This past weekend the Georgia Parent Club celebrated their 3rd annual "Georgia On My Mind" Night at USAFA.
Waffle House, a Georgia company, provided all of the food feeding 250 cadets, 26 parent volunteers and 20 additional individuals. All of the food was prepared fresh on site and the menu included: scrambled eggs with cheese, grits, hashbrowns, biscuits, sausage, bacon and a waffle station with various toppings to include peanut butter, whipped cream and chocolate chips. Pearson Farms, another Georgia company, provided buttermilk pecan pies for dessert.
They also provided the cadets with a selection of Blue Bunny ice cream products to accompany the pecan pies. Sweet tea, lemonade and bottled water were the refreshments for the evening.
Princess Wallace, a local DJ, was on hand to provide the Georgia Cadets and their guests with music and entertainment. She and her son generated excitement throughout the evening and even taught the cadets several line dances. The Georgia Parent Club even went as far as to ask their Cadets to provide them with their favorite songs when they RSVP'd and Princess made certain that the playlist for the night included all of the requested songs.
