Please STOP sending me your paper. I've sent multiple requests. I never signed up for your paper. It's the year 2022, I don't need sacks of outdated paper constantly thrown in my yard.
Yesterday, the LJC Adult Program Class of 2022 "Little Free Library" Project Team had their first Ribbon Cutting at Morton Park. It was very exciting to see their hard work come together. Their project entailed the installation and dedication of seven chartered Little Free Libraries throughout the city of Johns Creek at various locations including parks, elementary schools, and Emory Johns Creek Hospital to provide 24/7 access to books for local area children and families. Team members Cassandra Littlejohn, Brian O’Connor, Deb Powell, Richard Wright, Lindsey Acciarito, and Vanessa Payne have raised approximately $8000 from the local community to support this initiative. If you missed yesterday's gathering, the next ribbon cutting is scheduled for Thursday, May 12 at 2pm at Emory Johns Creek Hospital followed by Findley Oaks Elementary School installation on Monday, May 16th. We appreciate the continued support of the Johns Creek Community as a whole and would like to say thank you to our generous sponsors and partners: • Emory Johns Creek Hospital • Nakia Mattis • Emory Johns Creek Hospital Imaging Department • Kathryn Albright • Alex Almanza • Optech (Paige Alexander) • Lafferty Animal Clinic #serviceinaction #JohnsCreek #LJC
