UWG STUDENTS VOLUNTEER AT THE CCVMP



Hey Violette

 The Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park Association was thrilled to host a group of wonderful UWG Students on Friday 9/8/2017 as part of their Community Service Day. They worked hard to refresh the sand in all the cracks in the brick walkways in the park - Come see how that spruced up the general appearance of our beautiful park THANKS UWG students.  

It is our privilege to host these young students, to be able to relate with them and share our mission with them.
- It's a "two edged sword" - They help us with sprucing up the park and we remind them of our country's past and explain that Freedom really is not  Free.

Maybe you could make a web post out of the three super pictures that Melanie made with the students.

LANDSCAPING IMPROVEMENTS AT THE PARK - THANK YOU SHERIFF LANGLEY AND CARROLL COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS

President Don Levans said, "You need to drive around the Round- A-bout and look up the hill at the Park!

Visitors to Carrollton approaching from toward Newnan will now be treated by an inviting and groomed Round About - NOW they can't miss the wonderful NEW view toward the Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park - MANY new plantings plus on Friday a crew covered the entire plantings in the park with new pine straw. Just don't see how anyone looking up could help but take the time to drive up the little hill and visit in this perfectly designed, constructed and maintained place showing respect to and for those who have served our nation. Thank you Board of Commissioners and Sheriff Langley getting rid of the old red bank!"
