"I just wanted to say a quick thank you for all your help with getting my senior trip to Dahlonega set... We had a great trip! Everyone enjoyed lunch, said that they did learn something new at the Museum and especially enjoyed the candy shops. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed it..."
