April: Safe Digging Month

Celebrate April as Safe Digging Month! Below are resources to be used by stakeholders to share the importance of safe digging. For questions or to share additional ideas please contact mestes@georgia811.com.

To celebrate Safe Digging Month, Georgia 811 will have TWO giveaways that run from April 1st to April 30th. Our Go Fishing With Flukemaster giveaway will give one lucky winner a trip to go fishing with YouTube star Gene Jensen a.k.a. Flukemaster. We will also be doing a Lowe’s Gift Card Giveaway where FOUR lucky winners will receive a $250 Lowe’s gift card. Make sure you enter both giveaways!
