January 21st is the date for the 30th Annual Rabun Rendezvous at the Dillard House in Rabun, Georgia. Social will start at 5 o’clock PM. Folks will start gathering to “pick the pig” and enjoy the rocking chairs on the porch of the Conference Center. There will be snack trays of cheeses, crackers, veggies with dips and fruits. Soft drinks and ice will be available. If you want something stronger, better bring it yourself. (BYOB) There will also be a fire inside to warm your buns. The Foxfire Boys, with their famous Blue Grass Music, will also begin at 5 pm. Then about 6:30 we will dine on fish, chicken and pork with all the side dishes and desserts that have made the Dillard House so famous. It is a serve yourself buffet, so you will not leave hungry. The cost will be $33 for adults. $25 for those under the age of 15. Cash, checks, VISA or MasterCard. We don’t do advanced tickets, just pay at the door.
