This summer 2019 there’s a program in place in great Gwinnett to help feed its kids and teens in need of basic nutrition. We’re starting to understand that schools are vital not only for education but also to feed students. Once schools close in the spring that leaves a time when many young people not enrolled need help getting meals during summer break. Thankfully, Gwinnett Parks Founda- tion has stepped forward with a free lunch and snacks program for young county citizens 18 years of age and younger. Locations are at three Gwinnett Parks & Recreation locations: June 16th Yoga is all about the Fitness of Things, and it has a kind of harmonic convergence in Peachtree Corners this summer—the season starts officially by the way on Friday June 21, hooray! And it gets even better: Yoga on the Green, it’s called, and it’s scheduled this end of spring and summer season for Tuesday mornings, 8:00-9:00 am. The newly christened Town Green is now open. Peachtree Corners dedicated the first community event at the new Town Green at an evening concert April 27 by the venerable Atlanta Rhythm Section band and I was there to enjoy it. I really believe the new Town Green is destined to make Peachtree Corners even more special with a heightened sense of true community. Town Greens are a wonderful tradition that started in the New England colonies when America was young. There’s some- thing intimate about town greens because by their nature they’re centrally located, nicely landscaped and open to all. They’re always ambient places, and then at special times they host public events, inclusive when all are invited to enjoy common greenspace together. Town Greens are always about community. The Town Green at Peachtree Corners had beautiful sod installed this spring and is good to go. Free Yoga on the Green Free yoga sessions will be offered at Peachtree Corners Town Green on Tuesday mornings 8:00 am, throughout June and ending Aug. 27. Town Green is located directly across from The Forum on Peachtree Parkway. Continued on page 6 Nutrition programs will continue in the county even after schools are closed for the season.
