The committee for the Growing Up in Athens book project has extended the deadline to Feb. 15 for people to submit written memories.

The book will be a collection of memories and photos of Athens provided by people who grew up in Athens or Athens County.

“We are receiving memories every day from people who grew up here. We have heard from others who are still working on their submissions so we’ve extended the deadline,” said Linda Philips, committee chair.

Written memories may be submitted online at or hard copies sent to GUIA, 171 N. Congress St., Athens, OH 45701. The committee can be reached at
