Mayor Eva Galambos is doing her farewell tour after serving two terms as Sandy Springs mayor.

Galambos is also the city’s first mayor and worked for years to create the city, which officially incorporated in 2005.

The Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber, the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts  and the Perimeter Business Alliance will honor Galambos at a breakfast on Nov. 18, according to a press release.

The event will be from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at The Retreat at Villa Christina, 4001 Summit Blvd, the press release says.

Attendance costs $20.

“We want to show our appreciation for Mayor Galambos and her outstanding service to our community,” said Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber President/CEO Tom Mahaffey said in the press release.  “Without her efforts for more than 30 years, Sandy Springs would not be the economic engine it is today.”

“It is our privilege to participate in this toast to Mayor Galambos, who has shown what an individual can do when they have a vision and can bring partners to the table,” said PCIDs President/CEO Yvonne Williams said in the press release.
