A-Line Waist

These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.

Empire Waist

Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.

Drop Waist

A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.

Fit & Flare Dresses in Garden City

Shift Dresses in Garden City

Shift dresses are typically rectangular in shape and tend to be comfy and forgiving since they aren't fitted. Also called a column dress, the shift dress is a great choice for polished professionals needing a conservative, fashionable outfit for work.
These dresses look fabulous on women with athletic, lean shapes and women with an apple-like figure. This kind of dress doesn't work well with a belt, so ladies with an hourglass figure may not be able to show off their curves in a shift. Try pairing this dress with a nice pair of heels for a beautiful new look!

Wrap Dresses in Garden City

Wrap dresses are one of the most popular styles on the market, because they give ladies of most shapes and sizes a flattering, fashionable dress option.
If you have an hourglass, apple, or generally curvy body shape, you're going to love wrap dresses. This style of dress offers a natural waist while placing emphasis on your bust. Wrap dresses give you a balanced silhouette and, with a knee-length fit, are great for any type of color or style, both day and nightwear.

How to Find the Right Fit for Your Women's Top

When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

  • Hip Measurements: Measuring your hips is fairly easy. Take your measuring tape and use it to wrap around the widest area of your hips.
  • Waist Measurements: Take your measuring tape and place it at the very top of your hip bone. Wrap it all the way around your body. Try to keep your measuring tape in line with your belly button. For the most accurate measurements, stand up straight and breathe normally.
  • Chest Measurements: For an accurate chest measurement, take the end of your measuring tape and place it on the fullest area of your bust. From there, wrap the tape around your body, under your armpits, and around the blades of your shoulders. Then, wrap the tape tightly from the back of your body to the front, where you started.

On Tuesday, June 13, 2023, a District 8 Town Hall was held at Brock Elementary School for the purpose of sharing information on construction of the new K-12 facility in Garden City that will house Gould Elementary, Mercer Middle, and Groves High School on one campus. For those unable to attend the meeting, please find the presentation available in both English and Spanish below.

New K12 Multi School Campus.pdf

Nuevo Campus de Multiples Escuelas K-12.pdf

Questions from the June 13th District 8 Town Hall Meeting

Q1. Is there a separation between the elementary, middle, and high school students during lunch?

Yes, there will be a partition to separate the high school and elementary/middle school sides of the cafeteria. This partition is a permanent separation. There is a large window on the partition (pictured below) that will allow light to come through, however, students will not be able to see the other side of the cafeteria through the window. There are two controlled access doors on the partition as well, however, students will NOT be able to go through these doors.

Like many of our other sites, the multicampus will have perimeter fencing all the way around the building and controlled access exterior doors. Doors in areas that separate the high school from the elementary and middle school will also have controlled access to prevent students from crossing over.

Q3. How will the district handle transportation?

We cannot answer this question at this time. More details will be provided as we approach the completion of the building. Currently all students who live a mile and a half or more from their zoned school are offered school bus transportation.

Q4. When will the school be open?

We cannot answer this question at this time. More details will be provided as we approach the completion of the building.

Q5. Will the school uniform colors change?

School uniform colors are at the discretion of each individual school. At this time, there is not expected to be a change in uniform for Gould, Mercer, or Groves. Each school is expected to maintain their own identity.

Q6. What will the site be named?

At the July 2023 meeting of the Board of Education, Board members approved naming the site Gould/Mercer/Groves Multicampus, or G/M/G for short.

Q7. What spaces will be shared between grades?

Elementary and middle school students will share their side of the building and operate similarly to our K-8 schools. Elementary and middle school students will share a cafetorium, gym, and learning commons. High school students will be completely separated from elementary and middle school students as they will also have their own cafeteria, gym, and learning commons. The only space that will be shared by all three schools is the auditorium.

Q8. Has this K-12 model been tested in other districts?

Yes, our district looked at various schools across the nation that operate a K-12 model. A list of those we looked at includes:

Jenkins County Schoolshttps://www.jchs.com/Millen, GA
Presidio School


Tucson, AZ
Deer Trail School Elementary School & Deer Trail Junior-Senior High School



Denver, CO
Laura Irwin Elementary School & Riverside Middle/High School



Basin, WY
Burlington Schools K-12


Burlington, WY
Pinecrest Academy Sloan Canyon


Henderson, NV
Hillsdale Local School District



Jeromesville, OH
Lowellville Local School District


Lowellville, OH

We also currently have many schools with grades K-12 in close proximity to each other. Examples of this concept are Beach-DeRenne-Hodge, and Islands-Coastal-Marshpoint.

Garden City Rescue Mission in danger of losing their home; asking community for support


AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Garden City Rescue Mission is an emergency shelter that’s been operating out of Downtown Augusta for 22 years.

“On a daily basis we house people that come in off the streets. Some are addicted to drugs and alcohol, some are just having a hard time. They’re able to come in, get a bed, a lot of fellows haven’t had a shower in a long time, they get clean clothes,” said Executive Director, Patrick Feistel.

Providing people with a hot meal and a place to eat isn’t all the Garden City Rescue Mission does.

“So everything around this place pivots around the gospel being preached and seeing god work in people’s lives. We are seeing people get saved, we are seeing lives turned around, families put back together. When you see someone open up a bible, and they start understanding that it’s God’s word to them, and seeing their life light up, there ain’t nothing that can replace that,” said Feistel.

The mission has been operating in their location for rent free but now they need help to stay.

“We had a long term lease but the original owner, he went on to Heaven and now the board of directors over their properties have decided to liquidate and it’s understandable,” said Feistel. But all hope is not lost.

“They are giving us the sole opportunity right now to raise the funds by September 15th. We’ve got forty three thousand dollars and a long way to go and a short time to get there, and it might be a daunting task but God is well able,” said Feistel.

The goal is $495,000 dollars, and people from around the community have already been doing what they can to help.

Berean Baptist Church is hosting a yard sale on June 17th with proceeds going to the rescue mission.

“It’s vitally important. This program takes homeless men off the street, gives them a chance to start a new life, it gives them hope, and that’s something they don’t have,” said Berean Baptist Church Member, Susan Herrin.

For Berean Baptist Church Member, Susan Herrin, helping to save the rescue mission is personal.

“Once in my life I was homeless myself because of bad choices I had made, and if there were more programs like this in the city, and more funding available to start programs like this and offer this to the homeless, there would be a lot less people on the street,” said Herrin.

There’s still a long road ahead but the community’s support shows it’s not too late to rescue the Garden City Rescue Mission.

Before you know it, Thanksgiving and the holiday season will be upon us, and the problem of hunger is spotlighted even more.

Monday, Savannah Feed the Hungry got a head start on that problem with a little help from their friends.

“This is kind of a kickoff event for our upcoming holiday dinners and all," said Karen Williams, a volunteer coordinator at Savannah Feed the Hungry.

And just judging by the cars waiting in line outside the Empowerment Center in Garden City, it was a much-needed event.

Savannah Feed the Hungry and Georgia’s Own Credit Union partnered for a drive-thru meal giveaway Monday, distributing over 600 meal kits to families in need.

“Today, they’re getting stuffing, canned chicken, macaroni and cheese, green beans, corn, fruit cups," said Williams. "So they’re getting things to make a whole meal.”

This giveaway is totally different from anything Savannah Feed the Hungry has done in the past because Georgia’s Own Credit Union paid for all of the food and they provided all of the volunteers to pack those meals.

“It’s really special that we’re able to do this," said Jack Yarbrough, the president of the Southeast region for Georgia's Own Credit Union. "You never know when you may be on the other end of the need, so we’re just thrilled to be able to help.”

“It’s a great huge help and then not having to ask for donations from the community," said Williams. "But just for them to say don’t worry about it, we’re going to donate, we’re going to assemble, and we’re going to give.”

And Georgia’s Own Credit Union also gave of their time in a big way.

“We have almost 100 employees here just in the region and this part of the state for the event today, and it says everything about our employees," said Yarbrough.

Savannah Feed the Hungry will also hold its annual community dinners for Thanksgiving and Christmas at Enmarket Arena.

Those exact dates are still to be determined.

An electric vehicle infrastructure company, Voltera, is petitioning to build the region’s first EV truck charging station in Garden City.

The development still has yet to be approved by the city's planning commission, members of which raised questions about the development during a recent public meeting. The interest is a sign of the state’s burgeoning EV market, as well as a broader shift toward electric vehicle fleets across the country.

Read: the general development application for Voltera's proposed EV truck station

Voltera's proposed station, to be built on a 7.91-acre swath of land at 2305 U.S. 80, will not be for public use or passenger vehicles but will instead provide charging facilities for commercial trucks driving to and from the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) and nearby businesses.

These truck fleets will be performing drayage transportation, or the movement of goods across short distances since electric freight trucks do not yet have the capabilities to travel long-haul distances.

“Drayage is an ideal application for battery-electric trucks because those routes are typically shorter and well-suited to the current range of battery-electric trucks. This also means the air quality benefits of the trucks using this facility will be focused locally, to the benefit of residents and the community,” said Voltera Senior Program Manager Peter Thomas.

The charging station is intended to support commercial companies “making a commitment to more sustainable operations to reduce emissions to deliver better air quality for the community,” said Thomas.

Medium and heavy trucks contribute about 23% of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. according to the Department of Energy.

Thousands of companies in the U.S. have sustainability goals that include transitioning to low- or zero-emission transportation options, including large freight and logistics operators. According to an industry-leading survey of fleets nationwide, orders for battery-electric vehicles rose 640% from 2021 to 2022.

Voltera has several charging infrastructure projects in development across the country, including one near the nation's largest port in Long Beach/Los Angeles.

What will the station look like?

The general development plan shows 127 truck-charging stalls and 127 vehicle-parking stalls; a 4,800-square-foot operations building; and a 4,500-square-foot maintenance building.

The station will service primarily class 8 electric trucks. No chassis or cargo will be attached to the trucks when they come in for charging, said a Voltera representative.

Plans also include 12 pumps for “private light-duty charging” for passenger vehicles that belong to employees. Since the electric trucks take between two to six hours to charge, drivers may have to drop off and come back for their vehicles.

About five workers will be employed on the site.

Voltera likened the charging station to a gas station but for private commercial truck fleets and their employees, rather than the general public. A map of publicly available EV charging stations can be found on plugshare.com.

What were the planning commission’s issues?

This would be the first electric freight truck charging station for private commercial companies in the region. During a special planning commission meeting held on May 23, Garden City Planning Commission members debated whether the station would fit the characteristics of the site.

Garden City’s planning department – separate from the commission – had categorized the development as an auto service station (i.e. a gas station), which is a permitted use in C-2 zoning, according to Garden City’s zoning ordinance.

More:In neighboring towns, Georgia Ports Authority brings growth and jobs, but what is the cost?

However, commission members questioned the designation and pointed to the length of time the trucks would need to charge and the possible repairs performed on the vehicles.

Some members likened the area to a storage facility for trucks, which wouldn’t fall in line with an auto service station. And, if major repairs are needed, that could change the nature of the business to a truck terminal, a use allowed only in an industrial-zoned area.

“When you talk about mitigating emissions, I support that, but also at the same time. I'm concerned about the congestion as well as the wear and tear it’s having on our infrastructure,” said Planning Commission Member Gary Monroe .“There won’t be containers (cargo), but you are housing the trucks and it should be classified as I-1 (industrial-1) at best.

More:Which westside Chatham city is best positioning itself to handle growth? Garden City

A representative from Voltera argued that the development did not meet the standard definition of a truck terminal and that repairs would only be minor or incidental, which is typical of auto service stations.

“We are not conducting truck assembly, truck dispatching; we do not have loading or offloading of trucks; we do not have storage and handling of goods, materials; and we do not have major repair and service of trucks,” said Josh Yellin, an attorney with HunterMaclean, the law firm representing the applicant and property owner, B.G. Bazemore Holdings, LLC.

Commission Member Jeff Ashley questioned what would happen if one of the EV trucks caught fire and if the development would have a proper way to dispose of hazardous water runoff. He also pointed out that the development site is near the Palmetto State Armory, a firearms store.

Yellin clarified that while EV car battery fires do burn hotter, the charging station is a safe, regulated use, and that the company is happy to discuss water runoff issues with the fire chief and city staff as the development progresses.

“This isn't new in the sense that it's unregulated, it’s a new use for Garden City. But the federal and state oversight over this use is incredibly robust,” said Yellin.

Where to go from here?

The planning commission agreed to table the application for a future meeting. Some commission members expressed they still had questions about what services the development will end up providing and whether that would violate the C-2 zoning classification.

“It can be a very exciting time to be on the cusp of a brand new idea,” said Commission Member Jenecia Perry, “but as a functional board, sometimes we have to analyze everything and sometimes it takes us out of our element.”

More:Getting into the flow: VC firm launches program for Savannah Logistics Technology Corridor

A planning manager consultant working on the project, Denise R. Grabowski, acknowledged that Voltera will “probably go through a higher level of scrutiny” because of the novelty of the project.

“But it’ll give Garden City a blueprint on how to accommodate a growing industry in this region,” said Grabowski, “EV vehicles … is a high priority to the state of Georgia .. as the home to the Georgia Ports Authority, it’s something we’re certainly going to see more of.”

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has an Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan that was derived from the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. It was created in part to deploy a national network of EV charging stations throughout the state with $135 million federally funded dollars.

In a packed room full of residents, friends, family and dignitaries from throughout Georgia, Garden City held their inauguration of four incumbents to city council, including Mayor Bruce Campbell, who is the first Black person to be elected to the seat.

City Manager Scott Robider asked for visiting officials to give their remarks at the top of the program, and Sen. Derek Mallow and Savannah Councilmember Deitric Leggett were among those who spoke.

"I look forward to working with our mayor and council to work to remain strong in the city and move through the city through this next era of leadership that will bring it in line with other communities," Mallow said. "I think it's time for Garden City to be at the front of all our conversations, so it's not just Savannah and Pooler. It's Savannah, Pooler and Garden City."

Recently, Garden City began the process of annexing more land to try and balance the scale between the industrial sprawl and residential properties. The bill was vetoed, at the request of the city, after there were "faults" found in the wording, and some of the property they were trying to annex belonged to Savannah. But that doesn't mean the city's done trying.

Robider said they have plans on filing again within the first couple weeks of the legislative session, which starts next week, with the proper language.

"I'm really looking forward to the next administration," Leggett said. "We have partnerships in Savannah, and Garden City and Pooler that people have never seen before, and that's why a lot of great thing are starting to happen. This is not just one jurisdiction, or one municipality. This is one area that's leading this part of the nation."

Campbell, councilmembers for Districts 2 and 3, Debbie Ruiz and Natalyn Morris, respectively were sworn in by Judge Crystal Harmon. District 4 Councilmember Ricky Lassiter was sworn in by his uncle, Judge Jule Clifton Lassiter.

"I want to thank the people that believed in me enough to trust me with their city," Campbell said. "We've got a lot of work to do in Garden City and I'm going to give it 150%."

Morris and Lassiter also thanked the audience.

"As you all know, everyone says that your first term on city council is the learning term," Morris said. "You know what to do, you know what not to do now. Now it's time to get the work done."
