2014 Fort Daniel Frontier Fair

GMS at Fort Daniel Frontier Fair
Buford, GA
Saturday, September 20, 2014

Shelley Stubbs, Charles Carter, Lori Carter, and Mary Gurney were on hand to represent GMS at the Fort Daniel Frontier Fair. Tom Batcha and Linda Batcha lended their tent plus they hauled everything back and forth to the event. Leslie Perry and Frank Perry were also there as members of the Gwinnett Archaeological Research Society and the Fort Daniel Foundation.

GMS was invited as a vendor so we decide to sell grab bags and made a "fool's gold" mining game for kids to go along with the frontier theme.

We met a lot of nice people and even signed up a new family. One young gentleman had so much fun learning about rocks he would take every chance he could from his family's booth to come hang out with us!

It was a beautiful day and all of us had a great time.
