Thank You Ms. Connie and Mrs. Irene

Since it is Administrative Secretary week,  ACCA would like to take a moment Ms. Connie and Mrs. Irene for the many, many phone calls that they field each day, directing the caller to the right person, and referring them to other resources in the community.  Thank you both for all that you do for ACCA… It just wouldn’t be a great place to work without you.  In addition, today can’t go by without ACCA also thanking Mary Harris and Caroline Bratton who are both SCSEP trainee’s who are at ACCA training to learn the skills necessary to perform these jobs.

Thank You, Athens!

Team Zaxby's gearing up to run the 5K and 12k.

We could not be happier with the turn out and response for our first ever 12K and fourth annual 5K that benefited the local Meals on Wheels program.  We had nearly 50 volunteers who helped us with the race and we couldn’t have done it without them.  The dedicated runners showed up and the weather actually was perfect for a good run.  You can see all of the pictures on our Facebook page by CLICKING HERE.

Because of you… it is more than just a meal.

We couldn’t do what we do without our wonderful volunteers.  This morning they were honored with a breakfast and got a sneak peak at this video describing the impact they have on our community each and every day.  Thank you.  Because of you… it is more than just a meal.

ACCA Needs Your Help

ACCA, in partnership with UGA’s Institute for Leadership Advancement, is working on an exciting new initiative to create an “age-friendly” Athens community.  We would like to invite representatives from the Athens-Clarke County area to be a part of a focus group. The purpose is to gather feedback and ideas from individuals, ages 55 and older, for the creation and implementation of a Business Certification for Age Friendly Businesses in our area.

Community members are key stakeholders in this project and we would like to invite your (members, congregation, etc.) to contribute their comments and idea.   There are several opportunities to participate beginning March 17th and continuing through March 28th.  Please click Focus Group Information and Directions for complete details including registration instructions and further information about the project. We ask that you share this invitation with those that you feel could contribute their ideas and experiences which will help us create an “age-friendly” Athens.

 We look forward to hearing from you!
