We had a good turn out for History on the Lawn. Check out news articles, our facebook page etc. for more information.In case you are interested here is the information on the next Sons of Confederate Veterans meeting topic. Abraham Lincoln will be the subject of a talk by Robert Peecher at the meeting of the Brig. Gen. T.R.R. Cobb Camp No. 97 Sons of Confederate Veterans October 2 at 7:00 pm at the Watkinsville Community Center, VFW Drive. Peecher, a graduate of Oconee County High School, is editor and publisher of the weekly Oconee Leader and has previously worked at other newspapers in Georgia. He has published several books of fiction--a series of adventures placed loosely in historic settings.Melissa asked me to send this information out. It is part of the discussion that the county is having about what to do with historical preservation funds in SPLOST and since they are including us in the discussion she wondered if any of you had any comments on this idea. We want to present your thoughts at the next meeting.Attached is a copy of an article published in the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association Fall 2014 issue related to historic preservation in park and recreation departments.The article references Hurricane Shoals Park in Jackson County and the private group, Tumbling Waters Society, that supports the park by conducting fundraisers to assist in renovation projects and by providing volunteers hours to repair and maintain structures. As we discussed for Oconee County, the park in Jackson County has been utilized by the local school system for educational purposes. The article also mentions using SPLOST funds for restoration of the structures.Enjoy,Lisa D. Davol, CPREPeggy

Subject: [oconee] a novel about abolitionist John BrownDate: September 24, 2014 at 9:58:55 PM EDTTo: Oconee Democrats firstname.lastname@example.orgReply-To: email@example.com
"The Good Lord Bird" by James McBride is up next for the community book group sponsored by the Oconee Democrats.The Washington Post describes this novel about the abolitionist John Brown and a young slave as "deeply researched, richly imagined" and a "rambunctious comedy of errors." This very unusual book won the National Book Award for Fiction last year.
A few copies are available at a discount at Books Galore in Watkinsville.
The group meets the last Wednesday of every month (October 29th) upstairs at Chops and Hops in downtown Watkinsville, with the discussion beginning at 7 PM.
Newcomers are always welcome!
