 Bicentennial Torch and Traveling History Display

The Bicentennial torch will on display at George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center from September 25 through October 2.

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. A traveling Gwinnett County history exhibit will accompany the torch to many of these locations.

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 the George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center at approximately 3:00pm on October 2 on its way to the next location, Suwanee City Hall (arrival time approximately 4:00pm).

Charlotte was born January 27, 1916, in the family home on Level Creek Road (Sugar Hill, Gwinnett County). Living a full and adventurous life, she ventured from Gwinnett County in the midst of The Great Depression to Detroit, Michigan. There she found

employment and sent money home to assist her family. At the advent of World War II, she joined the Women’s Army Corps and served her country as a supply officer on several bases across the U.S. Married in 1946 in San Antonio, Texas, Charlotte and her husband were actively involved in the National Campers and Hiker’s Association for over 20 years. Here they served as state and national directors. It was during this time that Charlotte developed her skills as a painter. Her last years were devoted to creating three books about her life in “The House on Level Creek Road”, describing her life throughout the gold mining days, depression, and the war. It also describes her family life lived in the home on Level Creek Road and the family’s role in Gwinnett County.

 Bicentennial Torch and Traveling History Display

The Bicentennial torch will on display at George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center from September 25 through October 2.

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. A traveling Gwinnett County history exhibit will accompany the torch to many of these locations.

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 the George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center at approximately 3:00pm on October 2 on its way to the next location, Suwanee City Hall (arrival time approximately 4:00pm).

Visit www.Gwinnett200.com for more information on Gwinnett’s Bicentennial and to follow the torch route.

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.
