What have we been up to?
S.A.F.E. Volunteers and employees had a great time on Saturday Dec 4th decorating a float for the Blairsville annual Christmas parade. Our entry this year was “Santa’s Helpers.”
Halloween at Meeks Park
S.A.F.E. Volunteers enjoyed handing out candy this Halloween at Meeks Park in Blairsville. The turn out was surprising, with little ghouls and monsters everywhere!
Remember My Name Ceremony
Thank you to the many community members who attended this year’s Remember My Name Ceremony. Each and every person lost to domestic violence is a life that should remembered.
Our community members lit one candle for each of the 103 women, men, and children who died from domestic violence. These candles were set along the bridge at the Union County Farmer’s Market at sundown after reading the Remember My Name poem and the name of each victim.
Fashion Show was a Hit!
Community Connections 101 put on a fantastic fashion show fundraiser to raise money for SAFE. The hosts were hilarious, the activities fun, and the fashion was excellent! We especially enjoyed the high-fashion look alikes! SAFE cannot say thank you enough for the hard work put into this fundraiser by so many different giving individuals.
