Georgia on My Mind Day is Friday

Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet are at the Georgia Welcome Centers.

I know that because the women who work at our center are, and so are the employees at the Georgia/South Carolina border. I'm not familiar with the folks at the one at the Georgia/Florida one because we're usually there after it's closed.

I got an email this morning that says it’s time again for Georgia on My Mind Day.

All of the Georgia Welcome Center sites will have a day where representatives of area attractions will be on hand to talk to people that stop by. You don’t have to be a newcomer to the area, either.

Our center is at 1751 Williams Road (at I-185 and Exit 12).

Old-timers will probably say, "Isn't it downtown?"

Well, it was, a long time ago. The new one is ever so much bigger and nicer.

Georgia on My Mind Day is 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday.

You’ll get to meet a knight from Medieval Times Dinner Theater. Now, that’s not here in Columbus. You’ll have to drive to Lawrenceville, north of Atlanta, to Discover Mills Mall, if you want to have dinner at Medieval Times.

You’ll get to see some animals from Wild Animal Safari, the Rock Ranch and Zoo Atlanta.
