They will also be giving away hot dogs and hamburgers, and have a local disc jockey, 11-year-old Riben. who Freeman said is the son of a Griffin Police officer.
Sponsors for the fourth annual Back to School Bash include Arve’s. Trinity Health Care, Christian Ministry Hospice and Beck, Owen and Murray, who Freeman said “will talk to people about how to apply for disability.”
