Have you ever been really impressed with someone?
We're overrun with outstanding individuals in Fayette County. Every time I turn around it seems I meet someone who's giving... and giving... of their time and resources to help others in the community, and beyond. Most are giving quietly, not tooting their own horn or looking for a pat on the back. They see a need, it tugs at their heart strings, and they're off on a mission....

Bear on the Square Mountain Festival
The Bear on the Square Mountain Festival is an incredible weekend of music and art held each spring in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. From April 18-20, 2008, old time and bluegrass music will fill the Historic Public Square in Dahlonega, GA. Headlining the stage performances are old-time music legends Norman and Nancy Blake and the dynamic Carolina Chocolate Drops with their exciting, authentic string band music. Jamming goes on day and night around the square while other local, regional, and national musicians take the stage all day Saturday and Sunday. A juried artist's marketplace features traditional mountain art and crafts. Extensive music workshops, a Sunday morning Gospel Jam, a street dance, a live auction, children's activities, a heritage center demonstrating mountain traditions, and of course, food, complete the offerings, making Bear on the Square the perfect outing for the whole family.

Believe IV
To round out the book, let me finish up the cross country story. As you know, I wanted to qualify for Nationals. Did I? Sort of. On the day of the District meet, I decided that I had to finish at least 15th in order to qualify for the National Meet.
