“To take away some of the stress of the past few months, we have planned a wonderful event for all of you–the first ever in Dawson County Earth Day Celebration!! Please mark your calendar now for April 20 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Dawson County Public Library, 342 Allen St., Dawsonville
This event is sponsored by the North Georgia Conservation Coalition which was founded by 2 Democrats, Bette Holland and Virginia Matteson. We now have a great team of 14 volunteers working hard for the coalition and planning and organizing this fantastic Earth Day Event. We wanted to do something that would include ALL Dawson County and North Georgia Residents no matter what their political affiliation. “– Bette Holland Email. Bette Holland
Please join us at the Dawson County Library on Saturday April 20 to celebrate our Earth and to learn how to preserve it for future generations. From 10 am to 2 pm at the Dawson County Public Library we have lots of events for the whole family! This is sponsored by the North Georgia Conservation Coalition. This organization was founded in 2017 by several concerned Dawson County Democrats. But this is a totally non-partisan event. We are trying to get local conservatives on board with the Climate Change issue—as subtlety as possible. Please come and show them there are lots of people who care about climate change.
