VMNA Needs Your Help

For the first time that I can remember in 39 years here in Village Mill, there are no officers ready to keep VMNA up and running. While the pool is a draw for getting people into Village Mill, VMNA is the heart and soul that keeps us here-the recent Ladies' Christmas Party, the Easter Egg Hunt, Strawberry Festival, the 4th of July Parade, Ghost Patrol and a party or two during the year.


Add the newsletter, the directory, book clubs, neighborhood watch, upkeep of the entrances, the neighborhood reps, candles and bows, and you can see why we need to keep VMNA going strong!It is the glue that is responsible for the ambience that is uniquely Village Mill - anotherreason families want to live here. Surely there is someone who can volunteer for a year or two. This is our family for many of us and we need to keep it together.

ROMEO 2014 began with a BANG as our January breakfast meeting was extremely well attended to hear from a ROMEO favorite, Mr. Chris Carr, newly appointed Commissioner, Georgia Department Of Economic Development. Chris left us no doubt as to his passion, vision, and knowledge in this very important position for our great state. Details of the scope, breadth, and initiatives of The Department shared with us by Chris are awesome. Governor Deal made a great choice in selecting Chris. Watch our State grow economically!


Our FEBRUARY breakfast meeting will be Monday (always 2nd Monday), February 10 at the Hickory House. Thanks to Rick McCully's efforts, our speaker will be Mr. Tom Faber, Director, Long Term Care Planning Center Of Georgia. This represents a nice change of pace for The ROMEOS and this subject should be of great interest to all ROMEOS. We look forward to seeing one and all.


For additional ROMEO information, please contact John Pleck, Chairman
