Alpacas! Fluffy, Silky, Gentle and Useful... Alpaca is just now receiving recognition in North America thanks to the growing number of alpaca farms.

By Holly Williams and Sherry Ammen

Rarest of natural fibers, alpaca fleece is recognized worldwide as the elite, natural fiber. As soft as cashmere, warmer and lighter than wool, it comes in 22 natural colors. Alpaca fiber has no lanolin making it hypoallergenic and eliminating the reaction that some experience when wearing wool. Anything you can make with sheep wool or cashmere can be produced with alpaca to greater effect. The more consumers discover the wonderful properties of alpaca, the higher the demand for this fiber. Experiencing an alpaca sweater is one of those a-ha moments! Once you sleep with an alpaca filled comforter, you will wonder how you ever slept without it. Not limited to the basic sweater, but ranging from hand woven rugs to stylish coats, suit jackets and fun accessories like purses, hats and scarves, enthusiasts find endless possibilities.

Alpaca are camelids native to Peru, Chile and Bolivia and date back long before the rise of the Roman Empire. They are related to the camel and llama, but are much smaller and are raised primarily for their fiber. We currently have over 100,000 registered alpacas living on farms all across the country, including Georgia. Alpacas are shorn in the spring and can produce between 4 and 10 pounds of prime fleece. To further showcase the alpaca, the wonderful products made from their fleece and the farms raising them right here in Georgia, the Georgia Alpaca Association is hosting the Royal Alpaca Challenge. The event will be held at the International Horse Park, Conyers, Georgia, November 21-22, 2009. Breeders from all over the country and local youth will compete and vendors will be offering luxurious sweaters, coats, scarves, hats, rugs and yarn, all made from these incredibly soft, warm and silky creatures. For the knitters and fiber artists attending, a fun fiber arts educational display and fiber art demonstrations will greet you in the “Knitters Lounge� where you can relax and spin a yarn, learn or share new knitting, spinning or weaving techniques or buy fiber art supplies. The event will be open to the public Saturday, November 21 from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 22, from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. For more information please visit our website: www.royalalpacachallenge.com.

Featured Restaurant - Crossroads Café & Grill

When Crossroads Café & Grill opened nearly 3 years ago, it was a family affair from the start. Ken & Sheila Sipe and their daughter Stephanie Hurley who is the manager have over 35 years of food service experience. Their goal was to provide a casual, friendly atmosphere for customers to experience great food and great value. They certainly have been successful in meeting that goal because they have a loyal customer base they treat like family. Their customers enjoy the variety of great food as well as the friendly service. They prepare everything themselves with special care. “Wings and burgers are customer favorites” says Ken. It is no wonder these two items are so popular since these are no ordinary wings and burgers. The burgers are sizzling fresh hand-shaped, 5 ounce ground chuck. The wings are delicious and especially meaty since they are jumbo sized. They have a variety of hot and cold sandwiches and chicken tenders and one customer said “their curly fries are to die for”. My personal favorite is the 7” Philly Cheese steak sandwich, but their hot dogs are also wonderful and not like anyone else’s. To insure a well balanced menu they also offer great salads, appetizers and dessert as well as a Kids Menu. Now you can enjoy all this great food with your favorite beer or wine cooler which has been recently added. If you haven’t tried them out and experienced the consistency of their great food, exceptionally clean, cozy atmosphere and friendly service, you are missing a great treat. They have recently expanded their hours, so stop by and enjoy. They hope to soon expand into the space next door to have a place for customers to relax and watch football and other sports on a wide screen TV. They are located at the corner of Ga. Highway 20 and Flat Shoals Road in the front of the Big Lots Shopping Center. Ken says,”It’s all about family. Come let our family serve your family.” That’s a special invitation from the owner himself, what else do you need. Crossroads Café & Grille 1810 Ga Hwy 20 (Big Lots Shopping Center) • 770 602 1211

Purchasing from local merchants brings in extra sales tax revenue directly to Rockdale County! SPLOST Funds bring in an another $1 for every $100 spent which is used for community projects. If only 50% of Rockdale residents spend $50 per month with locally owned businesses that generates over $2,000,000 in gross local sales revenue. Approximately 60-70 cents out of every dollar spent with locally owned businesses is returned directly to the local economy through sales taxes, employment taxes, property taxes, etc. Supporting locally owned businesses insures diversity that means more choice for consumers. Locally owned businesses create jobs close to home which reduces commute distances and the associated costs. Strong local businesses create opportunities for new businesses that do business with existing businesses, fostering continued growth.

Honoring composers George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) and Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), the University of Georgia Choruses and Symphony Orchestra will perform two great choral masterpieces in the Monastery of the Holy Spirit’s historic Abbey Church. Handel’s Dixit Dominus, a virtuosic work for chamber choir, strings and continuo, is made up of several movements ranging from solo arias to full choruses, each with unique flashes of brilliance and moments of sheer beauty. Haydn’s Harmoniemesse, otherwise known as ‘Wind-Band’ Mass for its use of woodwinds and brass in the orchestra will feature the University Chorus, the largest chorus at UGA. The Concert also includes some short pieces of beautiful spirituals.

Admission is a Free-Will Offering. Visit our Gift Shop • Now open on Sundays

About Your County Government Hometown Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting Event Slated for Saturday, December 5!

The Annual City-County Hometown Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Event will be held on Saturday, December 5, in Olde Town Conyers. The event, co-sponsored by the city of Conyers, the Conyers Main Street Program and Rockdale County, is open to the public, free of charge. The city of Conyers sponsors the parade, which begins at Rockdale County High School (RCHS) at 4:30 p.m. The parade route travels from RCHS on Pine Log Road to Main Street, travels north to Milstead Avenue and concludes at the courthouse, where the County hosts the annual Tree Lighting Event. The Tree Lighting Event will begin immediately following the parade, at approximately 6:00 p.m. The parade will include traditional favorites like floats, marching bands and fire trucks, along with over 60 other entries. Mayor Randy Mills and Commission Chairman Richard Oden will be the grand marshals and the parade will conclude with Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will stop at the courthouse and stay for the tree lighting festivities. The tree lighting event will kick off the holiday season by lighting the 50’ live Christmas tree located in the courthouse parking lot. The program will also feature various singing and dance routines, and special appearances from city and county officials. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available throughout the event for photos. The Rockdale 4H Club will take a photo for a small fee, with proceeds benefiting Rockdale 4H. The Rockdale Fraternal Order of Firefighters will be selling snacks and hot drinks throughout the program, with all proceeds going towards helping families in need in the Conyers-Rockdale community. For further information regarding the parade, please contact the city of Conyers at 770-602-6206, and for details regarding the tree lighting, please contact Rockdale County at 770-278-7053. The ice skating rink in the Olde Town Pavilion will be open November 13 through February 21. For more information on ice skating or for current hours, visit www.icedays.com or call 770-602-6206.
