Give Back Connection for Aug. 23

Help heal with the power of music

Whether you are in the music or mental health profession or not, the Alchemy Sky Foundation is always looking for volunteers.

Based on ongoing and future programs, volunteers can work on-site at the partners’ premises. Activities include set-up/tear-down of equipment, room set-up, logging attendance and working with clients (with project leader supervision). There are also administrative options such as blogging, fundraising, photography and the marketing of ASF and its mission to bring the healing power of music to those that need it.

High school students 16 years and older are also welcome.

Volunteer judges needed at ‘Paint the Park’

Artists of all ages and skill level are invited to “Paint the Park” at Blackburn Park on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 1 to 4 p.m. Volunteer judges are also needed.

To illustrate the importance of civic art, once the pieces are completed they will be displayed in the park visible from Ashford-Dunwoody Road until the event closes. The winning pieces will then be on display at City Hall.

Judges will be needed to determine winners in several categories.

Art supplies and paper will be provided, but feel free to bring your own easel and canvas if you wish, and let the natural surroundings inspire you! Cool treats and prizes will also be part of the fun.

When: 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 16

Where: Blackburn Park, 3493 Ashford Dunwoody Road.

Information: or 404-637-0508.
