Athens Today--April 5
Better start walking more. Swim suit time approaches!
Thank you, Athens! The 24-hour marrow-a-thon to find a bone marrow donor for 12-year-old Kajal Patel, who suffers from an immunity disorder, has resulted in a match. In fact, the effort has produced more than one. So now, she can start to recover. Kajal and her parents are at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. We love happy endings, don’t you?
One of Athens’ best restaurants, Five & Ten, is trying to move from its Lumpkin Street location to South Milledge, to the building that used to be Hawthorne House.
