The GFWC Lilburn Woman's Club is excited to announce the presentation of a check in the amount of $6,300.00 to the Lilburn Cooperative Ministry. On Saturday, December 2nd, the Lilburn Woman's Club hosted the Lilburn Christmas Walking Tour of Homes with all proceeds being donated to the Lilburn Co-op.

Such a successful event would not have happened without the wonderful residents who opened their beautifully decorated homes for the tour. Heartfelt thanks go to Scot and Alicia McCready, Hugh and Rowann Wilkerson, Lilburn's current Mayor and his wife - Johnny and Anne Crist, John and Catherine Calhoun and Brad and Joann Roselle. Even the weather cooperated with a full moon shining on all the visitors. Carolers were singing along the lighted route and Santa enjoyed many selfies with guests. The members of the Lilburn Woman's Club provided delicious homemade Christmas cookies for all the guests and homeowners also provided refreshments.

On Tuesday, December 5, members of the Lilburn Woman's Club along with members of the Christmas Tour Committee presented a check to Sharon Foster, the new Executive Director of the Lilburn Co-op in the amount of $6,300. $6,000 in proceeds from the Christmas tour and $300 in proceeds from a baked goods silent auction at the club's annual Christmas dinner were combined for the total contribution. Ms. Foster stated the Lilburn Co-op served over 8,000 families this year and donations like ours help keep the heat on and food on the table for many families living paycheck to paycheck. "Community Concern" is our motto and it is a proud moment when our club can make a difference in our community.
