Fayette Senior Services ~ Delivering a Difference

Parents and grandparents rely more on their families and friends for assistance as they age. For many Fayette County seniors, these loved ones include the 100-plus volunteers from the county Meals on Wheels program.

Each year, the Fayette Senior Services team delivers over 50,000 nutritious meals to hundreds of homebound seniors across Peachtree City and the county. These friendly volunteer faces provide a warm smile to our aging residents, while also checking each day to see if they're well.

It takes $500,000 to run Meals on Wheels each year. Fayette Senior Services supplies the meals, free of charge, thanks to a partnership with Open Hand Atlanta. Still, to go the extra mile for those in need, donations and volunteers are a must.

To learn more about how you can support Fayette County Meals on Wheels, please email mlanier@fayss.org.

Peachtree City Police Hold Active Shooter Training

Peachtree City's parents learned a new skill from the police that we all hope they'll never need to use.

Sergeant Brown with the Peachtree City Police Department presented a course at McIntosh High School on what parents should do if confronted with an active shooter event. 

Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events, or CRASE, is a class developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University. CRASE provides strategies, guidance, and a plan for surviving an active shooter event. More than 900,000 people nationwide have received CRASE training since the program's debut in 2004.

Other Georgia cities that previously hosted CRASE classes include Columbus, Gainesville, and Villa Rica. While this training was only open to parents of McIntosh High students, stay up to date on future training by signing up for notifications by clicking here.

Cub Scouts meet city's top leaders

Nearly two dozen Cub Scouts from packs 75, 201, and 409 visited Mayor Kim Learnard and Mayor Pro Tem Mike King at Peachtree City City Hall last week.  But these weren't your ordinary Cub Scouts.

These scouts are currently working on their Arrow of Light badge. The Arrow of Light is the highest rank in Cub Scouting, and prepares a Webelos Scout to join a BSA troop.

Mayor Learnard and Mayor Pro Tem Mike King talked with the 5th graders and answered questions about how our local government works.  The visit left a lasting impression on our future Peachtree City leaders.

More than one scout said, "I want to be mayor when I grow up!," according to Den Leader Jason Bushmire.
