A job well done

As one of the volunteers handing out cold watermelon to the parched Georgia paddlers as they pulled into the park after 21 miles of paddling on the river last Thursday, I was in an enviable position to hear the positive comments about Newnan, Coweta and Chattahoochee Bend State Park (CBSP).

These comments were so positive, in fact, that I feel I must pass them on. In a nutshell, they loved our area and our hospitality. They were impressed with Wednesday’s River Fest event, our volunteers and sponsors, the beauty of our downtown, the great restaurants, the fun shops, and the overnight accommodations. They very definitely felt welcomed and vowed to return soon to spend more time in our beautiful county.

The atmosphere of camaraderie continued on Thursday, under the CBSP pavilion while participants partook in the refreshments, read The Newnan Times-Herald, and visited with GA Parks Director Becky Kelley and CBSP staff headed up by park manager Tim Banks. The GA Friends Group of CBSP, Newnan Main Street, the CBSP personnel, and all of the sponsors and participants should take a moment to reflect on a job well done.
