  • I grew up in Chattanooga... I traveled from Atlanta to participate in the big 9 celebration... I really did enjoy being there among people that I went to church, school , neighborhoods... I think it could be a great celebration and so many good memories were stirred up... growing up was very nice I think a lot of the families that we grew up with their parents had so much pride and they were very hard to give their children all they need it... please keep it going and make it better each year...
  • I had a great time today. Everyone was so helpful and nice. It was a great day to come together as one.
