I was at the council meeting about the memorial....
I learned that the council had No Knowledge that the flags were removed until after the fact .The city manager and the city attorney decided this was a must and took them down without approval .
The council voted to replace the flags and the following morning they were there , alongside several Paulding county citizens and folks from all over , including myself , and we replaced those memorials .i feel very proud to have witnessed and to have been a part of this .
The outpouring of love from the people of Paulding County for the Greystone fire victims has been amazing! So much so, that we no longer need clothes donations. Please don't bring any more clothes to City Hall. We are full.
If you still wish to donate, we are now accepting school supplies, toiletries, gift cards/cash, and new towels and washcloths. Thank you again for the kindness you've shown to our citizens!
