What PLAIN is up to now

As voted on in May, PLAIN ​is shifting to less events and more service oriented programs. We will still have our signature monthly pancake breakfasts but will focus on service. What kind of service? A couple of things we have talked about doing or expanding are: more neighborhood caring and sharing; collecting food, clothing and backpacks for school kids at the monthly breakfasts; adopt a planter; trash pick up, etc.  We welcome your suggestions for other activities.  Also let us know if you can help carry out any of these activities.
At the bottom of this post is a list of activities that other neighborhoods received grants for from the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta. This is the group from whom we received a grant for the beach chairs and planters and we plan to ask them for another, larger grant in future. Please take a look at this list, let us know any other suggestions you may have for our future grant request and also let us know if there is something you would like to lend a hand to.
Also if you haven’t joined PLAIN or renewed your membership we invite you to do so. See the links below.
Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon.
