Forsyth County Chapter of the UGA Alumni Association to Host August 2 Kick Off & Freshman Send Off

With the 2018 football season and start of school right around the corner, anticipation is peaking for University of Georgia fans, parents and students on a lot of levels.

Seizing on this excitement, the Forsyth County Chapter of the UGA Alumni Association will host a gala reception for members and guests from 6:30 to 8:30 PM on Thursday, August 2. 

The venue for the event is the beautiful Reid Barn at 6844 Majors Road in Cumming. Come rain or shine - or even record breaking heat wave. The Reid Barn installed air conditioning this year to ensure the comfort of all their event guests.

Admission is $20 per person, payable upon entry. All children age 12 and under are admitted free, as are all incoming freshman and their families. Burgers, hot dogs, sodas, and tea are included.

Some details are still in the works, but one significant detail is confirmed. Jeff Sentell, author and sports writer for the Atlanta Journal & Constitution and DawgNation, will be on hand to entertain all with stories, observations and perhaps a prediction or two about the promising fall football season.

The evening will serve as an opportunity to congratulate and welcome rising freshmen and fire them up for their memorable years ahead. As a bonus, Mr. Sentell and perhaps other surprise guests will whet everyone's appetite for what promises to be an electrifying gridiron season.

So mark your calendars, buckle up your chinstraps and tell your Dawg friends to do the same.
