November 8, 2010

I’d like to take a few moments to thank everyone who came out to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 2.  There was a HUGE turnout in Fairburn – I had to wait in line for over an hour.  I know the lines were out the door at most polling locations all day long.  

I’m proud to say that the Fairburn referendum allocating more than $10 million to fund 4 local rebuilding projects passed!  The restoration of Duncan Park is one of these projects, so now the Eric Berry Foundation can really work together with the city of Fairburn and its citizens to make some major changes at Duncan Park.

The refurbishment of Duncan Park will not only affect Fairburn youth but the entire community.  The park offers something for all ages and I hope that it will once again become the focal point of our community.  Duncan Park is a place for our kids to learn to play sports with their friends, while families can attend community gatherings and round tables.  Right now there really is not anything for the masses.  There is nowhere for us to go to host seminars, large events or any community get-togethers.  The restoration the Duncan Park community center will give us the perfect place to host any and all meetings and events.

Thanks again for showing your support for this community and voting yes on the referendum on Nov. 2.  I honestly believe that the refurbishment of Duncan Park, as well as the other three projects included in the referendum, will help bring our community together and build our town into a place we will all be proud to show off to South Fulton and the rest of the state.

We invite you to come out to Duncan Park to watch a Fairburn Flames game on the new football field we’ve recently installed with help from our friends at AstroTurf.  It really is incredible.  Continue to come back to the Eric Berry Foundation website for updates about our projects.  Please feel free to contact us at for more information or with any questions.

You all are the best!
Carol Berry
