This afternoon a phone call from a staff member at the Mayor’s office here in Atlanta notified me of an unexpected nomination for a community award based on the ongoing creative writing classes and workshops I teach through Gateway Performance Productions for senior citizens at a variety of Atlanta venues.
On Monday, May 18, 2015. I am to arrive at Atlanta City Hall and report to the mayor’s cabinet room where refreshments will be served. After this “Honorees will be recognized at a noon press conference and at the 1pm Council meeting.”
I am deeply honored to be nominated and to have this opportunity to highlight the importance of enrichment programs to the physical, mental and spiritual health of the elders in our community.
