Thanks for summer of learning in Elba

It is hard to put into words what my time here in Elba this summer means to me. I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and memories that will never be forgotten. I’m so lucky to have gotten the opportunity to call this city my home for the past ten weeks, and I will miss it dearly.

Throughout this summer, I enjoyed many opportunities to experience some of the fun aspects of living in Elba. The clubs, organizations, food and the events held in the city have been great. They bring people of the community together. Of course, the Pea River is one of the town’s main attractions.

The Elba Church of Christ has a great impact on the members of its community. From worship services every Sunday to providing food for those in need, this Elba church is a great place to get involved. Every Monday and Thursday, the church hosts food banks.

Lawford's Hardware represents value of local businesses
Lawford's Hardware represents value of local businesses

In most cases, local businesses are the backbone of small towns.  These businesses help bring people together and have a great impact on the community. One example of a local business in Elba is Lawford’s Hardware store at 333 Davis St. on the downtown square.  This store is stocked with all kinds of tools, fishing gear and just about everything needed for home repairs.
