During the 2019 Primerica Convention, The Primerica Foundation announced a $50,000 grant to renovate Atlanta’s John F. Kennedy Park. This park, located near the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, was refurbished through Primerica’s partnership with the Legacy 53 Foundation.

Legacy 53 is a charitable partnership between the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee and other donors like Primerica dedicated to completing community projects in neighborhoods around the new stadium.

The John F. Kennedy Park project benefits more than 3,000 local residents, including children from a nearby elementary school. The updates included putting in a new full-size turf field and basketball court, constructing a lighted walking path, adding a shaded picnic area and installing new exercise equipment.

The unveiling of the renovations took place during a ribbon-cutting ceremony held in February. Primerica President Peter Schneider and EVP & Chief Reputation Officer Kathryn Kieser represented the Company at the event.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottom thanked all the donors at that ceremony. “The children who will play on these fields will grow to be something more than you all could ever imagine,” she said. “You probably cannot begin to understand what it means to this community to have a safe place and space that you long to return to.”

Happy family on a road trip in their car, rear passenger
 
Don’t let the lure of pricey theme parks and other expensive attractions wreck your budget this summer. There are plenty of free and low-cost entertainment ideas to fill up lazy, summer days when school is out. Here are some fun activities to keep school-aged children occupied that will give parents (and their wallet) a break:

  • Complete a DIY project. Think of how rewarding it will be to see an entire project through from start to finish in a day (a bench, a time capsule, a raised bed garden?) From determining what to create, gathering the materials and the actual work, you’ll have a full agenda for the day.
  • Make a movie. Write a funny, dramatic or suspenseful script, design and construct your set, assign acting roles, create costumes and perform it all while someone films it using the video feature on a smartphone. Finish the day by having a special viewing.
  • Head to the library. Head over to your local library to check out some books or movies. Look online for a calendar of children’s events or other happenings.
  • Picnic at a playground. Find a public park with a great playground that is within a drivable distance, pack a lunch and go enjoy the day. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
  • Find a festival. Look up fairs and festivals going on in your area and see what interests you. From food trucks to music to authors to art, find a gathering worthy of a trip and head out.
  • Create an obstacle course. Devise a series of obstacles (whether indoors or outdoors) to overcome. Use the activity to impart new skills (like a station to tie a shoe or to ride a bicycle) or just use your imagination and have fun.
  • Go berry picking. Look up nearby pick-it-yourself farms and hop in the car for a day trip. Establishments like these are usually family-run and charge by the amount you pick. Don’t forget the bug spray!
  • Do some yoga. Break out some yoga mats (or towels) and do some yoga stretches. If you’re inexperienced, stick with beginner’s poses.
  • Have a cultural day. Learn about a different country or culture by listening to music, making crafts, dressing up, watching films and preparing unique food from the country or culture of your choosing.
  • Paint a portrait. Pick up some inexpensive art supplies at a dollar store or art supply store (canvases, paints and brushes), set up a makeshift easel and let your creative juices flow. This can be done from a photograph, or someone (or some pet) can be a live model!

Tens of thousands of Primerica representatives and their teammates are expected to convene for several days in Atlanta for the 2019 Primerica International Convention.

The company’s flagship event – which happens every two years – celebrates its return back to its home base state after the 2017 Convention was held in Indianapolis during the construction of the new Mercedes-Benz stadium.

“Our convention provides a great opportunity for us to celebrate our accomplishments and set the course for the remainder of the year. We expect the event to bring together tens of thousands of our teammates to Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium where they will learn from dynamic leaders, attend workshops and seminars, and enhance their skills,” Glenn Williams, Primerica’s CEO said, in a press release. “The convention will help us maximize the many opportunities that lie ahead for Primerica, our clients, and our representatives. Primerica remains ideally positioned to meet the evolving needs of middle-income families across North America now and for years to come.”

Business sessions hosting upwards of 50,000 will be held in the stadium arena, and the nearby Georgia World Congress Center will house exhibit halls and business-building workshops hosting tens of thousands of Primerica representatives from all across North America.

Primerica’s first-ever Convention was held in 1977 at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama.

Read about the enormous impact this year’s Convention will have on Atlanta in this press release by the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau.
