 Reading Garden and Commemorative Bricks 

In May 2002, the SSWC donated a small track of land to be used as a "Reading Garden" next to and east of the Sandy Springs Library.  The park was re-dedicated by Eva Galambos, Mayor of the City of Sandy Springs in 2006.  That year the SSWC begin a campaign for many in the community to purchase a “Commemorative Brick”.  Community families, leaders and businesses purchased engraved bricks to honor individuals or groups of their choice. In 2010, the Commemorative Brick Wall was built as a vertical sitting wall at the entrance of the Reading Garden.  Adding to this landmark, a new partnership between the county, city and ArtsSS took the lead in erecting the 15 language Peace Pole, a labyrinth and walkway around the park.  Many from the community helped to make this an enjoyable oasis in the heart of the city for reading and enjoying nature at its best.  

The Commemorative Brick Wall continues to expand through purchases of new commenorative bricks.   Proceeds from the bricks are used to raise funds for various programs supported by the SSWC, such as the Girl's State scholarship. 




Our Cookbook

In 2010, SSWC chairpersons Marva Greene and Amanda Degenhardt worked with the community to develop the 2010 SSWC Cookbook.  Cooking truly is both an art form and a way to bring pleasure to those in our homes, community and workplace.  Recipes were collected from local leaders, including Eva Galambos, Mayor of Sandy Springs, chefs from local restaurants, and SSWC members.

The cookbook, housed in an attractive three ring padded binder, includes:

  • Over 400 recipes 
  • Weights and measures
  • A roasting chart
  • Tips on baking breads and deserts, cooking vegetables and fruit, and much more
  • Quick substitutions for common ingredients
  • Cooking terms
  • A list of basic pantry needs
  • Definitions of spices
  • Quick fixes
  • And more!

Proceeds from the cookbooks were used to raise funds for various programs supported by the SSWC, such as to purchase books and school supplies for children in the community.
