Ladies & Gentlemen,
Please read the following two newspaper articles of recent events here in Fannin County. The governor stole our State flag and at the same time sold our heritage on the auction block of special interests. We are standing up against the governor of atlanta and a state flag created in secret, by deceit & lies, an abomination. We have a flag rally, the 22nd of May at 6:00 PM, if at all possible I hope that you will consider supporting our efforts here in Fannin County. For further details, see event calendar at www.spofga.org. Please pass this own to all who should be interested.
The first article is very special. A local government has, at least for now, officially removed the Jesse Jackson flag. Lets be prepared to defend their action when King Roy responds.
No Georgia flag will fly at McCaysville City Hall
Council removes flag from city hall, investigates flying old Georgia flag
No Georgia state flag will fly over the city of McCaysville for the next few weeks. Councilman Edward Massengale said he was offended by the new flag and the way it was adopted "because of the disrespect I think it has shown for the men who fought for Georgia."
After seeing the new state flag on the city hall flagpole, Massengale introduced a proposed resolution on May 8 governing display of the new and former state state flags on city property.
His motion which would have limited flying the new state flag only to official state holidays except Confederate Memorial Day died for lack of a second.
After discussion, however, the council instructed Clerk Nancy McGaskey to fly no state flag until the matter can be researched further.

22nd May - True Georgia State Flag Rally in Blue Ridge, Georgia
There will be a True Georgia flag rally at the Fannin County Courthouse on Tuesday 22 May in Blue Ridge at 6 PM. This rally is in support of our the local effort to adopt our True State flag as a County flag, and to let Commission Chairman Richard Volrath know that we do not appreciate his lying to us and making a mockery of our heritage. While indicating that the County Commission would consider our legitimate request, he quickly ordered 4 Jesse Jackson flags, so that they could fly over Fannin County during April, Confederate History Month. The Jesse Jackson rag was removed in broad daylight three times during the month. Mr. Volrath even lied by trying to state that they came from the SoS.
All are requested to bring their flags, and at the end of the rally follow us into the County Commission meeting. Your support is needed.
