Better Together and Communiteen to hold event.

Emma Harrison, daughter of Better Together member Teri Harrison, shows off two Thanksgiving baskets that will be provided to Better Together's sponsored senior.

Better Together, Milton residents looking for unique and fun opportunities to connect with neighbors, will be partnering with Communiteen in hosting its final event for 2014. The event will be held Dec. 14 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Bethwell Community Center, located at 2695 Hopewell Road in Milton (click here for directions).

Communiteen, a Better Together-affiliated organization of Milton-area high school students, encourages and fosters friendships among teens of all abilities.

At the event, participants will exchange gifts (limit $10), decorate cookies and collect gift donations for North Fulton Community Charities.

Ansley Bradwell, one of the founders of the Communiteen group, said there will be plenty to eat and drink. Hot chocolate, pretzels and fruit will be served.

All Milton-area high school students are encouraged to attend this event. If you plan to attend or would like more information, please contact Ansley Braswell or Meredith Johnson

Separately, in addition to participating in the Thanksgiving Senior Sponsorship program with North Fulton Community Charities, Better Together will also be helping a local family at Christmas by providing funds for needed food items.

Better Together member Teri Harrison coordinated these activities for the group. She said both are very rewarding experiences for Better Together and ones we hope to continue in the future.

All residents are invited to attend Better Together's twice-monthly meetings which take place at the Bethwell Community Center, 2695 Hopewell Road in Milton (click here for directions).
