    The Park is on the Trail of Tears. And we just had to pay more, it will seat 100 and it has bathrooms, a Fireplace, and a big Playground.

    I just wanted to let you know that the Social place has changed this year. It is just down the road toward my house on 64 highway. And everyone should find it okay. It is a State Park and we are in Shelter number 1. The first one on the left as you go in.
