Many thanks to the volunteers who helped install the Legacy Markers this morning! Here's a group photo.
Here's an excerpt from last month's Messenger about this effort..
The Early Edgewood-Candler Park BiRacial History Project has been awarded two grants to help replace two legacy markers that were damaged over the last few months in separate incidents.
Now, it’s up to Candler Parkers to chip in with a little volunteerism to install the updated signs. Park Pride is providing a “Small Change” grant of $1,800, and the Atlanta Mayor’s Office has offered up a $1,000 “Love Your Block” grant. The funds should cover the anticipated expenses to replace both damaged markers.
Both grants require a neighborhood volunteering component, and CPNO isn’t alone in agreeing to participate. Among the others who’ve volunteered to help are Friends of Candler Park, the Mary Lin principal’s office, the pastor at Antioch East Baptist Church, the First Existentialist Congregation Social Justice Guild, Pimsler Hoss Architects and Small Carpenters at Large.
