2018 Events and Happenings: Independence Celebration: Neighbors Make Smiles!  

Volunteer

An organization cannot make it without volunteers. Several are showing up to help with events, meetings, and projects but ongoing volunteered time should be noted: 

Marietta Community Projects

Clean up our roads! Even though there’s a $1,000 fine for littering, people still heave beer cans, soda cans, Styrofoam cups, dirty diapers, car parts, and old clothing onto the sides of our roads without concern or care for how nasty it looks. Marietta Smiles invites volunteers twice a year to make a statement by walking the "three miles" of Marietta to pick up trash.
FRESH PAINT! is a joint effort of the TR Sherwin Williams paint store and Marietta Smiles. The program is in honor of Kristen Schroeder who loved this community and wanted to see it prosper. The program provides paint/sealer for the roof tops of mobile homes. Contact us for eligibility requirements

Help Preserve Our History

Much of our history is available because of ambassadors. Ambassadors are people who know the oral history of the area, are at least 70 years of age and have lived in the Slater-Marietta-Cleveland community for at least five decades (50 years.) With a $25 application fee, ambassadors are nominated by people in the community and a hat bearing the last name and year of birth distinguish one hat from another. To date: we have Lawrence Ledford, “Babe” Williams, Arlee Coggins and Dr. James Barnett. You may see them wearing their caps or catch a photo of them receiving their one-of-a-kind acknowledgement of distinction. 

Special projects

Marietta Smiles accepts proposals for special projects. One example is  Chad's Chair. For approved projects, individuals can direct designated donations to Marietta Smiles, who can provide a letter (for tax purposes) acknowledging the donation. The funds are distributed directly to a company. No money is paid to an individual. In the case of Chad's Chair, Sandra Crain and others raised $7,500 dollars at Moon Boom. Marietta Smiles took in these dollars and wrote a check for $7,500 to the Company that manufactures the chair. A community event marked the celebration of the success of this project.
