The September Brown Bag will be an Alabama Bicentennial 200 event and the Reunion Troy committee will have information about up coming events, said Leigh Ann Windham, Reunion committee.

“We are excited about events that the city has planned that include a Downtown Troy Heritage Walk where we can trace our ancestors’ steps back in time through this historic downtown walk that features historical points of interest throughout downtown Troy,” Windham said. “On September 8, the Exploring Downtown Troy event will feature a downtown concert featuring the Park Band from 7 until 10 p.m.”

The concert will be sponsored by the City of Troy and the Sorrell College of Business GEEK Fest 2017.

On September 9 the Johnson Center for the Arts will sponsor a Chalk Walk from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Children of all ages will be invited to create their own work of chalk art on the downtown sidewalks.

“Also on September 9, everyone is invited to eat, shop and socialize with downtown vendors and Trojan fans before the Troy University vs. Alabama State game which kicks off at 5 p.m.” Windham said.

The Reunion Troy committee is encouraging all citizens to plan reunions of their own during the three-year Bicentennial celebration.

“These can be family reunions, class reunions, employee reunions, club reunions, just any way to bring people together to celebrate all that we are as Alabamians,” Windham said. “Reunion Troy information packets will be available at Brown Bag on Wednesday and we encourage all Troy citizens to get involved as we celebrate Alabama’s Bicentennial.”
