What You Do Today Can Make a Big Difference 100 Years From Now

 People often say, "This won't matter a hundred years from now." While it's true that a lot of things won't matter, many things will. Keeping a record of important events is a must. Otherwise, younger generations will not know how things came to be. During my 36 years of being the Ball Ground city clerk, I've referred back to minutes of previous council meetings many times to learn why things were done the way they were. Reviewing past records provides me with a better understanding and respect for those who laid the groundwork to make our city what it is today. If not for the men and women who had the forethought to carefully plan for future generations, our city would surely suffer during difficult times.

Due to years of careful planning, Ball Ground was able to successfully navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Though local businesses struggled in the beginning of the pandemic, 99% of them made it through these trying times.

The building industry is at an all-time high in Ball Ground. People have discovered that "Ball Ground is the Place To Be." Visitors and residents love the small town, "Mayberry" type of atmosphere. Mayor A.R. Roberts and the city council have striven to make Ball Ground a walkable, pedestrian friendly town where sidewalks lead to our downtown, parks, school, and Ball Ground Botanical Garden.

Though the pandemic caused the City of Ball Ground to cancel its outdoor concerts and events, it did not take away the Independence Day fireworks display, which is one of the largest in north Georgia. This year's fireworks display as well as other outdoor events will be bigger and better than ever.

Whatever it is you are looking for, you can find it in Ball Ground. And remember — what you do today really can make a difference 100 years from now. So, start planning for the future. Be prepared. You never know what life is going to throw at you. Make memories, snap a picture or two along the way for future generations to enjoy, and reflect on what it was like in the "good old days."
