I had never read Georgia Magazine before [until
the July 2020 issue]. I flipped through and saw the trivia contest and said, "Why not?!" What a great way to
encourage people to take time and read. Love the
magazine. It's super informative!
This was fun, and I learned a few new things
about Georgia. Thanks!

My husband and I enjoy Georgia Magazine each
month. Thank you for the great job you do in presenting information about places, businesses and people-and the trivia contest. Of course, I enjoy the recipes featuring Georgia products.
The cover of the August 2020 issue is breathtaking. Keep up the good work.

From THE EDITOR
October is National Co-op Month,
and in this issue we feature submissions
from electric co-op members, expressing
appreciation for the services their co-ops
provide.
Electrical co-ops are independent,
not-for-profit utilities, owned by the
customers they serve. Besides providing
reliable electrical power, Georgia's 41 electric membership cooperatives (EMCs) are
invested in their communities, giving their
time, money and expertise to support local
economies.
Turn to page 16 to learn how Georgia's
EMCs are connecting with their customers
and why so many members are saying
"I love my co-op."
If you're looking for a daytrip
destination this fall, take your cue from
Columbus' namesake, Christopher
Columbus, and set out to explore what
Georgia's second-largest city has to offer.
If you enjoy the arts, you can take in a
world-class performance at the Springer
Opera House. Or, if interstellar exploration
is more your thing, visit the Coca-Cola
Space Science Center. No matter what you
choose to do, you'll never be far from the
Chattahoochee River, which bisects the
city and provides the largest urban
whitewater course in the world.
For even more to see and experience
in Columbus, turn to page 28 and discover
how you, too, can "do amazing."
Horses and history characterize
Cumberland Island, Georgia's largest and
southernmost barrier island. Accessible
only by boat, Cumberland offers visitors a
glimpse of the past, particularly the
gilded-age era in which its iconic Dungeness Mansion was built, along with the
chance to see the Atlantic coast's only truly
feral horse herd.
In fact, these two aspects of the island
are often in close proximity, as the ruins
and grounds of Dungeness, which burned
in 1959, are the most likely places to spot
Cumberland's horses.
Read "Wild at heart," starting on page
22, to learn more about the island's equine
inhabitants and its storied history.
Enjoy!
