Birthday was unforgettable
To the Editor:
Thank you to everyone who attended my 90th birthday open house. I really enjoyed seeing and talking with you all. It sure brought back lots of memories and made the day truly unforgettable!
Thanks for helping with clothing drive
To the Editor:
The Foster & Buick Law Group LLC would like to thank all those people who turned out to donate gently used winter clothing for our bi-annual Winter Clothing Drive this past month. Once again the DeKalb County community answered the call to assist the less-fortunate in our area. The firm was able to deliver approximately 20 boxes and bags filled with dozens of winter coats, hats, gloves, scarves and boots. Several donors also sent over sweaters and sweatshirts and other articles of clothing necessary when the cold weather comes to town.
It was a great kick-off to the holiday season for our staff and attorneys to collect, wash, sort and deliver these items to Feed’Em Soup’s headquarters. Feed’Em Soup has a community closet that opens during their meals for those in need to take what they need at no charge, and we feel privileged to have helped them.
Thank you, DeKalb County, for your continuously generous hearts, and for making our second bi-annual Winter Clothing Drive a success. Happy Holidays.

Reflecting on 35 years in the community
To the Editor:
2012 is rapidly coming to a close. As Studio One reflects back on the anniversary of our 35th year we feel it is important to honor and thank all of those individuals who have contributed to our success.
I have spent more than half of my life in this business, in this community, which is where I was born and raised and where I raised my own family. First as The Arrangement, and then as Studio One, we have been in four different locations; each with a story to tell of the challenges and successes that we experienced as we continually strived to provide this community with salon and spa services that help people look and feel better about themselves. Our team’s success has been built on the unique and lasting bonds we have built with our clients and each other that enrich our lives every day.
The primary purpose of this letter is to recognize and applaud my incredible staff. It is important to let you know about these amazing women. I have had the privilege to watch them grow and develop into the strong, successful women they have become and have learned so much from them along the way. Every day they understand that what they do makes a difference, they recognize the benefits of continuing education and understand that together what we have to offer far exceeds that of each individual.
My staff has made incredible donations of their time, energy and talents to benefit our local community. Whether donating their skills for community service through involvement with local causes and charities, having the incredible opportunity to style hair at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, or participate in hands-on training at the Philip Pelusi training center in Pittsburgh, they are all an inspiration to our profession.
As the end of our 35th year draws to a close, what I feel most is gratitude to my team and to this community, for the many opportunities that you have given me to learn and develop into a nationally recognized salon and spa. With the support of my staff, we will continue to provide this community with the highest quality professional services. As I thank you for 35 wonderful years, I am grateful for the opportunity to have my staff be a part of the history of women in DeKalb County.
