4th Annual "Georgia On My Mind" Georgia Night
Earlier this month the Georgia Parent Club celebrated their 4th annual "Georgia On My Mind" Night at USAFA.
250 Cadets attended the event, with 40 parent volunteers and 10 additional volunteers.
Broken Bones BBQ in Colorado Springs provided the delicious food for the evening. Including; brisket, pulled pork, smoked turkey, baked beans, homemade potato salad, mixed greens salad, and 3 cheese mac-n-cheese.
Pearson Farms, a Georgia company provided buttermilk pecan pies for dessert as well as an variety of Josh & Johns Ice Cream which we have to say, was a delicious combo with the pecan pies!
Swire Coca-Cola of Colorado Springs also provided variety cases of Coke products and sweet tea, lemonade and bottled water were the refreshments for the evening.
Princess Wallace of Connect 4 Events and Entertainment, a local DJ, was on hand to provide the Georgia Cadets and their guests with music and entertainment.
