Epilog…

Alas my friends, we have made it to the end.

There are no more street bucks around the next bend.

There are so many to thank, and so little time,

So perhaps instead, I will leave this last rhyme behind:

 

We have journeyed near and far, and found some new places,

Made some new friends, and put old names with new faces.

I hope you have gotten outside and found a buck or two to climb

The story here is done, until the next Once upon a time….

Hey Buck Hunters!  Did you miss a buck?  Here is your chance to go back and get them!  You have until August 31st at 11:59PM to get those pics to tom@batma.org for more chances at that fantastic Stay-cation!

Here are all the clues!  Good Luck!

The Buck Story

Each sponsor will receive a Buck statue to be decorated to their liking and set in their place of business throughout the Bucks on the Street project. The Buck will signify their interest in supporting the community of Buckhead and their involvement in Bucks on the Street. Sponsors will be promoted through all community events and their Bucks will be highlighted at the closing auction party.
