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 where they recently acquired hospital room dividers and other amenities. We are very excited! This center will help Veterans destress to progress.” states Charmelle Scott Executive Director of BusiNeighbor.
The community meeting will be held on Thursday August 22, 2017 at 6:30p.m. at the Stone Mountain Library 952 Leon Street Stone Mountain GA., 30083.
