Dozens of students from Mount Vernon Presbyterian School honored the Sept. 11 National Day of Service by volunteering at the Sandy Springs Library. Students planted flowers, pulled weeds and hauled and layed down mulch. Their efforts were organized by Sandy Springs resident Sylvia McAdams, who is working to improve the library’s grounds following cuts in services.
