One event we never miss is the Coweta Samaritan Clinic’s annual fundraiser.  So, put on your jeans and boots and join us for the 9th Annual Bluegrass & Barbecue! This event will feature top local chefs, great bluegrass music, and lots of fun! Marie and I are long time sponsors of this event and more importantly the good work done by Samaritan Clinic.

This free clinic serves the medical needs of those citizens 19 year of age or older who live in Coweta County, have household incomes 200% below the federal poverty level and have no access to any medical insurance.

Samaritan Clinic began treating patients in October 2011. Since then the clinic’s patient base has grown to more than 950 individuals and volunteer healthcare professionals have conducted more than 8,000 patient visits.

With the exception of three full-time and four part-time employees, all medical care and office support is provided by volunteers. More than 80 volunteers are active at the clinic and the value of service provided by volunteers in 2014 was nearly $300,000. That does not include the value of services provided by many kind and skilled specialists in the community who treat clinic patients without charge in their offices.

Hats and Hooves 2019

One of our favorite charities is Communities in Schools. We support them financially and with our time, volunteering to mentor each week at Ruth Hill Elementary.

Communities In Schools of Coweta County was organized with a single mission in mind: to provide services and support to students struggling to remain in school and graduate.

 This effort begins with Site Coordinators who serve as advocates for our CIS students. Site Coordinators help identify students in need of assistance and connect those students—and family members—to community resources that can help remove obstacles to student success. The effectiveness of CIS is incredible, consider supporting them!
