September Work Session

Jaden Beasley and Akeem Scott, North Atlanta High students, received t-shirts in recognition of their completion of three (3) community service sessions at the Jennie Drake Park. The Friends of Jennie Drake Park recognize middle and high school students in this manner.

Crown Castle Workday

Fifty employees from Crown Castle spent several hours in Jennie Drake Park on Wednesday, May 9th.  The enthusiastic group removed sections of a fallen tree, built a path to one of the seating areas and planted wildflowers.

The volunteer effort was organized by John Ahern, volunteer coordinator for Park Pride.  Helping John was Ellen Bruenderman, program assistant.  The mission of Park Pride is “to engage communities to activate the power of parks.”

Thanks to Crown Castle Atlanta and team leaders:  Elise Bennett, Gerald Evans, Bryan Jenkins, Eugene Miller, Millicent Norman, and Stanley Riley.

Also, thanks to our two City Council Members, Dustin Hillis, District 9, and Matt Westmoreland, Post 2 At Large, who stopped by and took a walk through Jennie Drake Park.
