July 17, 2014 (Newnan, GA) — While most chambers of commerce struggle through their annual membership drive, The Newnan-Coweta Chamber will host a “Membership Event” that is like none other. For two and a half days, over 100 volunteers will work against the clock and against each other to sign up new Chamber members and create a greater community awareness of the important role of the Chamber.  The event is organized by Jimmy Cusano and a group called Your Chamber Connection.  Their specialty is high energy membership campaigns that allow volunteers to conduct “out of the box” membership fun while building the membership base. 

“It’s about business,” says Chamber Chair Sharon Szymanski.  “The Chamber is the business community.  This brings everyone together to build our Chamber.  It’s a membership-based organization and most people don’t like ‘membership drives.’” (MORE)

Rusty Sharp is Named Artist of the Month for February 2014 rusty.jpg

Being a member of a very creative family has always been  my motivation.  Sewing, crafts and painting everything from walls to furniture were natural hobbies for me.  With a degree in Agriculture, I taught school and then had a long career as a Flight Attendant for Delta Air Lines.

My husband, daughter and I moved to Coweta County nineteen years ago.  As a Master Gardener and 4-H Adult Leader Volunteer, I have become active in the community.  After retiring, I decided to become more serious about my art work.
