Here’s a look at some of our favorite events from 2017.

• In July, we were in the Fourth of July parade and went all-out on our float with a “law for freedom” theme. One of our team member’s husbands even dressed up as a judge! • In October, we did a client appreciation event and gave out gift bags. There was a huge barbecue and a raffle, where we gave a huge TV. We’re excited to make this an annual get-together.

• September was our back-to-school drive. We gave away hundreds of bags of school supplies to students to make going back to school a little easier.

• To create more happy Thanksgivings, we gave away 100 turkeys in November. Using social media, we let people know we’d be giving them away, and on that day, we had food and drinks and gave away the turkeys. Seeing posts from people who said they wouldn’t have been able to buy a turkey otherwise made us realize how impactful the giveaway was. Thank you to everyone who participated. We hope you enjoyed it. It’s something we plan to continue and grow each year.

How were your Thanksgiving and Christmas? It’s still hard to believe the holiday season is over, isn’t it? It seems to go by more quickly each year. One of the highlights for my family is going to a tree farm to get our Christmas tree. We go every year to cut one down ourselves and bring it home to decorate. My kids love it. They enjoy picking out the perfect tree, and of course, the marshmallows and hot chocolate. In addition to time with family, we were busy at the practice. We saw our business grow and our team become stronger, and we felt like we go to know you a little better. It’s been a focus of ours this past year. We have been in the West Georgia area since 1993. We want to offer you the best, so our focus is on what’s best for you. Most of our clients come from West Georgia, and we’re thankful to be part of the community and to fulfill a need we recognized. Now that we’re here, we’re using our resources to make fun and supportive contributions to our community. It’s always satisfying when we are able to give to the community where we work, live and play.

• During the Carrollton Christmas parade, we gave out candy and got to share in the festive celebration with you all. Wasn’t it a good time?

Events like these are meaningful because they remind all of us that it’s not about the money — it’s about helping people. The need is all around us. Statistics make us realize how deep the need goes, like how many of the students in our schools are on free or reduced lunch. Many people are still recovering from the economic troubles of the last decade. As an organization, we are ready to make a difference in both the legal profession and our community.

We had a lot to be grateful for last year, and in 2018, we want to find even more ways to share that with others.

Happy new year, and we hope to see you at the next event.
