As I write this, Thanksgiving is two days away.  I encourage all of us to be thankful for our many blessings. As soon as we think we are in a tough situation, all we need do is look around us and we are sure to find others with greater need.  I am thankful for living in Dawsonville and Dawson County. We have a beautiful place to live with good schools, good health care, good economic opportunity, good community espirt de corps, and friendly people.  I am also thankful for those thankful for those dedicated employees I work with every day whose dedication to duty and customer service are commendable. 

Please join us December 1st as our community kicks of the Christmas season at City Hall. There will be a Jingle Market from 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm in and around City Hall and the GRHOF, multiple food trucks from 3:00 pm until 8:00 pm, pictures with Santa, a Christmas Parade at 5:00 pm, tree lighting at dusk, music from the DCHS Chamber Singers, a hand bell choir from the First Baptist Church of Cumming, the Sole Impulse dancers, cookie decoration and roasting marshmallows. Come on out and join us for a great time.  Many thanks to our hosts and sponsors, including, City of Dawsonville, Dawson County Chamber of Commerce, Townley Construction, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), Medical Plaza 400, John Seibel Photography, Food Lion, Christina and Shane Brooks with Tucker the Truck, Georgia Racing Hall of Fame GRHF), Hansard Cleaning Service and Mountain Lake Church.

Upcoming projects anticipated in the coming months include, upgrade of our phone system, a new service contract for information technology, an improved website, a sidewalk from Shoal Creek Road along Perimeter Road to the entrance to Rain Hill subdivision, sidewalk from Allen Street to City Hall, various road and parking lot paving, and sidewalk from Allen Street at Perimeter Road past Robinson Elementary to Hwy 9 N. We are researching the development of city streets to allow additional parking and hopefully the site of a public restroom for serving the downtown area. Additionally, we have many ‘behind the scenes’ projects that ensure a successful future for Dawsonville, such as an upgrade of well #108, and expansion of our sewage capacity.
