What do cooler weather, leaves changing color, kids back in school and Southeastern KFC's meeting all have in common??? They are all signs of Fall, of course!! Make sure you mark your calendars right now for Southeastern KFC Franchisee Association's Fall Meeting taking place November 12 - 15, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia at our Fall location, the beautiful Crowne Plaza Ravinia. Plans are definitely in the works for a fantastic meeting so be sure you make your plans to get in on the excitement.
At this meeting we will be pledging our help and support for all victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. At the meeting, we will collect personal supplies and items for one of our local (Danville, VA) disaster relief organizations, God's Pit Crew (www.godspitcrew.org). This organization does what they call "Blessing Buckets" filled with items designed to comfort the individual or family (toothbrushes, washcloths, wet wipes, sanitizer, etc.) Here's what goes in a Blessing Bucket:
Please consider bringing these items to donate at our meeting. If you would prefer to give a cash donation instead or in addition to the personal items, there is a place while you are registering to do so, or you can bring your cash or checks to the meeting. We will be collecting throughout the meeting.
This Fall's meeting will be hosted at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia. You are responsible for making your own hotel reservations.

TopGolf is a premier sports entertainment venue offering games and entertainment for all ages even if you don't play golf! The Topgolf games can be played by all ages and skill levels, and the microchipped golf balls score themselves, providing players with instant feedback on each shot's accuracy and distance. Players aim for 11 giant dartboard-like targets on a 215-yard outfield. The farther the shot goes and the closer to the pin, the more points the player receives. Each Topgolf venue features climate-controlled hitting bays for year-round play, food, beverage, music and hundreds of HDTVs on which various sports games are shown, such as football, rugby and boxing as well as golf.
