The Lilburn Chick-fil-A last month provided sandwiches for the Lilburn Co-op, and Providence Christian students distributed them. This week it's providing 500 gift certificates for free kids' meals.
Like many entrepreneurs Truett Cathy had a good idea that succeeded when he invented, as their promotions stress, not the chicken, but the chicken sandwich. I have been a Chick-fil-A customer since arriving in Atlanta fifty years ago. Truett Cathy is one of the most charitable men in the country. I like the fact that Chick-fil-A isn’t open on Sunday. I wish we would all go back to simpler times. I don’t know what their recipe is for preparing chicken but it tantalizes my taste buds. My family and I have savored several thousand Chick-fil-A sandwiches over the years. If another gentleman in the chicken restaurant business was a Colonel, Truett Cathy is a General. I spoke with a couple managers in my favorite Chick-fil-A restaurant in …

Moms Talk: Why not celebrate by helping mothers in need?
It's a few days early but: Happy Mother’s Day to you! Mothers Day is a beautiful and well-deserved holiday for mothers around the country and the world to be honored for their hard work and dedication to their families. Different countries around the world have embraced the holiday in different ways. Some governments have even used the holiday in attempt to shape the politics of their countries leaving no doubt that mothers, as well as their influence, are a powerful force in this world. Here in the U.S. in the early 1900’s, Ana Jarvis made her mother’s dream a reality by creating a national holiday that celebrated mothers. Years after creating the holiday, Jarvis was arrested while protesting the same holiday she had created. In her eyes…

Alex Sullivan, 14, coordinated a work project that included painting and carpet replacement.
It was a fitting day for the work that Alex Sullivan had in mind for his Eagle Scout project. With help from fellow Boy Scouts and their parents, Alex spent most of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday making a difference in his community. The 14-year-old Parkview High School freshman led a project at the Lilburn Cooperative Ministry on Five Forks-Trickum Road that brought a fresh coat of paint and new carpeting to the office area in the back of the facility. Alex, a member of Troop 580, which is based at the Lucerne Baptist Church in Lilburn, planned and implemented the project, including raising money, getting dozens of his Troop mates and many of their parents to volunteer their time, and lining up donated materials from the nearby Lowe’s…
