JOHNS CREEK, Ga. Just as the city has done for six years now, Johns Creek elementary schools have been asked to have students submit their designs for Christmas cards that will in turn be sent to soldiers overseas.

"It got started as an idea from the Founders Day Committee," said Johns Creek Chief of Staff Patty Hansen. "Initially, it was a way to reach out to the schools in the city when Johns Creek was incorporated.

"It has been very successful, and it is growing every year," she said.

In the first years, the city would send out different designs, because the City Council could never decide on just one winner.

But they switched to a montage of all the selected cards because there are so many. This year, 18 designs are on the cards to servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Mark Misenheimer has been super donating his time to design and create a montage of the cards," Hansen said.
