Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful eNewsletter
When it comes to running a non-profit organization, fundraising is a necessary part of annual planning.  You will find information about our fall fundraisers in this newsletter.
Our organization runs on a shoestring, but you'd never know it by all that we do.  The programs, projects, and educational opportunities offered through KALB exist because our staff and volunteers love what we do.
KALB has two exciting fundraisers coming up.  Both are longstanding events in Athens.  Please consider being part of one or both of these opportunities to support the work of this great organization.
I hope you enjoy this newsletter.  Please pass it on to someone who may not receive it.
Thank you,

Lynne Hart
Executive Coordinator
