October Field Trip: The Georgia Aquarium

Red Clay is hosting a field trip to the GA Aquarium on Oct. 29, 2010!

Friends and other family members are more than welcome to join.  Just let me know (a) if you will attend the field trip and (b) how many people you are bringing (and their ages). If we get 25 or more people, then we’ll qualify for a group rate. I need to know who’s going by the 11th of October.

There are a lot of different options and as a group we can decide which one sounds best for all of us. The cheapest group rate tickets are $23.50 (adult) and 17.50 (age 3-12). That is just a general admission to the aquarium. The admission that includes the 3D water show would be $26.50 for adults and $19.75 (age 3-12). The tickets that include the 3D water show AND the Planet Shark: Predator or Prey is $32.50 for adults and $25.75 (3-12). The tickets that includes the behind the scenes tour is $62 (adult) and $55.75 (3-12).

So, let me know if you do (or do not) want to go, who you will be taking (children, spouse, friend, etc), and which package you want by Oct. 11th.

September 2010 Picnic/Meet and Greet


Please join us on Friday, September 17, 2010 from 11:00a.m. – 1:00p.m. (or whenever we’re ready to leave) for a picnic at the William Harris Homestead in Monroe, GA.

From Athens, take Hwy. 316 to Hwy. 11, turn left, and the Homestead is just three miles down on the right.  (From Atlanta, turn right on Hwy. 11.)  It’s a beautiful 19th century Homestead with an original log house, barn, smoke house and other outbuildings.   View the website at

This event is free.  You just need to bring a picnic lunch for your family.  Please bring a blanket too – there are a few picnic tables, but there may not be enough seating for everyone.

Please note that this is NOT a tour of the Homestead.  It’s a picnic, and you are free to roam around and enjoy the grounds while you’re there.

Coordinator:  Shelli Pabis
