Annual Member Celebration
Our Member Celebration gives us an opportunity to share our success stories with our members, hear from inspiring speakers, and honor the work of our volunteers. We have hosted this event in locations throughout the watershed, and loved hosting at the 2012 site: Oakhurst Community Garden in Decatur.
In 2012 we enjoyed live music from Gareth Asher & the Earthlings, catered food from Parsley’s Organic Catering, and guest speakers. We also welcomed three colleagues to talk about the Georgia Water Coalition's 2013 legislative priorities: Stephanie Stuckey Benfield of GreenLaw, Todd Edwards Association County Commissioners of Georgia, and William Perry of Common Cause.
We're extremely proud of the 2012 group of volunteers we recognized:
• Melinda Langston, city of Atlanta's Department of Watershed Management
• Charlie Freed, Atlanta Rowing Club
• Ryan Schultz, CRK intern
• Michelle Cash, Neighborhood Water Watch volunteer, Gainesville College
• Jarrett Clinton & Vicki Porter-Fink, Neighborhood Water Watch volunteers
• Amanda Mayberry, Neighborhood Water Watch volunteer
• Tom Wilson, photographer
Family-friendly opportunities included rain barrel painting activities, and a kids play area.
Stay tuned later this year for the 2013 location announcement! If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for this event for our members, check out sponsorship opportunities here or email Becca Klein at email@example.com or call her at (404) 352-9828, ext. 19.
