Safety Awareness Seminar at Robison Terrace
We would like to give our appreciation to Shawn Vaughn and Officer Parker for hosting a Safety Awareness Seminar at Robison Terrace Apartments on Tuesday, April 17th at 2:00 pm.

Food Pantry: The residents would like to thank Mrs. Jennifer Eason and Mrs. Belinda Reed for donating twelve (24) count cases of canned vegetables to the Robison Terrace food pantry. Their support in helping maintain and upkeep the pantry is greatly appreciated! Also, thank you and appreciation goes out to Hopewell Temple C.M.E. Church with Pastor  C.W. Coleman II and Helping Hands Food Ministry for dropping food off at Robison Terrace for the residents on a monthly basis. Without their generous support, many of the Robison Terrace elderly and disabled residents would not have enough food to sustain them. Again, thank you to all who have shown their love and kindness by helping supply food.

A new food store and nail shop is now open n Beverly! The store is called "Kristi Food Mart" and the nail shop next door is named "Pinki by Kristi Nails".
