SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Thursday we celebrated our going mobile community tour with lots of people in Sylvester.

Melissa, Yolanda, Jake, and Jim and the WALB News Ten crew broadcast our 5:30 newscast live at the train depot in Sylvester.  We had dozens of people come out to join us and watch the newscast. And we had a lot of fun getting to meet them and taking pictures with them.

And it was a great way to let all of South Georgia know about Sylvester's pride in the growth their community is seeing.

Sylvester Mayor Bill Yearta said "We've got a lot of things going on in the city, and certainly the school system with the new high school.  A lot of new businesses in town, and some new restaurants in town too, we're real proud of."

Thanks to all the folks who came out and had a good time with us in Sylvester.  We really appreciate you.

And next Thursday,  we go on the road again. Our Going Mobile Community Tour is headed to Fitzgerald.

So make plans to come see us Thursday in Fitzgerald.
