The University of Georgia's Hargrett Library is bringing sports artifacts from the UGA Athletic Association archive to two Cobb County Libraries in July. The first stop for the Georgia memorabilia is at South Cobb Regional Library, 805 Clay Road, Mableton, on Monday, July 11, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. The second stop will take place at North Cobb Regional Library, 3535 Old 41 Highway, Kennesaw, on Thursday, July 21, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Following the National Championship football season of 2021, the exhibit understandably will include lots of football items. But other University of Georgia sports also will be well represented, including Georgia Bulldogs track and field star Keturah Orji's 2016 Rio Olympics uniform.

More than 40 items are included in the 2022 exhibit, representing various eras and sports from Georgia athletics. Other items include tickets and football programs, a copy of "The Red & Black March" (Georgia's first ever fight song), and more!

While the exhibit items strictly will be "look-but-don't-touch," staff from the Hargrett Library will be on hand to discuss the exhibit.

I'm a trained journalist, global traveler and retired business executive who worked for more than 20 years with some of the world's best and largest restaurant enterprises. I left the business world behind, living in Northwest Georgia and writing about avocations including outdoor excursions, family-friendly travel, road trips, exploration ideas for active seniors and some of my community passions. I've traveled to 47 states and nearly as many countries, and I'm still counting up. I'm a traveler, hiker, cyclist, blogger, marketing consultant, community volunteer and local high school band nerd who previously has lived in Florida, Ohio, Indiana and Mississippi. I'm a South Louisiana-born French Cajun whose great-grandparents were sugar farmers, bar owners and reputed bootleggers. My upbringing in food-rich Louisiana and my restaurant industry career affirmed my status as an over-qualified eater. That also inspired the name of my blog, OurTravelCafe.com. There, I offer up a complete menu of our my own experiences, explorations and adventures, organized by geography and always sprinkled with some spicy, tasty tidbits and food notes.
