THIS IS A RACE YOU RUN WHERE YOU ARE.  DO NOT SHOW UP AT THE PARK AND EXPECT TO BE TIMED (NO ONE WILL BE THERE)

Celebrate the life of Bubber Wilkes. Bubber was raised on a family farm in Oconee County. In high
school, he was active in the 4-H Program. He spent 30 years raising turkeys and 12 years raising chickens.  Bubber Wilkes served on the Oconee Planning Commission from 1982 to 1984 and on the BOC for about 20 consecutive years from 1985 to 2004 and again in 2014. He was a deacon at Antioch Christian Church. Many of us remember Bubber as a runner and our friend.
