Hallmark of Spring "Poke Sallet Follies" Returns for 25th Year
A hallmark of Spring in the Athens-Limestone community takes music, quirky skits and a variety of local elected officials and community stewards and puts them on stage in "Poke Sallet Follies". This annual benefit fundraiser for The Athens Foundation on Aging enables many programs and services offered to community seniors including Meals On Wheels and the insurance information assistance program.
As "Poke Sallet Follies" marks its 25th Anniversary this year, audiences continue to enjoy the "poking" that many of the local officials and community members endure or deliver. Whether it be gents dressed in hula skirts performing - or attempting to perform - a perilous dance of the Pacific; an "utterly" ridiculous superhero or satirical take on a Top 40 hit -- dinner guest have walked away happy and often with sore sides.
