Unfortunately, we canceled the trip to Hiawassee–there was no afternoon concert this year. We do have some holiday trips planned:
Thursday, November 3–Great Smoky Mountain Railway, Bryson City, NC–$75
Thursday, December 15–Tate House Christmas Tour–$50
If you have experienced the death of a loved one, you know that holidays can be difficult. There are 2 Grief Share groups in Stephens County that may be helpful:
First Alliance Church–Tuesdays at 6:30 pm–Dennis Dodge–706-491-3018
Pleasant Hill Baptist Church–Fridays at 10 am–John Marr–706-356-2443
As always, please call or email if you have any questions about any activities or would like to sign up for any trips.
Thank you!Mary W. Smith, Director
