County Mayor Joe Boyd Liggett signs a proclamation declaring Aug. 31 through Sept. 7 Impact Week. Behind him, from left, are Lynne Holt, Marshall County Impact Center program director; Sue Lovlace, board member; and Mack and Shirley Jordan, board members and parents of an Impact participant.
Impact Week is designed to help raise awareness about Impact Center and their participants. During the week, local restaurants will be using special placemats that are an adapted version of the Impact Center's newsletter. In one corner of the placemat there will be an invitation to make a tax-deductible gift. Gifts will be collected at the restaurants in special mailboxes with covers decorated by Impact Center participants.
