April is National Poetry month and we have several ways to celebrate!
Poetry Window Display:
Athens Poet Laureate, Jeff Fallis, is bringing his poetry to you!

To participate, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your business name and address by March 27th, 2022 and a poster will be delivered by March 31st, 2022.
