Fall at Lake Oconee this year has been slow to arrive! Just a week ago the temperature was
still in the 80s! Therefore, leaves are just beginning to turn to their oranges, reds, and yellows (yes, we have all four seasons here!). I am really ready to wear a sweater, make a fire in the fireplace, and cook some stew. Fortunately, the cool temperature is now here!
This October Lake Oconee residents have been extra busy with Fall Fundraisers. Golf courses have hosted Pink Ribbon Tournaments for breast cancer, church fundraisers for charity, and some college playoffs. Outdoor concerts were held by Harmony Crossing featuring Banks and Shane, Octoberfest at the Oconee Brewery (Episcopal Church)
featuring Good Vibrations band, and at Harbor Club (for the Greene County Boys and Girls Club) featuring the Sensational Sounds of Motown. Whew, we’re tired of dancing!
The Catholic Knights of Columbus men sold Tootsie Rolls candy at the intersection on Highway 44! Lake Oconee charities surely got a monetary shot in the arm this season.
Fall brings in Football season, an eagerly anticipated time is finally here. Many Lake Oconee fans drove to Atlanta to attend the Falcons’ first game in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Many University of Georgia fans and Georgia Tech fans pass through the Lake area on their way to tailgating before games. The fans’ car window flags are whipping in the breeze as people travel to their favorite college football game.
Young children and grown children are creating new costumes as Halloween approaches.
Some churches host Trunk or Treat or parties for the very young goblins, and many adults head for costume parties, also.
This Fall at Harbor Club, a Southern Living Home is open for view on weekends in October and November. It is described as a Modern Farmhouse and is open on weekends during
October and November. People who see it are abuzz about some of the brightly colored modern accessories and the bathtub in the shower! Come see it for yourself.
Another popular Fall activity is deer hunting. When we moved here from Atlanta, we were surprised to see vehicles move through
town with a deer carcass strapped to the roof! Men dressed in camouflage were seen at stores buying coffee and canned beans for sustenance.
Next in line is Thanksgiving! We just hope the Publix expansion will be finished before the
turkey buying frenzy begins. Many families gather for Thanksgiving at their family’s Lake Oconee home. Pumpkins, chrysanthemums, and corn sheaves decorate front porches. At our house, Thanksgiving is celebrated with a Southern favorite, fried turkey! Jim fries two (one is mustard coated) and has been the Hudson family favorite for the past 15 years.
The season for buying and selling homes has also been fast-paced this Fall! Come visit and find your four-season home at Lake Oconee. It is a great place to live all year.
