WOW!  Super 2018 Oyster Roast and BBQ Fundraiser!

Saturday, Feb. 17  8th Oyster Roast and BBQ Fundraiser at Hudson Creek Lodge

A big THANK YOU to our Oyster Roast Committee, sponsors and contributors, and all who attended for helping make this a successful fundraiser for KMB and for your support of a clean, green and beautiful Darien and McIntosh County.

KMB is an independent and self-funding non-profit organization and our annual Oyster Roast is the main source of funds for our operation and programs, including our Abandoned Buildings Program.  The success of our annual fundraiser, along with the support of members, businesses, organizations and friends is vital.

Thanks, too, to KMB member Bob Claxton for once again taking great photos of the event and for sharing them with all of us.

Historic Elm Grove Baptist Church in Meridian

The buildings have changed, but Elm Grove Baptist Church has occupied for more than 125 years the site on Ga Hwy 99 in Meridian where it is today.  Old photos show simple, well-maintained structures and premises.  Today, a clean, and neatly mowed yard, freshly mulched shrubs, and beautiful wreaths on the church doors that change with the season characterize the premises now, earning Elm Grove a Green Thumb Award.

Vann Brooks maintains the grounds and church buildings.  Rev. Jerald Thomas, the pastor of Elm Grove for 26 years, can’t say enough good things about him. “He takes great pride in what he does,” says Pastor Thomas.

Brooks also tends some of Elm Grove’s history.  In a place of honor next to the present church, are the church bell and cornerstone from the original church, which was built in 1888.

The KMB Green Thumb Award is presented to a different business, residence or institution each month, “for going above and beyond in keeping their outside premises clean and attractive” and their contribution to a clean, green and beautiful McIntosh County.  Nominations from the community are welcomed.

Look for the colorful Green Thumb Award Yard sign! Contact us.

Our Past Green Thumb Award Honorees can be seen here.
