CEO Ellis hosts Family Dinner for Residents
Families

In commemoration of Family Day, A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children, DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis and other county officials served dinner and ate with community families yesterday at Redan Recreation Center, 1839 Phillips Rd. in Lithonia.  

The event gave parents the opportunity to spend quality time with young children and teens at the county’s newest family-centered facility.

Family Day – A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children, an initiative launched in 2001 by the Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA), is a national movement to remind parents that frequent family dinners make a difference in the lives of their children.  According to studies, the parental engagement fostered at the dinner table can be a simple, effective tool to help prevent substance abuse in kids.
