8:00 AMBicentennial Torch and Traveling History Display

The Bicentennial torch will on display at Auburn City Hall from July 18 through July 30.

The Bicentennial torch will be relayed by cross country and track teams from Gwinnett Public High School serving as torchbearers in this yearlong torch relay that will cover approximately 200 miles. Runners will carry the torch to historic sites, public facilities, and cities in Gwinnett throughout 2018, the bicentennial celebration year.

The Gwinnett County Bicentennial Torch Relay represents goodwill, the connection between communities, and Gwinnett County’s journey from 1818 to today, where it transformed from a largely agrarian community to one of the fastest growing, most diverse counties in the Southeast.

Gwinnett County’s bicentennial torch made its debut on December 15, 2017, at the bicentennial celebration’s first official event, A Frontier Affair: Prelude to Gwinnett’s Bicentennial, held at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. On December 19, 2017, the torch made its second appearance at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center for a special presentation during a meeting of the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners. The torch relay will culminate at the County’s 200th Birthday Celebration on December 15, 2018, at Gwinnett’s Infinite Energy Center.

The torch will depart from Auburn City Hall at approximately 9:30am on July 30 on its way to the next location, the Braselton Welcome and Heritage Center (arrival time approximately 10:30am).

Kudzu Art Zone presents exhibitions by local, regional, national and international artists. It demonstrates proactive local leadership by educating artists of all ages; cultivating and growing audiences; and encouraging collaboration among diverse artists, institutions, communities and supporters. A group of artists shared a vision of a thriving artist community and in June 2006 Kudzu Art Zone became a non-profit corporation. In late 2006, the City of Norcross donated a 3,200sq ft. building, Kudzu Art Zone’s current home at 116 Carlyle St. The building features a gallery, artist’s studios and ample space for professional and artistic development opportunities. With over 100 artist members, the Kudzu Art Zone has become a place to thrive, of community support and fellowship.

FacilityGeorge Pierce Park


Born and raised in Georgia, Peggy has been a Lilburn resident since 1965. While enjoying painting a variety of subjects, her true passion is painting on canvas. Peggy prefers the versatility of oils to create realistic pictures in a traditional realistic manner. Whether

capturing unique still life, landscape, flowers, or nostalgic scenes, she also seeks out historical subject matter to remind us of our heritage. With a desire to preserve beauty and accuracy in her paintings, her goal is to capture the essence of her subject in a way

that will evoke a feeling of emotion from the viewer. Peggy teaches adult and children’s art classes and has won many awards for her paintings. A series of her work entitled “A Moment in Time”, is a collection of historic and nostalgic scenes of Lilburn. One of Peggy’s portraits, Lilburn Trigg Myers, hangs in the new Lilburn City Hall.
