M.E. Lewis Elementary School
Sponsor Fundraising Activities 
to Support New State-of-the- Art Playground

On Saturday, October 28, 2018, M.E. Lewis Elementary School had a booth at the 2018 Pine Tree Festival with the goal of raising funds and awareness of the #Play it Up Bullpups Campaign.  The goal of the campaign is to raise money for a playground for the students of M.E. Lewis Elementary School.  With the generous help and support of Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee, the M.E. Lewis Playground Project raised $440 through donations and three ticket raffle drawings of items donated; an Emerson Digital Thermostat, a lunch for 2 at Gaby’s (the Ritz-Carlton’s Reynolds Lake Oconee lakeside restaurant), and a limited-edition Atlanta Braves Yeti Cooler.  Once again congratulations, to our three winners- Peggy Lewis, Mary Holsey, and Marben Bland.  (Read more)
