Better Together: A look back at 2013.

Better Together, a volunteer committee of Milton-area residents, had a successful 2013.

In keeping with its primary goal of identifying ways in which to make Milton a more welcoming community for all, committee members participated in a number of activities and projects during the year.

These included supporting North Fulton Community Charities and the new Milton Senior Center, hosting quarterly meetings open to the public (such as the conversation with state House Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones) and participating in Earth Day, Rivers Alive and Adopt-a-Road.

In addition, the volunteer committee also continues to work closely with Milton-area high school students by supporting the work of Communiteen. Communiteen encourages and fosters friendships among teens of all abilities.

Better Together committee members range in age from high school students to senior adults. All interested citizens are welcome to attend the twice-monthly meetings which are normally held at the Bethwell Community Center, 2695 Hopewell Road (click here for directions). Meetings are typically held every other Monday evening from 6 to 7 p.m.
