Metro Atlanta was once again the setting for Braves Country Caravan.
Our first stop was at Wildfire restaurant for a luncheon and Q&A with some of our season ticket holders and was emceed by Braves broadcaster Don Sutton. The panel included John Schuerholz, Bobby Cox, Brian McCann, Brian Jordan, Jordan Schafer, Jo Jo Reyes and Mike Dunn. The food was delicious, the questions were plentiful and everyone had a good time.
From the restaurant just outside of the Perimeter Mall, the bus headed towards Decatur for our next stop at the Atlanta Veterans Administration Hospital. The group split in two and visited several floors of rooms to say hi and thank the veterans for their service.
Many in the Braves group were moved by the stories that were told and many of the veterans were glad to listen to some of the stories told by the Braves.
The final destination was Publix in Suwanee. A huge crowd came out to see their favorite Braves as they signed for a little over two hours. Thank you Braves fans for standing on line on this cold Monday!
Tomorrow the Braves Country Caravan is headed to Knoxville and Chattanooga, so check out braves.com/caravan to see where you can see them.
