Pioneer Day @ Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge
Nov 17 all-day

Pioneer Day is Quickly Approaching!
November 17 – Mark Your Calendars

Folkston, GA…..The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge is busily preparing for the Pioneer Day Festival, hosted at the Chesser Island Homestead along the refuge’s Swamp Island Drive. Join us on Saturday November 17, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. for a fun-filled day of crafts, demonstrations, and bluegrass music.

Thanks to dedicated and hard-working volunteers, the Chesser Island Homestead has a newly-installed sugar cane grinder to demonstrate the process of grinding the sugar cane to extract juice for cane syrup. Come see the grinder and syrup shed in action, and purchase a jar of cane syrup to share with family and friends.

Children’s games and crafts, pioneer demonstrations, live animals, and educational displays will be available throughout the Chesser Island Homestead during the event. Visitors will also be able to tour the inside of the house and see the kitchen with authentic wood-burning stove in use. Activities and demonstrations will be going on throughout the day.

While on the refuge for Pioneer Day, be sure to stop by the Richard S. Bolt Visitor Center to learn more about the Okefenokee habitats and wildlife and to watch the award-winning film. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the picnic area, then walk some of the refuge’s hiking trails. Plan to spend the day enjoying this beautiful season in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.

Exchange Club Meeting @ Okefenokee Fair Association
Nov 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

 

Exchange, America’s Premier Service Club, working to make our communities better places to live. Exchange’s Mission Statement was updated in January, after approval by the National Board of Directors. The concise phrasing more effectively communicates our mission to members, potential members and the general public.

Core Values

Each member of Exchange holds near to their heart three core values – Family, Community and Country. Commitment to Family is interpreted not only as one’s own family needs, but also those of all American families. Strengthening families, with a focus on youth, is addressed in many ways through Exchange’s Programs of Service. Commitment to the Community where an Exchangite resides is the focal point for each club’s efforts. Exchange is unique as a service organization in that it has the flexibility to structure projects that target the specific needs of a particular geographic location, rather than being restricted to a certain cause. Commitment to Country was born in the aftermath of World War II, a time of unquenchable patriotism. Exchangites are proud to join veterans and other civic groups in promoting Americanism as the rich blessing of democracy and freedom, and in educating today’s youth to cherish its values. These three values are translated into actions every day to bring about positive results through the work of hundreds of clubs and tens of thousands of dedicated Exchange Club members every day.
