One event we never miss is the Coweta Samaritan Clinic’s annual fundraiser. So, put on your jeans and boots and join us for the 11th Annual Bluegrass & Barbecue on Sunday, October 3, 2021 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm in the parking lot behind Dunc’s BBQ Kitchen (98 Jackson St., Newnan)! This event will feature barbecue from Dunc’s BBQ Kitchen, great bluegrass music, and lots of fun!
