On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to offer congratulations and thanks to the Port City Bar Association on its successful partnership with the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and other community volunteers to come to the aid of a local family during the Christmas holiday season.
Led by Attorney Christopher Middleton, these Savannah lawyers and fraternity members enlisted the support of local educators and businesses to renovate the first floor of the home of a single mother and her four children, which had been damaged by a kitchen fire. Thanks to the volunteer efforts of the group, the restoration was completed within five days, along with refinished floors, new furniture, a Christmas tree and gifts for the family.
All Georgia lawyers can be proud of our colleagues from the Port City Bar Association and their fellow Savannah community leaders for this exceptional demonstration of service to others. Keep up the good work!

President, State Bar of Georgia
