FLOWERY BRANCH - Gov. Nathan Deal will be in the Flowery Branch area Saturday to speak at the Georgia Republican Party's new South Hall office.<br />
Called a "Victory Center," it is located in the former Habersham Bank building at 5977 Spout Springs Road near Hog Mountain Road. Plans for the office were announced several weeks ago. (See earlier story. Link below.)<br />
Saturday will mark the official opening of the office. <br />
Deal is scheduled to speak at 11:00. <br />
GOP volunteers plan to spend the day Saturday canvassing homes in South Hall and making "get out the vote" calls from the new office.
For the third year in a row, a group of state officials, including the President of the University of Georgia, toured several agricultural interests in the state. Wednesday's Georgia Department of Agriculture and UGA Farm Tour focused on Northeast Georgia.
