It’s that time of year again when the Cosby Junior Beta Club members hit the road for their annual trip.

Club sponsor Glenda Henderson always makes sure that the trips are educational as well as fun and a reward for a year of hard work by the club members.

From the sound of things, every single minute is jam packed with activities designed to educate and entertain. Henderson submitted the following account of this year’s trip and the accompanying photos.


COSBY—Several members of the Cosby Junior Beta Club once again ended their year with a trip. This year they traveled to Stone Mountain and Atlanta, Georgia on May 16-18.

At Stone Mountain, the travelers enjoyed a train ride, a five-mile excursion around the park. They took the Summit Skyride to the top of the mountain, and one group hiked down the mountain.

All enjoyed the view of the Confederate Memorial carved into the side of the stone mountain. The carving depicts three Confederate soldiers from the Civil War and Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, and Confederate President Jefferson Davis. The club members also enjoyed a 4-D movie “Ice Age—No Time For Nuts” and visiting a century-old grist mill.

The second day found the travelers in Atlanta, where they visited CNN Studios, Suntrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves, Olympic Park, and World of Coca Cola. There they enjoyed sampling Coca Cola products from around the world.

They also visited the Atlanta Aquarium where they saw many species of exotic life, including beluga whales, dolphins, sea horses, and whale sharks. One of the highlights of the day was a sea lion show.

Their final day was spent at Six Flags Over Georgia where they enjoyed roller coaster rides and many other activities. After a busy day at Six Flags, they headed home, tired but filled with many happy memories.
