Please mark your calendars and come to MIC's final public meeting of 2014 at the South Cobb Community Center, 620 Lions Club Drive in Mableton.  At this meeting, we will focus on education with speakers from the Mableton Alliance for Children and Schools (MACS) and the Harmony Leland Foundation.  We can all learn more about how we can support our local schools.


Also, we are going to have folks from Vinings Lake Church, Family Life Restoration Center, Sweetwater Mission, the Kiwanis Chapter of South Cobb, and the Boys & Girls Club of Mableton.  Each organization will talk to us about their work in the community. In addition, each one will talk to the audience how the residents of Mableton can help those amongst us who are in need.  Remember to bring a personal hygiene item that we are going to be collecting that night and giving to Sweetwater Mission.

Hooper-Turner House Threatened with Demolition
Monday, November 10th at 6pm

Please come to the Cobb County Historic Preservation Commission meeting on November Hooper Turner House new 10th to show your support for the historic Hooper-Turner House.  The City of Smyrna, which owns the house, is planning to demolish it.  But, first the matter goes before the Historic Preservation Commission.  Although their decision is not binding on the City of Smryna, MIC and the River Line Historic Area are hoping that a show of public support will save this important landmark from demolition. The Commission meeting is at 6pm at 100 Cherokee St., adjacent to the Marietta Square, in the 2nd floor Board of Commissioners meeting room.


Additionally, MIC is urging supporters of the house to attend the Smyrna City Council meeting on the Monday, November 17th at 7:30 pm at City Hall, 2800 King St, Smyrna.  We need folks to speak during the public comment period to urge the City to reconsider the vote to demolish the Hooper-Turner House.
