New Banners for Williamston


Williamston has decided to revamp its obsolete city banners and introduce bright new ones to the downtown area. “Yes, the current banner inventory of banners that we have for the city are worn and outdated,” said Tammy Gilroy, Williamston mayor. “The new design will be more in line with our city’s current branding and identity moving forward.”

At the Williamston City Council meeting March 26, pictures of the banners were shown and were predicted to go up in the summer. The city clerk Holly Thompson has been overseeing the banner project and has worked with the designer over the past couple months. “She[Thompson] took the lead on the banner project,” said Rachel Piner city treasurer.

Parent Information Night: Summer Camps


It might be cold outside, but the Williamston Parents Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is thinking about summer. The Williamston Elementary School PTSA Parent Information night, a supposed “one-stop shop” for parents of Williamston Elementary students, will be held April 16, by the PTSA. This event will take place in the Discovery Elementary Cafeteria 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.

“Everyone is welcome, no matter what school district their students attend,” said Michelle Eichler, the member of the Williamston Chamber of Commerce who is hosting the event. “The event is amazing, I used to spend weeks online trying to fill my children’s summer. This event makes it all happen in one hour.”

This is the second year for this event, but even though it is just starting out, its popularity continues to grow.
