The GJCAE has created and financed the promotion of the entry into the international America In Bloom contest to recognize Wake Forest, N.C. as one of the most beautfiul, livable towns in America.
Through the use of the Google Adwords grant the GJCAE is using some of the advertising spend to promote Wake Forest's entry in the competition. See video below contributed by videographer, Jeff Yentzer, to the effort. The beauty of Wake Forest and the Wake Forest HerbFest.
The motivational message and motto of The Graham Johnson Cultural Arts Endowment is "Life Is For The Living". This video explains how that became our inspirational message.
The HerbFest is the principal fund rasier for the programs the Graham Johnson Cultural Arts Endowment sponsors.
Thanks to our local "Downtown Alan Brown" he produced this video on how the HerbFest has become a welcome event for the community and here is the video as aired throughout N.C, Va. and Tenn.
Its with such great volunteers as Alan Brown that the GJCAE becomes known and the events/groups/projects get attention to the cause.
The Story of Graham Johnson
The Graham Johnson Cultural Arts Endowment was formed in memory of and to honor the life of Graham Patrick Johnson. Graham was a student at Franklin Academy in Wake Forest, North Carolina and a very special person. His life and how he lived it, and his love of the arts are the inspiration for this organization.
