LCP Receives Grant from Allstate
The Lilburn Community Partnership, Inc. is delighted to receive $1,000 from The Allstate Foundation in honor of Allstate Agent Miriam Vega's volunteerism. We are pleased to partner with Allstate and their commitment to making our hometowns better, safer places to live.
The LCP is currently working to weatherize the Wynne-Russell Historic Home in preparation for hosting community gatherings. These funds will help implement the organization’s mission of “fostering a vigorous, secure and community spirit-filled environment in which residents, businesses, organizations, institutions and visitors prosper.”
LCP president Diana Preston said, “We truly appreciate this grant. It comes to us at a critical time as we are making much needed improvements inside and outside the Wynne-Russell house so that we can continue our programming for community building. Miriam Vega’s Allstate Insurance Agency is a great community partner.”

Holiday Family Photos, Tours, and Crafts
This past Saturday was a great day to for visitors to the Wynne-Russell House. Several vendors displayed crafts and baked goods and photographers Valerie Payne and Richard Ferris took great family photos (pets included.)
The Lilburn Community Partnership has decorated the house for the holidays and will be planning two more photos, crafts and tour events for Saturdays, Dec. 6 and Dec. 20 from noon until 4 p.m. Interested vendors may register through Lilburnevents.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another recent event at the Wynne Russell House was Gross Goodies on Oct. 26. Attended by approx. 70 Girl Scouts, Leaders, and family members. The girls enjoyed a little taste of the haunted history of the house (Ghost Readings Report by Timeless Paranormal) along with their Gross Goodies. They sampled or took home creepy cakes, several types of "q-tips", vats of soupy, sloppy mystery food, marshmallow mummies, a meatloaf foot, and lots of other body parts everywhere. A fun, sugary time was had by all.
The Wynne-Russell House is a true Lilburn treasure and we appreciate the community coming out to visit it. Donations are appreciated and will benefit the repair and maintenance of the Wynne-Russell Historical House. As we draw near to the end of the year, please keep the house in mind that the LCP is a 501c3 and donations to the organization to benefit house are tax deductible.
