2012 EDITION


to your 2012 Answer Book® Welcome to our 42nd Answer Book®!


Welcome


We published the first one in 1992 and even registered the name. It is my understanding that if you looked hard enough, you would be able to find a copy of that first Answer Book® somewhere in the Library of Congress!


As


usual, this issue contains a wealth of useful information including new maps and a new 18 month calendar. We created a combined greenway map so


that now you will have the only comprehensive map that gives you the important information about all the greenway from Roswell to Forsyth County. I am excited about that. We included our “Best of North Fulton & South Forsyth” again this year and I believe this one is even better than last years. We required that everyone had to register to vote this year which prevented people from voting more than once. With more than 750 votes cast, I believe that the utility of the results is substantial and greatly enhanced. If you need a highly rated local good or service, our list can be a very useful resource. So, now we start working on our Medical Answer Book® which will publish in a few months. If you are in the healthcare industry in any fashion you’ll want to give us a call and be included. Call 770- 442-3278 x 106 and ask for Lynn. We are grateful to the cities of Alpharetta, Roswell, Milton and Johns Creek for participating in The Answer Book®. A lot is going on in our cities – really good things – and the mayors and their staff, elected officials and other agencies are making it happen. We all should be very proud of where we live. Finally, in addition to home-delivering 45,000 copies in the


area, we print additional copies and make them available to any businesses, including real estate offices, who wish to use the Answer Book® to promote our fair cities or their business. Just come by and pick some up – free.
