Please Join Us! Last weekend we asked you to 'Save the Date' for a Town Hall Meeting discussing Forsyth County Governance, hosted by Rep. Mike Dudgeon. This week we are asking you to not just save the date, but to please find some way in your calendar to attend!!!
The folks at Sharon Springs Alliance know how hard it is to work one more thing into the family calendar. We all have school, work, and extra-curricular activities like Soccer, Lacrosse, Cheer, Dance, Football, Baseball, Church, Scouts, etc... and we know it isn't easy. But the October 14th Town Hall is very important to the future of the community and your family's way of life.
Here are the details: Town Hall Meeting Forsyth County Governance; Tuesday October 14th, 20147:00 PM - 8:30 PM Lambert High School Cafeteria Please join Representative Dudgeon for a town hall forum to discuss issues important to Forsyth County and the state of Georgia. All topics are welcome, though there will be a focus on county governance issues including the makeup of the county commission and the concept of a city of Sharon Springs. If you know in advance you want to speak, feel free to sign up now at email@example.com

“Serving on the Board of Directors of Family Haven is a great way to help, as a business owner, bring about awareness of the problem faced by abused women and men and their children,” explained Marie Dinsmore. “Along with my colleagues from various businesses and community organizations, we are able to learn more about the needs of individuals facing abuse while putting our resources and knowledge together for the benefit of those we serve.”
In collaboration with other organizations throughout Forsyth County and Metro Atlanta, Dinsmore hopes the cycle of family violence will someday be broken. In the meantime, she joins the efforts of the organization’s Board of Directors in their quest for funding, advocacy and assistance to those in need.
