Rain or shine, the City of Troy wants residents to brown bag it downtown with neighbors today.

The second Brown Bag on the Square Concert Series begins at noon with free sack lunches and plenty of entertainment.

“If it does just rain, rain, rain, then we’ll take it to The Studio,” said Shelia Jackson, Troy’s director of tourism. “Hopefully though, it will be a bright, bright, bright sunshiny day.”

K&W Acoustics, Johnny Barron and DJHendock will provide entertainment during the hour-long event and Momma Goldberg’s Deli, Greenhills Funeral Home, Mayor Jason Reeves, State Rep. Alan Boothe and Steve Flowers made lunch possible, Jackson noted.

“We had about 200 people last time,” Jackson said. “We are planning for that many, again.”

The event is designed to foster good relations between community members and attract a crowd to Troy’s downtown area.

“We just want everyone to come down and have a good time with us,” Jackson said. “If you are working, just take that hour lunch break and spend it with us relaxing before you go back to the office.”

Troy Regional Medical Center will also provide free blood pressure checks at the event as a service to the community.

The Brown Bag series is presented by the City of Troy Public Relations and Tourism Department and will continue through July, resuming in the Fall. For more information, call (334) 670-2283.
