Every year we invite the public to join us in watching the 4th of July Parade. Our office is located in the heart of downtown Marietta, an ideal spot to watch the parade. We also had complementary biscuits, snow cones, parking and beverages for everyone to enjoy. This year attorney Justin O’Dell handed out biscuits to trolley riders and drivers as they came by during the parade. We had a great crowd for 2017 and can’t wait to host again next year!

This month, the students at Lockheed Elementary School in Marietta got a special treat. Leslie O’Neal spent time with Kindergarteners reading “Bunny Cakes”. In her role on the Cobb County Board of the United Way, Leslie always looks forward to volunteer opportunities in local elementary schools. The story of “Bunny Cakes” is much like legal disputes. Max and his sister, Ruby, have different ideas about what kind of cake to bake. But in the end, compromise prevails and a settlement is reached!
