The 1950s themed tree featured spinning toy ornaments dangling from its branches along with CDs painted to resemble old 45-rpm records. A poodle skirt with finger-knitted poodle-clip dogs decorated the bottom.

After school programs at Robert J. Burch Elementary and Fayetteville Intermediate also had trees at the event. Proceeds benefitted The Joseph Sams School, the Breast Cancer Survivors Network, Embracing Military Families, and Promise Place.

Peachtree City Wildlife Reminder

The City would like to remind everyone that our natural areas host a variety of wildlife, including deer, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, foxes, and armadillos.  During the fall season, many animals are in rut and are much more likely to be visible.  While negative interactions with our local wildlife are rare, please take precautions, including keeping small children and pets away, even if the animal is in your yard. 

PTC Police Department: Scam Alert

The PTC Police Department has released an alert about a confirmed scam that has been occurring frequently in our city and throughout the surrounding areas. 

Scenario 1 - Victims selling items via the Internet receive payment with a check for an amount significantly more than the asking price, and the buyer asks the victim to deposit the check and wire a third person the difference. The checks are fraudulent, and victims do not find out until after wiring the money. 

Scenario 2 – The victim receives an email about a business opportunity or an easy way to make some extra “holiday money,” and all that is required is to cash a check, wire most of the money to the offender, and keep the remainder.
