I am back after a short hiatus!

The 2008 Volunteer For A Better Sandy Springs, sponsored by Leadership Sandy Springs, was a huge success. We had over 650 people turn out to give a few hours to help our community of Sandy Springs. Last, year we had 380 volunteers and ten sites thoughout the city. The weather was good and the rain held off until the evening.

The volunteers gave over 1900 hours back to their community. According to national statistics, a volunteer hour in Georgia is worth $18.77. On that measure, VBSS gave back over $35,000 in volunteer value. We painted, cleaned, entertained, pruned weeds, organized, etc, through out the city. Everyone who participated received a colorful t-shirt and a lunch sponsored by Arby’s. This was my second and final year as chairman of the event. I feel I left it in better shape than when I got it.

Here is the article from the Sandy Springs Neighbor before the event.
