The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is encouraging members of the community to line Gainesville roadways Wednesday, Sept. 30, as a procession for sheriff’s office Lt. Stephanie Hollingsworth passes.

There will also be rolling closures at intersections including Dawsonville Highway to Pearl Nix Parkway, Pearl Nix Parkway to Browns Bridge Road and Browns Bridge Road to Memorial Park Drive while the family is escorted to the procession route.
