It is with great sadness that we share the loss of one of our founders, our generous owner and hostess at Lily Creek Lodge, and our dear friend, Sharon Bacek. Sharon will be extremely missed.
She, and her husband Don, were great champions of literacy and founded the Dahlonega Literary Festival more than a decade ago. Sharon was a “secret sauce” person always working behind the scenes making life better for culture, tourism and an enriched heart in Lumpkin County. Her value and spirit cannot be measured.
For sixteen years she generously provided the Featured Authors of the Dahlonega Literary Festival free lodging at her Lilly Creek Lodge. Sharon loved literature, the Festival, and meeting the authors and the authors loved having such a wonderful place to stay and socialize.
WE MISS YOU SHARON!
