Vinings is a very old community with a unique history. Called Crossroads at first, Vinings is where Hardy Pace operated a ferry that allowed people to cross the Chattahoochee River and where the Western & Atlantic Railroad headed north on its way to Chattanooga. Susan Kendall, the author, is the manager of the Vinings Library. She has been in Vinings for over 20 years and used her reference skills and acquaintances with the people in the community to compile a book on Vinings for Arcadia Press’ Images of America series.
The Vinings Historic Preservation Society will host a book signing with Susan Kendall on Thursday, May 16th from 6-8pm, at The Old Pavilion on Paces Mill Road.
Come and meet Susan and take home your own autographed copy! Signed copies also make great gifts for your friends, family and clients!
Each copy is $21.99 and cash, check and charge will be accepted at the event.
Parking is across the street in the Piedmont Medical building.

The City of Smyrna Parks & Recreation Department needs your input for a new master plan. If you were unable to attend one of the two public meetings held earlier this Spring, you have not missed your opportunity to participate and provide input. You have until May 15th to complete the survey.
Smyrna is currently involved in updating a system-wide parks and recreation master plan. When completed this plan will help the City set priorities for parks and recreation facilities for the next 10 years. As city leaders strive to improve the quality of life in Smyrna, plans of this nature are critical.
This process is being implemented by the Smyrna Parks and Recreation Department with the assistance of a team of professional consultants from GreenRock Partners. A primary goal of the planning process to ensure the success of the plan is to find out what park and recreation needs are desired by the citizens of Smyrna.
There are a total of 24 questions and it takes just a few minutes to complete.
Click here for the Smyrna Parks & Recreation Survey and fill in the blanks and help your Parks & Recreation Department meet your needs:
