Words from Lynn
Isabella Station Opens
Downtown Sylvester is growing again! And we are very excited to welcome Worth Counties own Shane Brooks. Shane recently returned home
to open a new restaurant in Downtown Sylvester. He and his longtime
friend, Chris Bryant, chose Downtown Sylvester and are happy to return
home. The new Restaurant “Isabella Station” is located at 101 North
Isabella Street. They will be open Wednesday through for lunch and
Thursday through Saturday for dinner. Everyone is so very excited for
Shane and Chris to return homed and venture out with “Isabella Station”.
Once the guys secured the location for the restaurant, they began researching the community Shane grew up in and found that Sylvester was
formally known as "Isabella Station" and this is where the name comes
from. The restaurant business is definitely not new to the guys. This is a
way of life for them, and I can promise when you visit their restaurant
you will not be disappointed. Blue Plate Specials can be found daily as
well as a wonderful variety of menu selections. Larry and I have visited
several times and just love it. The appetizers are great and have a variety
to choose from which will start your meal great. Choosing an entre will
be difficult because all the food is great but I get my own specialty which
is a Cheeseburger, really think and really done which is also known to
the cooks as the “Lynn Burger” and it is fabulous!! Take a few moments
out of your busy life style and go visit Isabella Station. You will LOVE
it!! For more information contact the restaurant at 229-463-7080.

Thank you for your loyalty. We appreciate you.
Happy Fourth of July to everyone! I hope
everyone is having a great day, has had a
great weekend and will have a great week!
We have sure been busy this weekend having
a great time together as a family. We enjoyed the fireworks from the Albany Marine
Base on Friday night and then had a great
supper at Talk of the Town. Always enjoying family and friend time. Saturday, Larry
and I decided to take a trip to Albany for a
few hours and we had a great time. We went
to the Christian book store, toy store, to eat
lunch and then to get my car washed. They
had to run the car through the car wash twice
so I guess they were trying to say it was
dirty ;)… We also enjoyed some family
time, pool time and went to church on Sunday. If you do not have a church home, we
would love for you to come visit with us at
Gordy New Bethel Baptist Church. We enjoy it so much. I teach the 4th-6th graders
and LOVE every minute of it. With July
here, it’s time to start making those back to
school lists and Christmas lists. I know you
are probably thinking Christmas already??
But Hobby Lobby has the Christmas items
out and ready for you to shop up a storm. I
want to remind everyone to please stay tuned
to the dates to remember here in The Martin
News along with the calendar of events
posted by the Sylvester Worth County
Chamber of Commerce which will keep you
up to date on all the great things happening
in our Community. We would love to see
you all there. I hope you all have a great
week and as always, Thank You so much for
your support to the Martin News.

Worth County Health Department Employee Awarded District Honor
Worth County Health Department Immunization Coordinator Cynthia McKinney has received an award from Southwest
Health District’s Immunization Program for “Outstanding Service and Dedication.” McKinney was nominated by Worth
County Health Department Nurse Manager Gina Connell, whose recommendation helped cinch her the award, said Rebecca Snow, who oversees the District Immunization Program. “The nominations came from throughout the District,”
Snow said. “Cynthia’s dedication for assuring people in our community are properly vaccinated shows in her interaction
with our patients,” said Connell. “She is genuinely concerned and enjoys explaining all vaccinations to them. She does
not mind taking extra time with patients who have a lot of questions because she wants them knowledgeable with all
needed vaccines.” McKinney is quick to share the credit with her colleagues. “I feel that all of us at Worth are responsible for that award, we work as a team and depend on one another,” she said. “We are fortunate to have Cynthia as part of
our team her at Worth County Health Department,” Connell concluded. For information on how immunizations safely
and effectively protect against diseases, contact the Worth County Health Department at 777-2170. For great new stories

America programs have been working to protect and advance for years, strengthening the economic, social, and cultural
fabric of communities across the country." The organization's performance is annually evaluated by the Georgia Main
Street Program, which works in partnership with the National Main Street Center to identify the local programs that meet
