The Leetle Man was Eating Catfish 
A Hahira Story By Leo Aikman 

Hahirans will always remember those lost and affected by the horrible terrorist attacks on the United States of America on 9/11/01.  We keep them in our thoughts and prayers. We encourage everyone to show their patriotism and do every thing possible to support those in need. We ask that you proudly fly our Nations flag in support of our Country, our President  and our men and women in uniform.
