BACONTON, GA (WALB) - The residents of Baconton are celebrating today.  

It's been years in the making, and the mayor says thanks to SPLOST funds the dream for a new community center and library is now a reality.

The groundbreaking ceremony brought out a crowd to join in the celebration and hear about what they can expect from their new center.

"It's a needed source for our kids we will have summer programs and mentoring programs for them," said Mayor Annette Morman.

Retired teachers and librarians are volunteering to help run the center.
