The 43rd President of the United States will be the featured speaker at the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual benefit, June 22, 2019. The event will be held at McMinn County High School. The proceeds from this event will go toward downtown businesses and the chamber, which was heavily damaged by fire in 2017.
Bush’s visit to Athens will mark the first time since 1985 that a U.S. president has visited the McMinn County seat, when President Ronald Reagan spoke from the courthouse steps.
