Fair on the Square 500px

BI-LO store No. 5031 was a proud sponsor of the Millen, Georgia annual Fair-on-the-Square at the Jenkins County Courthouse Square earlier this month.Fair-on-the-Square is an annual craft fair that attracts vendors from all over the state and is held the first Saturday in October for the local community to enjoy.

The craft fair offered a full day of entertainment for local citizens and visitors alike. It also featured a parade, arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, clowns, live entertainment, and games for children.

BI-LO’s participation in the event included a fall-themed booth where attendees could purchase pumpkins, candy apples and cotton candy. BI-LO associates also cooked hot dogs, hamburgers and ribs for all attendees to enjoy during the fair. The BI-LO booth was not just full of tasty items, however, the team also had fun giveaways for children and parents who stopped by to enjoy the treats.

Many associates from store No. 5031 helped to make this event a huge success, including store director Bucky Martin, center store manager Jonathon Youmans, service lead Kryslynn Royal, produce manager Bill Bryan, market manager Willie Lockhart, and bookkeeper Xavier Mason.

“I was overwhelmed and pleased with the amount of associates that wanted to participate and volunteer their time at the event,” said store director Bucky Martin. “When our team comes together to give back to our local community, we achieve so much more! We are looking forward to sponsoring other events and participating in the 2015 Fair-on-the-Square.”
