To honor the heroes and pay
to the victims and families of 9/11, Oconee County 4-H members lit luminaries Wednesday that
lined the streets of downtown Watkinsville.
This was the third year 4-H members lit the luminaries on September 11, said Joey Bristol of the Oconee County Extension. They started in 2011 to commemorate the 10th anniversary.
At 9:11 p.m., a moment of silence was observed in front of the courthouse flag.
