Fort Gordon-CSRA Community Expo

Gordon Club Fort Gordon, GA
The Fort Gordon Spouses’ & Civilians’ Club invites all in the Central Savannah River Area to the Fort Gordon-CSRA Community Expo on Aug. 20. The annual Expo features more than 120 local attractions, businesses and community organizations eager to connect with military personnel and civilians associated with Fort Gordon. The free event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gordon Conference and Catering Center on Fort Gordon.
“Fort Gordon is continuously welcoming new personnel from all service branches and civilians,” said Melissa Ebbing, FGSCC president. “The Expo is your one stop to get plugged in to the greater CSRA community and find out about activities that you otherwise might miss.”
This year’s Expo showcases a variety of local attractions, organizations and businesses from coffee houses to universities, to nonprofits and Fort Gordon services. In addition to gathering valuable information from vendors, attendees can win door prizes throughout the day and enjoy free Papa John’s pizza and Coca-Cola beverages.
This will be the second year the FGSCC leads the event, having taken over last year from the CSRA Alliance for Fort Gordon. The Alliance remains a sponsor of the event along with the Fort Gordon Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, the Augusta Metro, Columbia County and North Augusta chambers of commerce, Papa John’s and Coca-Cola. All will have program and event information available at the Expo.
Proceeds from the Expo fund the scholarship and grant programs of the FGSCC. Over the past three years, the Spouses’ & Civilians’ Club has awarded almost $100,000 in scholarships and grants to military dependents and community organizations dedicated to serving those affiliated with the military.
“Serving the Fort Gordon community is our mission and the Expo has become a vibrant part of that,” said Ebbing. “We are excited to watch the Expo grow.”
Fort Gordon Spouses’ & Civilians’ Club is an active part of the Fort Gordon community, leading community service projects, operating the popular Fort Gordon Thrift Shop and providing volunteer opportunities, special events and activities. A private nonprofit organization, FGSCC is not affiliated with Fort Gordon or the U.S. Army. Membership in the club is open to anyone affiliated with Fort Gordon.

Books and Pizza Meet in New Library Book Club

Pizza Central in Evans
Evans, GA — Are you ready for a new kind of book club? Columbia County Library staff will host the Pub Fiction book club at Pizza Central in Evans. The group will meet the second Monday of each month, beginning August 10. The first book selection is The Martian by Andy Weir.
“We’ve had suggestions from patrons to do more to appeal to young professionals who aren’t available during normal library hours,” said library reference manager Natalie Gibson. “This book club will be a relaxed meet-up where people can eat some pizza, have a drink, and talk about books that the group will choose.”
“We picked The Martian as the first book because it has mass appeal, and the movie version will be released in October,” said Gibson.
The Martian follows astronaut Mark Watney after a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive--and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old 'human error' are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next.

Reservations are recommended but not required. Reserve your spot at augustpubfiction.eventbrite.com. For more library services and information, visit www.gchrl.org or call 706-863-1946.
