On Thursday, January 9, 2020 the Rotary Club of North Atlanta dedicated a bench at the Ashford Dunwoody Cowart Family YMCA in honor of Spurgeon Richardson, a long time Rotarian and past President and CEO of the Atlanta Convention and Visitor's Bureau. Spurgeon passed away October 18, 2019. Spurge and NARotary Club member Mary Frances have been long time supporters of Rotary and the YMCA, along with many other community organizations.  This bench is given to honor their dedication to community service and to commemorate the life and accomplishments of Spurgeon.
