4th of July Big Canoe Style

By
Real Estate Agent with All Mountain Realty

Most communities have some sort of 4th of July bash, but Big Canoe, Georgia did it in style! Not only did we have fireworks over Lake Sconti, where thousands watched from the playing fields, tennis courts as well as the lake, but the Army Ground Forces Band, the Jazz Guardians, out of Fort McPherson (Atlanta, Ga) preformed a free concert at the Big Canoe Chapel's Terraces, an outdoors amphitheater in the round! Approximately 850 folks joined in to celebrate our country's birth and listened to superb jazz and swing music under the stars!  We were able to collect over $4000 to donate to the USO; helping those that give so much to all of us.  Big Canoe Chapel also sponsored the free concert at the Chapel entitled Musica Variata presented Sunday evening. We were treated to piano, organ, harpsichord, violin and fabulous vocals honoring our heritage. Martha Washington even graced us with some tales of Colonial America! What fun, what pride, what talent!! We hosted one of the largest crowds here in Big Canoe over that busy weekend and I sure hope that everyone had a much fun as I did!
