On Tuesday, March 21, Cobb County voters went to the polls to decide on whether the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST V) to fund capital improvements should continue for an additional five years. With 25,106 “YES” (73.85%) votes counted versus the 8,888 (26.15%) “NO” votes cast, the one penny tax was approved.

The SPLOST V revenue will help construct hundreds of new classrooms, increase safety and security, and upgrade technology throughout the district. “I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the voters of Cobb County for their continued support of our school district,” said Superintendent Chris Ragsdale. “SPLOST V will provide needed resources to support our schools and staff in reaching our goal of student success.

SPLOST V will provide replacement facilities at East Valley, Harmony Leland and King Springs Elementary Schools, and a new Smyrna area middle school.

Expenditures under SPLOST V include the following:

New/Replacement Facilities                        $165,000,000

Additions/Modifications                               $206,000,000

Infrastructure/Individual School Needs    $103,000,000

Safety, Security, and Support                      $150,022,000

Academic/Technology                                  $173,000,000

Every one of Cobb’s 114 schools will see improvements through Ed-SPLOST V (2019-2023). Check with your school principal or visit www.cobbk12.org/splost/SPLOSTVNotebook_Complete.pdf  for a current list of planned projects.

Are you glad the Ed-SPLOST V passed?

The Flourish Network Launching in East Cobb
New Networking Monthly Meet-Up for Women

 

The Flourish Network is Metro Atlanta’s fastest growing women’s networking organization, and is launching a new chapter in East Cobb. In less than 24 months, The Flourish Network has grown to have 20 Chapters throughout the Metro Atlanta area. The Flourish Network offers a safe loving environment for women to come and grow in an environment that is free of competiveness, aggressiveness, and hard-selling approaches. The focus of The Flourish Network is to see women reach their full potential in every area of their lives. The Flourish Network prides itself in growing organically, which means they do not attend other networking groups to gather their attendees. The organization gives credit to their success based on doing things differently than what most people are accustomed to in regards to other networking environments.

 

The new chapter leaders for the East Cobb location are Stacey Stallings and Sue McQueen. The first chapter meet-up will be held on April 11, 2017 @ 7:00 p.m.  Location details for the new chapter, along with information regarding registration and the chapter leaders, can be found at: www.comeflourishwithus.com/marietta-east.html

 

In addition to offering monthly meet-ups at various chapters throughout Metro Atlanta, the organization also offers Social Mixers that accommodate women in all walks of life. The Flourish Network is expected to add more chapters, social events, and other venues for women to “FLOURISH” in new areas both within and beyond Georgia in 2017. While The Flourish Network is still in the planning stages for upcoming chapter launches and events, there are a wide variety of scheduled meet-ups and events available on The Flourish Network website at www.comeflourish.com

 

Beyond providing a selfless and loving atmosphere for women to connect and grow, The Flourish Network has a passion for giving back. The Flourish Network supports women transitioning from domestic violence situations, organizations that bring awareness and relief to women and girls in both sex trafficking and the sex industry, as well as the WellStar Foundation to provide free mammograms for uninsured women.

 

The company motto is: Come, FLOURISH with us!

Since it began 90 years ago, the Circle for Children has organized an annual gala to raise funds for its children-related beneficiaries. Many members of the Circle for Children resides in East Cobb. Their president, Heather Rees, who was East Cobber’s Mother of the Year in 2016, resides in East Cobb; the Gala Chair, Elaine LaMontagne and Auction Chairs, Donna Shafer and Polly Hogue reside in East Cobb.

ARTitude will serve as the grand finale for a year celebrating the art of giving. A festive cocktail party and silent auction will precede a seated dinner with artistic touches and fabulous entertainment, including the iconic comedian Jerry Farber and energizing Platinum Band Atlanta. This uptown funky affair will be held on Saturday, March 25, at Mason Fine Art, a modern, urban gallery in Atlanta. ARTitude will highlight a menu of arts in cuisine, humor, fine art, fashion, music and dance. The very name ARTitude brings together the concept of art with attitude and gratitude.

East Cobber Elaine LaMontagne, Circle VP and Gala Chair, explains, “Arts touch our lives in intriguing, delicious and entertaining ways – they enhance our very existence. The Circle is dedicating the 2017 fundraising year to celebrating the arts which ultimately includes the art of giving, the essence of our organization’s purpose. This year’s gala, ARTitude, will help us raise money with sophisticated sass!”

In an effort to financially and personally aid the most severely vulnerable and needy children in Georgia, the Circle will once again support the Center for Children & Young Adults (CCYA). CCYA provides a safe and nurturing environment with comprehensive services for youth who have been abused and abandoned. The multi-purpose campus offers a residential therapeutic setting with 47 beds, annually serving approximately 120 youth in need of rescue, shelter, treatment, care and guidance. The Circle also continues to fund scholarships and special projects of its original beneficiary, Tallulah Falls School.

A Patron Party Evening for sponsors and patrons will include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Fox Theatre and tickets to Broadway in Atlanta’s presentation of The Bodyguard.

For further information about ARTitude call 404-295-9510 or visit www.circle4children.org.
