We brought Santa into Lawrenceville last night for the lighting of the tree. Let me tell you, he’s the real deal to. I even pulled his beard to check. You can learn more about Santa at www.georgiasanta.com
Santa will be back in Lawrenceville on December 4th and 5th.
The next few weeks promise to be busy for Georgia Trolley Services. You can see us Thanksgiving night on the square in Downtown Lawrenceville for the lighting of the tree. What we will be doing is a secret, but suffice it to say my Christmas list will be in good hands by the end of that night. We are also giving trolley rides in Lawrenceville on December 4 and 5th. http://www.gwinnettcounty.com/cgi-bin/gwincty/egov/ep/gcbrowse.do?channelId=-59220&pageTypeId=536880236
Also on December 5th we will be doing the founders day parade in Johns Creek.
December 13 we are doing a tour of homes in Avondale Estates.
December 19th is the last weekend for Weddings for the year for us. For all of you who have gotten married this year and ridden with us a big thank you and congratulations. We hope we helped to make your day special.
Looking for a Christmas Eve service to attend. The church we provide shuttle services to Grace Fellowship Church is having their service at the Gwinnett Arena. http://www.christmasevegwinnett.com/
New Years Eve come celebrate in Downtown Lawrenceville and ride the trolley to town from GJAC. It’s a family friendly event. Fireworks at midnight.
And then to start the New Year we have a wedding in Downtown Lawrenceville.
During this holiday period please remember those whose needs are greater than ours. Myself I will be volunteering for my 13th year (9 of those at the Dekalb County Jail) cooking for Hosea Feed the Hungry. http://www.hoseafeedthehungry.com/
Our 2010 price list will be as follows:
#350 for the first 3 hours ($110 per hour, plus tax). For weddings the hours can be split before the ceremony and after the ceremony. Each hour after the first 3 is $95 per hour plus tax.
A $100 cash security deposit is required for any food or beverage served while on the trolley. A 20% tip (of the non tax portion) is required on any charter in which alcohol is served. The tip may be paid out of the security deposit if no damage or clean up is required.
On all other charters a 15 % tip of the non tax portion of the charter is suggested when good service is provided.
With the exception of events taking place in January or February of 2010 we will start taking reservations on January 1st, 2010. If you have any questions please feel free to call us or contact us via e-mail.
Two incidents involving motor coach buses have been in the news of late. The first involved what was labeled an arson fire of a bus, done reportedly by it’s owner. However the media reported the wrong person as being the owner, since the new owner had never removed the previous owners markings from the bus.
The second incident occurred this past weekend when a bus charted by Morehouse college ran off the interstate. It was reported that a car may have cut off the bus. The fact remains the charter bus company was listed on the Public Service Commission web site as being an illegal bus provider.
Although injuries occurred in the one accident, no one was seriously hurt. Once again we must stress the importance of knowing your vendor. Don’t think it can effect you? Ask yourself who the attorneys will call when they find out the trolley you rented didn’t have insurance, our current vehicle inspection?
Although we’d love to have your business, if we can’t do the job then use one of the two other licensed trolley companies in Atlanta, we’ll be happy to refer you to one of the other two.
