Why come! Yes, it’s a ways to travel (unless you are Tom Murphy, ’67 who only lives 20 minutes from the Bowers’). But, it’s Fall! Beautiful Georgia countryside. Lots of trees and lots of fall colors! Plenty of food and new folks to meet you don’t know and others you haven’t seen in a while. Bring your spouse, bring your kids, bring your friends. Oh, and did I mention the horses?

It will be a FUN time and well worth the trip!
