2009 Fall Ramble to Washington, Georgia


The Georgia Trust 2009 Fall Ramble
Washington, Georgia
September 18 - 19

The Georgia Trust 2009 Fall Ramble is less that two months away! We are very excited to have the chance to share the charm and beauty of Washington, Georgia with our members. Chartered in 1780, Washington was the center of Georgia's first major back-country settlement. Washington has the most antebellum homes per capita in Georgia and is also home of the Mary Willis Libray, the first free, public library in Georgia.

Friday Activities
Registration will take place at the Chamber of Commerce Welcome Center (29 West Square) from 11 - 5. There are several delightful restaurants surrounding the square in which to enjoy a delicious lunch before starting the Friday Ramble.

The Friday Ramble will take participants on a ride through the countryside and explore Washington's outlying areas including the picturesque hamlet of Danburg in North Wilkes County.

A New Member Reception will take place at a spectacular private home where light hors d'Ĺ“uvre and drinks will be served. Any member that brings a new member to the Ramble is also invited to attend this reception. Please indicate on your invitation if you are bringing a new member and have your guest do the same.

Dinner will be at Peacewood Plantation, a fabulous home that still boasts several of its original dependencies. A delicious barbecue to feast upon under the stars will be provided.

Saturday Activities
Saturday's activities will begin at the First Baptist Church (105 West Robert Toombs Avenue) with registration, breakfast, and a brief orientation.

Ramblers will then be invited into the gracious homes and downtown attractions of Washington, the county seat. Lunch will be available for pick up from 12 -2 at the United Methodist Church.
