Today if you’re driving around Conyers/Rockdale you might see groups of your friends picking up trash, painting walls, or working in community gardens.
If you do, give them a wave because they are participating in a brand new project called Hands Across Rockdale.
It was developed by the Conyers/Rockdale Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Rockdale Class of 2011 and passed on to future Leadership classes as a way to give back to the community in a tangible way.
The Leadership Rockdale Class of 2012 — aptly called the smartest of the Leadership classes — has taken up the challenge and has secured many local community volunteers for today’s activities.
We salute the volunteers and the community businesses who donated supplies and monies to supply the volunteers today and also the Leadership Class of 2011 for having the vision to see this project through.
Hands Across Rockdale and its success is another fine example of the character and generous spirit of our community.
