Hello fellow NAMI GWINNETT MEMBERS,

I just got back from the NAMI GEORGIA kick-off luncheon that was hosted by KIDS R KIDS corporate headquarters here in Duluth, Ga. The venue was great and the meal was sponsored by Kids R Kids and catered by Bamibinelli's located in Lilburn on Lawrenceville Highway. I got to meet fellow affiliate members and chairs, as well as, past sponsors of The NAMI WALK. The event was not only a success but allowed us to see what worked in the past and what can work in the future. Right now I like to ask for the full participation and commitment level from NAMI GWINNETT in the upcoming NAMI GEORGIA WALK. This is our only fundraiser as of now here in GWINNETT. I would so love to add more fundraisers just for GWINNETT but as of now this is our primary source of funds. Gwinnett is the Second largest County in the state for population and the largest for square miles. This means we are the largest of 152 counties and Georgia is the largest state that is east of the Mississippi River. I would like to see NAMI GWINNETT grow with four to five support groups in different parts of the county. The areas of Buford, Dacula, and Snellville/Grayson are really under served. Our Newest support group in Norcross has grown from 5 to 13 people in only 8 weeks. NAMI is a grassroots organization and last time I checked grass grown in your backyard. So support needs to be closer to the people that are served. We in NAMI are only as strong as our weakest link. I want us as a family to not only come together but encourage others to heal through the recovery process that NAMI has developed. As always if you have any questions please feel free to call me 770.696.4315 or email me at kjohnson_president_namigwinnett@yahoo.com With deepest gratitude to my fellow members Kevin A. Johnson NAMI Gwinnett President
