Join FYN as we say farewell to 2012 with our special video highlighting the stories that moved Pickens County this past year.
Here, you’ll see clips of the courthouse construction, contentious budget meetings, and highpoints of the heated and dramatic 2012 Election Cycle! As we journey through this movie of memories, FYN would like to wish Pickens County a Happy New Year and we look forward to serving you in 2013!
2012 was a big year for the city of Jasper and Pickens County as a whole. Looking back at the year in review, it is easy to tell why the community of Jasper was full of excitement for the entire year.
Starting with bigger news from the announcement of courthouse renovations to the Jasper Banking Company closing and reopening as a Stearns Bank National Association, the year of 2012 was full of news that rocked the Jasper community.
If that wasn’t enough, the community of Jasper saw much more excitement when the town was chosen to be a location for the Clint Eastwood movie, “Trouble With the Curve.”
Other exciting events happened as Pickens County had its 1st Annual Pickens County Relay For Life parade, and then hosted its 32nd Annual Georgia Marble Festival. However, the year wasn’t over, as the community reached the top of its excitement at the county’s Jeep Fest and then finally at the unveiling of the Mayor’s new City of Jasper Duck Pond.
The year 2012 was one full of promise and potential for sports in Pickens County, as the high school’s sports teams had many memorable accomplishments, including the basketball teams making the state tournament, the baseball team defeating powerhouse Cartersville, and the football team posting its most wins since 2006 in Chris Parker’s first year as head coach. With so much success in the 2012 calendar year, watch out for even bigger and better things from the sports’ teams in Pickens County come 2013.
