Title: State President

State Presidents Message
Lighting Up Lives Celebrating Fifty Years of
Ashley Koby
Paul Bowers has offered to host a Yammer with
Paul session focused on CGP on March 15 at 130
p.m.. Please join in and be thinking about
questions to ask.
We have just had our first CGP state board
meeting and a very successful officers training
the weekend of February 4. The board voted to
increase our service hour goal to 70,000 this
year and continue what we started last year with
not having a membership goal number. We are
however encouraging each chapter to maintain or
increase membership when compared to 2011. We
also voted to raffle off a 2012 Kia Sorrento with
tickets being sold between June 1 and September 6
with the drawing being held at the Energy
Exchange meeting on Sept 6. The raffle will
benefit Electric Kids. As far as officers
training, we had 154 people in attendance and
shared a tremendous amount of information and
ideas. Paul and Karen Bowers attended as well as
Mike Anderson and Jeff Petrea, all showing their
support and encouragement for the year. We ended
the day with a great motivational speech by
Martha Lanier, author of Pink Lemonade, who
challenged us to overcome our fears, use the
skills of those around us, and live our best
life. Dont forget to join the Citizens of
Georgia Power Group on Yammer to share upcoming
events, meetings, projects, or best practices
across the state. Go to to learn more
and to sign up. You dont want to miss an
upcoming Yammer with Paul.

Jefferson Streets 4th Annual Lunch for Lunch To
Benefit Crossroads
Bright and early Thursday morning, February 9,
members of the Heart of Georgia Chapter arrived
to cook breakfast for employees. Breakfast was
served at 700 a.m. as a way to say thank you
to the employees for their support of the chapter
during 2011 and let them know some of the things
planned for 2012. State Coordinator Peggy
Grubb shared information about Educational Loan
Fund, Electric Kids, and the Georgia Power Family
House with the group. Door prizes were given
away, and great food, fun and fellowship was
enjoyed prior to everyone starting a
SAFE workday. Many of the employees chose to
join or rejoin during the breakfast.
Jefferson Street set a goal to prepare 200 meals
for the homeless through their annual Lunch for
Lunch project. Employees donated items to help
pack lunches for the homeless through donations
to the Crossroads charity. Fifty-five volunteers
came together during their lunch hour and
assembled 730 sandwiches and 690 complete
lunch Bags which also included fruit. They were
delivered to Crossroads. Heres what a note of
thanks said
We are truly honored that your team chose
Crossroads to assist. Sorry I did not bring a
larger vehicle but I had no idea there would be
that many. Thank goodness you had a van!!!!
Thank you sounds like such a trite thing to say
so I wish I could box up the joy you are
bringing to those we serve but there would not be
a box large enough to contain that.
