On Saturday, June 20, 2015, volunteers from Rogers & Hardin joined more than 300 members of Atlanta’s legal community for the 16th Annual ServiceJuris Day, an annual community service day hosted by ServiceJuris and Hands-On Atlanta. This year's ServiceJuris beneficiaries were within the Carver Homes in south Atlanta. The R&H project was at Thomasville Heights Elementary and involved landscaping and restoration of the garden.
Thanks to all of our volunteers for a successful outcome. Special thanks go to Tom Mew for his service as team leader for Rogers & Hardin and for his length of service as a ServiceJuris Atlanta Steering Committee Member.
