Pelham -- While most in South Georgia are enjoying their Labor Day off; others are using this holiday as an opportunity to promote their town.

Five people from the Citizens Achieving Progress for Pelham extended their southern hospitality to visitors off Highway 19.

In their "Pause for Pelham" event, they offered bottled water and sweet ice tea to drivers. They also handed out a pamphlet with some of Pelham's attractions.

"A lot of small towns in a lot of communities in all the states, when interstates and four lane highways bypassed them, caused a lot of problems for the residents and the businesses," said CAPP member, Bill Frazier. "And we're just trying to let people know that Pelham, Georgia does exist."

The organization hopes that they can continue to hold the "Pause for Pelham" event during future holidays.
