Valdosta Mayor John Gayle is encouraging everyone in Valdosta and Lowndes County to purchase tickets to the Bird Supper, which will be held in Atlanta on February 12….

Gayle added that this event is the largets of it’s kind among all other cities and counties in the state.

Gayle used the Health Sciences center in Valdosta as an example of how effective the Bird Supper can be when it comes to getting legislators to listen to the citizens of Valdosta and lowndes County.

“Two years ago when the Health Sciences Center was taken out of the state budget, after the Bird supper it was put back in rthe budget,” Gayle pointed out.
