The Annual Meeting that was postponed from last month will be the first event of the evening. It will be followed by:
A VALENTINE TALE: The Lumpkin County Historical Society President and local storyteller, Larry Scott, will share, “A Valentine Tale – The Life of Amy Trammell, Auraria’s Lady Gold Miner and the Man She Loved.” Based on her autobiography, “Yarns of Gold From Auraria,” it is the story of Bill and Amy Trammell’s thirty-five years of prospecting, panning and ever seeking the mother lode in and around Auraria, Georgia. The yarns are filled with humor, love, pathos, disappointments, and joy. You will be inspired to laughter and tears as the two hunted for the ever elusive gold, sharing their victories and defeats.
The public is cordially invited to attend, and especially friends and relatives who knew the Trammells are invited to share their memories of Amy and Bill, two of the last of Lumpkin County’s full-time gold miners.
