The CPWC gathered with our new neighbors on August 27th to celebrate our choosing this community to call home.  On our nametags we included a place we have lived in the past which revealed that we have traveled near and far to get here; including, Germany, France, Brazil, Italy, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey, Minnesota, California, New York, and neighborhoods around Atlanta.  We were fortunate to have Commissioner Bob Ott and Community Association President Joe Gavalis present a neighborhood update on new restaurants, police representation, and traffic news.  
cpcaCPCA Update

The CPCA is your neighborhood organization and your representative to the county.
We have been getting new volunteers to be block captains to be a conduit between the organization and the neighbors. They have been helping us update our CPCA database with the best contact numbers and new neighbors.

If you have a new neighbor, contact Janie Kissling, so she can update the database.  If you are willing to be a block captain, let Janie know also and she will give your information to Judy Winchell.

We have held up our directory publishing to ensure new information is included.  The directory will probably be out in October around the time of our annual meeting and our newsletter. If you have any news you want the CPCA to consider for the newsletter, let Janie know.
