Dear Milton Neighbor,
Happy May Day! I hope this note finds you safe and enjoying this beautiful day. During this month as we celebrate Memorial Day May 25, it is appropriate to remember our military men and women and their families working for peace. Please join me at Milton City Hall May 25 at 10:00 am for a celebration honoring military veterans and others who give so much so that we can live in America.

Fulton County Swine Flu Memorandum
Many folks have asked me about swine flu updates. My suggestion to all of us is to stay abreast of what's going on in the world regarding this potential pandemic. Above is a link to an article from the Gainesville Times (circulated by the president of the college where I teach) and a memorandum from Fulton County with helpful information about the flu. There is no reason for panic but awareness and steps towards prevention is important. It is vital at all times and especially now to encourage your children to wash their hands with warm soapy water during the school day. As always, watch for news and information as this serious situation develops.
Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers and business sponsors that participated in the Great Birmingham Park Cleanup last Saturday.
Through the efforts of the city manager's staff,Milton Grows Green and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints organizing committee, the city of Milton showed great support during "The Great American Cleanup" and "Day of Service." Click on this link for a list of the sponsors.
Earth Day Celebration
A special thanks to the Hopewell Middle School Eco Explorers for their support of Earth Day. The students participated with the Starbucks (Bethany and Highway 9) staff in a special Earth Day celebration last Saturday. Starbucks provided free trees and coffee grounds and education about recycling and water conservation.
