What will you do tomorrow?

Jul 31, 2017

By Charmelle Scott – Executive Director at BusiNeighbor Veterans Center Do you have to go to work or will you stay home and relax? Imagine you woke up tomorrow depressed, haunted by guilt, reminded of the smell of blood & gunpowder. You wonder if you will ever be at peace. Tomorrow 22 Veterans will commit suicide. Stone Mountain, GA — 08/01/2017 — Today marks an important first step towards the goal of opening the BusiNeighbor Inc. Veterans Recreation Center for all Georgia Veterans. BusiNeighbor, Inc. is hosting a community meeting open to Stone Mountain residents. Holding a community meeting is the first step in the zoning process to obtain a Special Land Use Permit under Dekalb County Zoning Ordinance Article 9 titled Recreation Club. The proposed facility is located at 5392 Old Rockbridge Road Stone Mountain Georgia. The Veterans Recreation center will be home to a food and clothing pantry, exercise room, computer lab, reading lab, and day room for relaxation. The center will provide activities and much needed relief for Veterans. “The center is Marta accessible, 3 miles away from Stone Mountain Park and 9 miles away from the Atlanta VA Regional office and the Atlanta Veterans Hospital. We are very excited! This center will help Veterans destress to progress.” states Charmelle Scott Executive Director of BusiNeighbor.

OTP Bucket List

Apr 13, 2015

By Suzanne Taylor These days, everyone seems to have a Bucket List. If you live in the suburbs of Atlanta, you’ve most likely gone downtown for the big attractions: the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, CNN and the various art and history museums. But we know there are some exciting and unique places to see OTP, too! We’ve compiled your suggestions and added some of our own and made this OTP Bucket List. Enjoy! For those who stop and smell the roses: Check out Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground, especially during the spring when 20 million daffodils bloom, but it is absolutely beautiful other seasons as well. Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw is a smaller, serene garden that is truly a hidden gem. They have an impressive Bonsai Tree collection, statues, and more than 16 acres of trees and flowers. If you enjoy a leisurely drive, Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville is another beautiful place for flower enthusiasts to visit. For the water lovers: Shoot the Hootch on the Chattahoochee River. Raft, kayak, paddle, tube or SUP your way down the Chattahoochee for an experience that will make you feel like Shoot the Hooch Scoop OTPyou have left the big city, even though you are just minutes from Atlanta. Rent a boat and enjoy Lake Lanier. Stop by Sunset Cove at Lanier Islands Lanierworld to experience a “floatilla” boat & sunset party! For a smaller lake, you can also enjoy a boat rental on Lake Allatoona. For the whole family: Tanglewood Farms in Canton. This 10-acre, kid-friendly farm is home to 150 different miniature animals.
