GEORGIA NATURAL GAS CELEBRATES MLK LEGACY WITH OVER 300 STUDENTS

Georgia Natural Gas (GNG) celebrated the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by supporting a unique, educational opportunity exposing Atlanta area students to the Civil Rights Movement in American history.

More than 300 students from several Atlanta Public Schools’ campuses recently enjoyed the opportunity to see a special Georgia Natural Gas supported private screening of the Academy Award-nominated movie, “Selma.” After the screening, the students participated in a discussion with APS Superintendent Dr. Meria J. Carstarphen and interacted with Selma cast and crewmembers and some of the real life heroes of the civil rights movement.

GNG is proud to have been a longtime partner to Atlanta Public Schools through the larger efforts of Atlanta Partners for Education (APFE).


 


Winter has arrived! If you didn’t prepare in the fall, it’s not too late. Now is the time to make sure your doors and windows are properly sealed to keep temperatures in the home controlled.

Winter Recipe

Lemon Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwiches

INGREDIENTS:

• 4 oz. whole cream cheese, softened to room temp
• 2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
• Zest and juice of half a large lemon
• Salted butter, softened for spreading on bread
• Kosher salt
• Freshly ground black pepper
• 6 slices high-quality white or whole grain bread
• ½ large cucumber, seeded and thinly sliced, thoroughly dried with paper towels

DIRECTIONS:

In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, fresh dill, lemon zest and lemon juice. Add enough kosher salt and pepper to taste.

Generously butter each slice of bread. Lay slices with butter side up on a work surface. Evenly distribute the cream cheese mixture onto each slice. Arrange towel-dried cucumber slices on top of the first 3 slices of bread. Top with remaining bread. Slice off the crusts. If not serving immediately, wrap tightly in cling wrap and chill for up to 24 hours.

When ready to serve, slice into 4 triangles per sandwich.
