Lake Lanier Association members and guests outside at Gainesville MarinaMore than 500 people turned out in mid-April for the Lake Lanier Association member celebration at Gainesville Marina. It included a vendor fair, food from Skogie’s and music by Gina Gailey.

“People are just so ready to get outside in a safe space and see each other again, and this was the perfect opportunity,” said Jennifer Flowers, executive director of the association. “To have this kind of participation during the pandemic was a good way to celebrate LLA and Lake Lanier.” The vendor fair included boating organizations, business members of the association and other marine-related groups. “A big thank you to Tony and Heather of Skogie’s for the amazing food,” Flowers said. Shelia Davis Group was the event’s signature sponsor.
