Dixie Jewels Insulator Club Summer Swap Meet hosted by Tom, Mike and Casey Herron, will be held Saturday, August 20th, 2022 from 8:00am-3:00pm in beautiful Toccoa, Georgia. The swap will be held at the Mitchell Allen Memorial Hall at the Historic Toccoa Train Depot, 160 N Alexander St, Toccoa, GA 30577, located at the historic Toccoa Train Depot and right next door to the Currahee Military Museum. The Toccoa Depot was originally built in 1915 and is located beside the Southern Railroad which remains very active to this day. The Toccoa Depot has been restored to its original appearance in 1940 and the museum showcases the history of Toccoa and Stephens County, Georgia, along with many artifacts detailing the lives and experiences of the men in the 506th Airborne Infantry Regiment who trained for combat missions at nearby Camp Toccoa, made famous by the hit HBO miniseries, “Band of Brothers”. Tours of the museum will be arranged for those interested at minimal cost. The depot has also added a viewing platform for those who wish to do some railfanning! Around 15+ tables will be available, so please contact Mike Herron before the swap meet to reserve your sales table. If all those tables are spoken for, plan to bring your own table. There is lots of room in the meeting hall and there will be a great assortment of insulators for sale. Admission is free and there is no charge to set up a sales table if you are a club member. Non-club members will need to pay $5 for each sales table. Please see our treasurer, Dave Collins, prior to setup. Lunch will be provided for club members ONLY and they are asked to bring a covered dish, dessert or drinks to complement the noon meal. Mark your calendars now for a terrific day of awesome insulators and fellowship in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia.
