Guaranteed to tell you something you didn't know yesterday.
Good morning Lilburn. It's Thursday, July 21 and we feel fine. Here's your digital checklist for today. 1. They Have a Day for This? We’re not sure who is responsible for it, but it’s apparently National Junk Food Day today.

Toss aside the broccoli and bring on a Scrumpdiddlyumptious Bar. 2. You’re Not Going to Let Snellville Win, Are You? We love our Friday night farmer’s market in Old Town, but how much do you? The Lilburn Farmer’s Market …
