Save Lids to Save Lives  


My name is Molly Baker and I live in Lee’s Crossing and attend Marietta Middle School. I am working on a community service project this year.  Many people are fighting breast cancer and many have died from breast cancer. You can help! Yoplait is donating ten cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure (breast cancer research) for each pink Yoplait yogurt lid submitted. I am collecting all of these pink lids from you and will submit them to Yoplait for my project. Please collect pink lids, rinse them off, and drop them in my mailbox at 703 Chartworth Circle. Sending in these lids can make a big difference.  Please have all lids to me by 12/26/10.


*Remember, these lids must be pink!!!

I Recommend……


Ken and Benita Brisco highly recommend Abner Ruiz from Top Choice Painters.  They did an excellent job painting the exterior of our home, staying on schedule and being very professional throughout the job.  Along with the quality of the completed work, the price was great and we’ve received a lot of compliments from our neighbors.  You can contact Abner by phone at (404)313-3381 or via email at info@topchoicepainters.com.  You can also find more info online at www.topchoicepainters.com.


Karen Hinton recommends Crowe Granite Counter Tops. Bill Dickman lives in our neighborhood and works at Crowe Counter Tops. My original kitchen counters were installed with the house in 1980, white laminate. I really wanted a change but I was intimated by the whole process and all the choices. When I saw the Bill lived in the neighborhood I called him. He ask me to come to the show room in Kennesaw and just look. I was overwhelmed but the sales people are so patient and helpful. After three visits I choose the black pearl granite. It has been installed and I couldn’t be happier. If you are in the market for new counters, call Bill Dickman 404-992-2610, he will be happy to help you through the exciting change. I am very happy with the service and the granite! My whole kitchen is beautifully transformed.


Minnie and Noel Follrath would like to highly recommend Ocampo Brothers Painting.  We recently had our home painted and new windows installed.  They were professional, on time and on budget.  We were very pleased with their work.
