November Events at the Carnegie in Downtown Newnan

November is Long Term Care Awareness Month. The Carnegie invites you to bring your lunch and join us as Joel Sworney presents “What’s Your Plan: Alzheimer’s Awareness and Long Tem Care”. This informational program will provide education and advice on planning for Long Term Care.

Joel’s background is in Engineering but became committed to long term care insurance after the illnesses of several relatives. He has been a regional and national speaker about Long Term Care and has served on Georgia’s panel of experts concerning Long Term Care issues. Joel resides in Newnan with his wife and two children.

Come to The Carnegie for an informative seminar with local financial advisor Sam Madaris Jr. In “Retirement Has Changed, What’s Your Next Move?” you will learn how to organize and record your financial assets, set realistic goals for retirement spending, determine if you’re on track to reach your goals and what to do if you aren’t. This program will be Monday, November 15 at 10 A.M. Refreshments will be served.

Sam is a Newnan native who has over 20 years of financial planning, financial management, and executive management experience of Fortune 500 companies in the financial, technology, production, telecommunications, professional services consulting, program management, and healthcare industries.

This month’s Sack Lunch Cinema is Wednesday, November 17 at noon and will feature the recent release “Invictus”. Bring your sack lunch and we’ll provide the drinks and dessert.

Travel to Venice, Greece and Croatia through the Carnegie’s series ‘Armchair Travelers.’ The series speaker for the month of November is local traveler Faye Holzaepfel. The speaking engagement will be on November 19 at 2pm at the Carnegie.

Faye was born in Atlanta, Georgia and has been a Newnan resident for 5 years.

About the Carnegie

Carnegie is one of the most historically significant structures in downtown Newnan and was built in 1904. The building served as a library until 1987 when a new facility was constructed on Hospital Road. With its iconic lighted sign that states the ‘City of Homes’ on top of the building, citizens recognize the Carnegie when they drive through historic downtown.

The Carnegie was funded by the city of Newnan’s General Fund and partly by 2007 Special Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST). The Carnegie’s cost to be renovated was over $1.5 million dollars to the city. For more information on the Carnegie, please visit or email
