For the second year, First Landmark Bank commissioned local artist Nita Burge to paint an oil on canvas scene depicting a local landmark. This year's card, "Remembrance," depicts a Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield cannon with U.S. flags in the background. The artist beautifully captured the emotion and beauty of the Kiwanis-led effort to erect more than 3,000 flags on the field.
First Landmark Bank reproduced this year's painting into greeting cards to be sold, with all proceeds going to The Extension and Cobb Landmarks and Historical Society. The Extension, located in Cobb County, offers in-house adult addiction recovery and counseling services. CLHS promotes the preservation of historic structures significant to Cobb County's rich heritage.
Gift-boxed set of 12 blank cards is $10 per box and available for sale at First Landmark Bank, located at 307 N. Marietta Parkway or calling (770) 792-8870 (while supplies last). View the original painting in person at First Landmark.
