THE ANNUAL STEP SING COMPETITION on the UNA campus is set for Thursday and Friday, January 28 and 29, at 7pm, and Saturday, January 30, at 5pm in Norton Auditorium. The theme for Step Sing 2021 is “Single Artist,” and the event allows competing campus organizations to show off their talents by performing choreographed songs, dances, and stories.

Thursday will be UNA Night. Friday will be Community Night, and Saturday will be reserved for a private showing for the guests of performers. Temperature checks will be taken at all entry points; face coverings will be required, and social distancing must be maintained. 

WITH FOOD BANKS ACROSS THE NATION struggling to meet demand, the Athens-Limestone Public Library is seeking to support a local food bank. They are asking people to bring canned and non-perishable food items or toiletries to the library.  These items will be donated to the Limestone County Churches Involved food pantry in downtown Athens.  In addition, the library will waive $1.00 in fines for every item donated through the month of January.

Food pantries have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. By donating these items you not only help a local food pantry in desperate need but can also clear your library account.  Fines cannot be waived for damaged or lost items.
