Happy Fourth, Friends! WHEN WE RETURNED TO THE USA AFTER LIVING ABROAD FOR 13 YEARS, WE ATTENDED A PARADE IN SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS NEAR OUR NEW HOME. Pushing a stroller, pregnant with our second, we joined the crowd, still feeling like foreigners in our own country.

We had to get used to huge American grocery stores teeming with fresh produce and shelves full of Oreos and Pop Tarts, things we'd missed while living in Hong Kong and England. The conveniences and abundance were overwhelming here in America. We were wide-eyed for years. At the parade, we watched Girl Scouts wave flags and local politicians smile and strut their stuff. But, when the marching band paused in front of the grandstand and played America The Beautiful, we lost it. My husband teared up but I completely lost all composure and balled, sobbing with an appreciation for being home.  I know you appreciate this community and this country and will pause to salute our independence on July 4.

THE

PRESIDENT’S

VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD IN RECOGNITION OF THEIR OUTSTANDING SERVICE.

Gregory Galenter

The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) recognizes individuals who have demonstrated exemplary citizenship through volunteering. The PVSA started in 2003 as  a way to thank and honor Americans who, by example, inspired others to engage in volunteer service.  Pebble Tossers, one of the PVSAs Certifying Organizations, confers the awards to recognize the outstanding achievements of their youth volunteers. “These students have served in many different capacities and provided needed help in areas where they felt the most called. They have gone beyond the required hours for school  or civic requirements and served more than 3,100 hours. These hours provide over  $80,600 worth of value back into the community. That is amazing work for 16 teenagers.” says Jen Guynn, Pebble Tossers Executive Director.

HERITAGE SANDY SPRINGS MUSEUM AND PARK

Our History

ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY JENNIFER WEBB

Perimeter North Lifestyle | July 2019


A WALK THROUGH HERITAGE SANDY SPRINGS MUSEUM AND PARK IS A WALK THROUGH THE HISTORY OF SANDY SPRINGS ITSELF. Inside and outside, this Museum and Park holds the gems of a community spirit and continues to deliver today what will be tomorrow’s heritage for all Sandy Springs residents. This historic land came to be in 1984, because of the need to save the namesake of the Sandy Springs community – the original springs of Sandy Springs. The springs are a point where five fresh-water springs meet, flowing year-round at a rate of 10-gallons of water per minute at a temperature of 58 degrees. The property where the springs sits was privately owned, and in 1983 was about to be sold to developers, who would have backfilled the springs and ruined it for future generations. In stepped many individuals and groups and a movement was born. Fulton County contributed $300,000 towards the property purchase, but that left $233,000 to be raised by the community. The community successfully raised the money and the group decided to do more.  In 1985, the Williams-Payne house was added to the property. Now known as the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum, the WilliamsPayne House, named for the Williams family who built the house and farmed the land from the late 1860s until 1939, at which time the Payne family purchased the home. Originally located on the present day corner of Mount Vernon Highway and Georgia 400, the house was moved to the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum site in October 1985. From 1989 to 2009, the house operated as a historic house museum, reflecting life in rural Sandy Springs in the 1860s. In 2009, the house was converted to a history museum with changing exhibits that reflect the history and culture of Sandy Springs. Further renovations were completed in 2018, with five galleries dedicated to sharing the history, art, culture, and the heritage of our community. In front of Heritage Sandy Springs Museum is the Well Shelter. This shelter was used by the original Williams family and also dates back to the 1860s. After purchasing the home in 1936, the Payne family added electricity and indoor plumbing to the home, but kept the well shelter intact.

OUR HISTORY

(CON TI N U ED)

Strolling along the property in back of the Museum is a small outbuilding called the Burdett Milk House (right), thought to be one of the oldest known structures in Sandy Springs, dating back to 1860. It was donated in 1988, and moved from a farm on the southwest corner of Mount Paran Road and Lake Forrest Drive to HSSMP. The Milk House is 10 by 15 feet with a rock wall cellar to keep vegetables and perishables safe from the summer heat. In addition to the historic prizes of the property, there is much beauty to be found in the plants, flowers and gardens donated and maintained by local garden clubs and community volunteers. “Sandy Springs has been a city for 13 years, but it’s been a community since 1851,” says Keith Moore, Director of Curatorial & Educational Affairs. “At Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park our mission is to keep our history alive – to preserve the heritage of our community and to be a resource for everyone to get to know the story of Sandy Springs.” Today, people from all over come to Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park’s four-acres to enjoy its history, events, and outreach. There are museum exhibits, museum and park tours, educational programs for kids and adults, weddings and events held all over the property, free concerts, farmers market, and a yearly festival.

ABOUT

THE

FRIED CHICKEN—FROM  PARKWOODS? The brand-new restaurant  located within the freshly-renovated Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia is helmed by Executive Chef  Joe  Gentempo. Parkwoods’ menu is filled with timeless and comforting classics rooted in the tradition of regional SouthernAmerican cooking. One of Parkwoods’ lunch and dinner menu staples is its  fried  chicken  straight from the recipe repertoire of  Sous  Chef Sanje Harris, who hails from Antigua and moved to the U.S. in 1989. “The first time I made fried chicken the American way, it was way too messy and required too many preparations,” Sanje says. So he adapted his own, Antigua-rooted version, which he brought with him when he started at Parkwoods in 2019. 24

Perimeter North Lifestyle | July 2019


The chicken: Many chefs make fried chicken with an egg and milk batter, but Sanje’s method is a little different—he seasons the  chicken  with  only  a special blend of garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, & cayenne, brines it for  two  days, dips it in regular all-purpose flour, then it’s straight to the oil for frying.

The sides: Post-fry, Sanje serves up the finished product with sides inspired by the South: braised collard greens, red-eye gravy, a ‘sopping biscuit,’ and a secret pepper sauce that’s a blend of habanero and

LOCAL LIMELIGHT POLO IN THE PINES HONOREES BOND AND BUOY US

A Beautiful Friendship ARTICLE ANSLEY PRIDGEN | PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED

POLO IN THE PINES IS AN ANNUAL CHARITY POLO EVENT FOUNDED BY TINA FOWLER AND FAMILY, HELD ON OCTOBER 5 AND 6, BENEFITING CHILDREN’S HEALTHCARE OF ATLANTA, FOR PEDIATRIC CANCER RESEARCH. The seventh annual event and will be full of amazing additions such as a Veuve Cliquot sponsorship, Audi partnership, Atlanta Polo Brunch Festival, vendor market and much more. Lifestyle Publications has been a proud sponsor since the event’s inception. This year, the event ambassador is Madison Williams, a talented young singer/songwriter. Last year, the Polo in the Pines honoree was 5-year-old, Caroline Brewer. Madison and Caroline met in 2017 and formed an instant bond. Madison was the first girl Caroline met with a bald spot, and they both still have them. They are friends for life.  While they have seen each other regularly at events since they met, their bond continues to grow. Those who know young Caroline understand that she doesn’t hold still for long. She will willingly climb up into your lap or let you hold her in your arms, but she wiggles away before long. When Madison holds her, she remains remarkably calm. Madison and Caroline both have Grade III Anaplastic Ependymoma, a rare type of brain cancer, with only 50 cases reported each year.
