The Greater Eastside Chamber Of Commerce of Snellville is hosting it's annual Give Back. In a time as we are living in today, this event could not come at a better time. There are so many families who are in such a bad situation because of the pandemic. For some they don't know where their next meal is coming from. This is a sad situation, but a real one. That's why The Give Back is an event that needs your support. GECC wants to give to those who are in dire need, but it wants to also recognize those who are doing great things in the community.
You can not only attend this event, but you can also make donations. GECC is accepting the following donations which can be brought to the event.
Yesterday Kamala Harris was scheduled to speak at the Infinite Energy Center in Gwinnett. Being that I am officially a member of the press I was able to be on the frontlines where Kamala would be speaking. Before we could get to the frontlines, we had to be searched by the dogs and secret service. Well I took the opportunity to take a picture with secret service which I thought was really cool, because he was so nice.
I think when I told him we had to take a picture it caught him and Georgette off guard, he laughed and said okay and we shot a quick selfie while the dogs was sniffing my car for guns or knives.
I know that the secret service are just law enforcements, but I feel like they are grades above our local heros. I know that the roles that they all play daily are extremely important and I respect all of the good ones and I am thankful and grateful for the work that they do.
Yesterday was so cool. I got a chance to go to the Infinite Energy Center where so many local leaders were yesterday, but what was really exciting was the fact that I got to represent Good Morning Gwinnett and get a chance to be within 100 feet of Vice President Hopeful Kamala Harris.
Before Kamala took the stage Jon Ossoff, Stacy Abrams, Lucy McBath, Hank Johnson and Carolyn Bordeaux took to the stage to rally the crowed and to express just how important the 2020 election is.
Kamala followed to remind the people why they should vote for Vice President Joe Biden and herself. There is a lot on the line and that was the general message from all of the candidates. We have only one day left to see what the turn out will be. However it turns out I hope that people remember that we are all Americans and that there are others out there just waiting for us to turn on each other so that they can come in and finish us off.
All in all yesterday was history making for me and my team as we braved the brisk Sunday afternoon all while wearing a mask to make sure we were practicing safety from the Corona Virus.
