Post office employees, members of the GFWC Lilburn Woman's Club (LWC) and a handful of other community volunteers took time out of their busy week to give the entrance to the Lilburn Post Office an inexpensive facelift.
The new Lilburn Postmaster Jeff Keever was joined by his brother David and several other employees who all agreed that this needed to be done for some time, they just needed someone to pull a plan together and take charge.
That's when Susan Hendricks, the LWC Conservation Co-Chairman heard about the project and starting asking around for volunteers and materials that could be used to kick off the project. After locating a landscaping company outside of Lilburn that was giving away free pine straw (unbaled) the plan started coming together.
"What we've accomplished on this first day was awesome" stated Hendricks, "but we still have a long way to go and we will need additional volunteers to come out and help us continue the effort on Saturday morning."
The group will be back out at the Post Office this coming Saturday morning to continue to prune, edge, trim, plant, etc. If you are interested in lending a hand, just bring your gloves and clippers or other appropriate garden tools and be there this Saturday, June 23rd from 9:30am to 11:30am.
