Georgia Peanuts: Celebrating Pride On March 24 In Blakely

By Pam Golden, Georgia Peanut Commission March 14, 2012

It’s Peanut Proud time again, and the organizers are planning another day of family fun! In accordance with their mission statement, Peanut Proud, Inc. continues to “unite the peanut community in celebrating its pride through humanitarian efforts and the recognition of excellence.”

Last year, the peanut industry brought together more than 6,500 people for “Peanut Proud…Proud -N- Peanut Country.” This year, the industry wants to let everyone know how Peanut Proud is “Impacting Lives Around the World.”

Peanut Proud 2012 will be held Saturday, March 24 in Blakely, Ga. The day will begin with a 5K & Fun Run at 8:00 a.m., starting and ending on the courthouse square. The Peanut Proud Parade will follow at 10:00am. Daryle Singletary and Andy Griggs will provide morning entertainment. The peanut recipe contest is back. Kid games, bounce houses, art and crafts, antiques and collectibles, food vendors, and a Poker Run add to the festivities. That afternoon, award-winning John Berry (“Your Love Amazes Me”), Clovers & Company, Hwy 55, and Stormy Monday will perform live on the courthouse square. The day will conclude with a grand finale street dance featuring Three Times A Lady and The Fabulous Classics!

        
         

During the celebration, the Georgia Peanut Commission, the National Peanut Buying Points Association, The Peanut Institute, and the National Peanut Board will be on site oil-roasting delicious peanuts, grilling PB&J sandwiches, and handing out free samples of peanut products and nutritional information.

The 2012 Peanut Proud queens will be chosen the weekend before the celebration with a beauty pageant on March 17 at the Early County High School Magnum Auditorium. The 2012 Peanut Proud Scholarship will be awarded to a Food Safety graduate student the day of the expo.
