Doris Mann 1975-1976

During these years, the club spent much effort promoting Lilburn's Bicentennial plans beginning a long-lasting relationship with the City of Lilburn. The club participated on the Bicentennial Commitee, helped to organize Lilburn's first 4th of July parade, obtained a donated flag and flagpole, organized a clean-up day, promoted the purchase of the Wynne Russell House (a local historical home), and organized planting of 1500 red, white and blue bulbs. The first Tour of Homes was held to help furnish the new City Hall. The first annual Christmas Auction was held in 1975. The club's newsletter was begun. The 1975 Lilburn Arts and Crafts Fair was called the 'Affair on the Square' and raised over $500. We adopted a Crane at the Atlanta Zoo, and received our first recognition by being awarded the Outstanding Club Award from the American Cancer Society.
