We Are Back! The GEC 1st Friday Lunch is moving back to the old I-HOP location, now the Sunrise Dinner. Bobby Howard has warmly invited the GEC back to the newly remodeled private dining room at the Sunrise Diner! We have some interesting speakers lined up…


GEC 1st Friday Lunch, January 5, 11:15, Sunrise Dinner, the Sunrise Diner at 5031 New Jesup Highway, Brunswick. Meet Rick Frey, the St Marys Riverkeeper. Winding between Georgia and Florida over 130-miles from the Okefenokee Swamp to the Atlantic Ocean, the St. Marys River is scenic and historic. The dark waters of the St. Marys River are nearly pristine and relatively free from commercial impact. Rick’s job is more challenging than that of a typical Riverkeeper because of the different rules and regulations governing waterways in both states, as well as traveling to two state capitals while serving as an advocate of the river.


GEC 1st Friday Lunch, February 2, 11:15, Sunrise Diner (former I-HOP) 5031 New Jesup Hwy., Brunswick. Going Hog Wild! Kara Day, biologist from GADNR Wildlife Resources Division's Game Management, will discuss the dangers caused by invasive species and what they and other agencies are doing to combat them.
