Mark your calendars for the Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games for this weekend, June 9th and 10th! Each year the Scottish Festival is started off on Friday with the Kilted Golf Classic at Butternut Creek Golf Course and the Ceilidh Dinner. Saturday and Sunday follow and are filled with the sounds of bagpipes, drums and the colorful display of flags and tartans throughout the lovely setting along the creek at Meeks Park in Blairsville, GA.   So Many Clan Tents…What is a Clan? The Gaelic word Clan means family or tribe.  Each clan has its own tartan which is worn in a kilt or scarf and members are fiercely loyal to the group.

Thinking of moving to the Blairsville Georgia area and are concerned about medical facilities?  Don’t worry, you’re not alone.  One of the first questions many people ask us is “what kind of medical facilities are here”?

According to an article in this week's North Georgia News, Lake Nottely reached a level of 1,768 feet at midnight on March 7, a level that it normally wouldn't reach until at least mid-April under normal conditions. The top of the gates at Nottely Dam is 1780 feet. The reason for the rapid rise in water levels ids due to a mechanical problem with a broken generator that is used to draw down water. TVA  (Tennessee Valley Authority) is currently using a smaller generator until the large one is repaired. Additional information can be obtained by viewing the article at www.nganews.com. Summer is just around the corner, so higher water levels should make for a gorgeous and full lake just in time for boating season!
