On Sunday, July 21, Cedar Hill Enrichment Center and Veteran’s Heart Georgia hosted a town hall meeting to announce the alliance between the two nonprofit organizations.

Members of the community heard about upcoming retreats for veterans and military service people. The program launched Aug. 24 with a day program for a mixed gender group.

The program included mindfulness meditation, Yoga and iRest, horticultural therapy and therapeutic drumming. It happened at Cedar Hill Enrichment Center, a nonprofit in north Forsyth County.

Over time, the retreats will include caregivers and families of veterans.
