Hello GCB Members,
We are all preparing to gather for the 2017 GCB convention and conference in Gainesville this weekend. It looks like the weather should be nice, if unseasonably warm. with low to mid eighties during the day and low sixties at night.
A note to drivers coming to Gainesville. The Ramada Inn Lanier Centre is located at 400 E.E. Butler Parkway, Gainesville, Georgia 30501. This is at the corner of E.E. Butler Parkway and Jesse Jewell Parkway. Coming north on Interstate 985, E.E. Butler Parkway is Exit 22. However, the hotel sits on the left side of this four lane highway, and there is no traffic light at the side entrance Drivers may prefer to take Exit 20, Queen City Parkway. You will turn left onto Queen City Parkway at the traffic light. You will go approximately two miles and turn right onto Jesse Jewell Parkway. You will go approximately one mile and turn right into the Ramada Inn front entrance. After the convention ends, you can easily leave the Ramada Inn by the side exit and turn right onto E.E. Butler Parkway and go back to Interstate 985. Drive safely, and we look forward to seeing you this weekend.
Harvey and Dianne Roberts
Greater Hall Chapter
