Tickets available to NAACP annual meeting

ALBANY, Ga. — Tickets are now available for the annual Freedom Awards Banquet conducted each year by the Albany-Dougherty branch of the NAACP.

This year’s banquet will be conducted at 6 p.m. on Sept. 27 at the Albany Civic Center banquet room. Guest speaker will be the Rev. Nelson B. Rivers III.

Tickets are available for $25 by calling (229) 432-7941 or by visiting the NAACP office at 136 N. Magnolia St.

NAACP officials say fewer tickets will be available this year because of the smaller banquet venue.
