Giving thanks before this year ends, I would like to extend my thanks to the following groups for making this a great year to live in Dawson County.
First, thank you to Bob Alman and the Rotary Club of Dawson County for the summer carnival to open the Splash Pad at Rock Creek. It was an amazing day of games, music, good food and lots of fun. The children of this county are truly blessed.
Next, thanks to those who run our public facilities; the Dawson County Parks and Recreation Department and Matt Payne for the amazing job they do providing beautiful parks and recreation facilities in the county. The improvements to Veterans Memorial Park’s new pool house and pool area were wonderful.
Thank you to Stacey Leonhardt and the staff at the Chestatee Regional Library in Dawsonville for an array of programs, classes and activities for both children and adults. If you have not visited this library, you will be amazed by the activity that is happening there on a daily basis.
Last, I would be remiss if I did not mention the repair of two bridges in the county on Hwy. 136 and Hwy. 9. We endured months of inconveniences, but at the end of the day, the improvements were worth it. Thank you.
