Spirit night Tuesday to support public safety

by Wes Mayer

To raise money for the May 2 annual Public Safety Apprelunch, on Tuesday, the Chick-fil-A dwarf house on Bullsboro Drive will host a spirit night.

The spirit night will last from 5 to 8 p.m., and all customers are encouraged to mention “public safety” when they pay for their meals. The money will then go to the Newnan- Coweta Public Safety Foundation Fund and help raise money for the appreciation lunch in May at the Coweta County Fairgrounds.

Public Safety Appreciation week begins on April 27.

“All of the money stays right here in Coweta County, and every penny in the fund is used specifically for helping our men and women who provide us safety and care,” said Norma Haynes, a long-time member of the planning committee with the Newnan-Coweta Public Safety Foundation.

“I am so very proud of every man and woman who serves this county in any way in public safety, and I want every citizen in Coweta County to know how much you are appreciated.”
