 With the price of gas this summer, we are all looking for a less
 expensive way to take our vacations and still leave home. We

 are approximately 90 minutes from Atlanta and about 2 hours
 from Ashville. That is only about 1 tank of gas.

 Renting a cabin in the North Georgia Mountains is a perfect
 way to go. There is so much to do here. Fishing is a great
 family experience; get back to the all American summer past
 time. We have many cabins on water that have great fishing.                                                    Trout Haven

 The white water rafting experience here is indescribable.                                                 directly through the backyard
 There are two great rivers to raft on, the Ocoee and the                                                  and offers catch and release
 Nantahala. Rafting is a wonderful, adventurous family outing.                                             fishing. This cabin is great for
                                                                                                           a vacation hideaway.
 Horse back riding, tubing, taking a trip on the Blue Ridge
 Scenic Railway or just leisurely strolling through the unique
 shops in the area can be a great family experience.

               FATHER’S DAY ~ JUNE 15

                   IN THE
               UNITED STATES

The idea for creating a day for children to honor their fathers began in
Spokane, Washington. A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd
thought of the idea for Father's Day while listening to a Mother's Day
sermon in 1909.
                                                                                        4th of July
      Having been raised by her father, William Jackson Smart, after her    There is still plenty of time to make

her. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices and was, in    weekend. What a great way to kick
the eyes of his daughter, a courageous, selfless, and loving man.             off the summer spending the
Sonora's father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first Father's       weekend with family in the
Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910.                 Blue Ridge Mountains

     In 1926, a National Father's Day Committee was formed in New
York City. Father's Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of
Congress in 1956. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a
permanent national observance of Father's Day to be held on the third
Sunday of June. So Father's Day was born in memory and gratitude by               Life is too short

honored with a special day just like we honor our mothers on Mother's              to wake up in
