On June 2, neighbors on Cherokee Street near the Marietta Square welcomed Margie and Rick Bauer to the block. The Bauer’s are the new owners of the historic Montgomery House, a grand, old Southern home.

Summer called several neighbors out of town, but a nice group gathered along with a few families from neighboring Church Street who enjoyed meeting the Bauers as well as catching up with friends. Marsha and Karter Thomas and Judy and Paul Elliott hosted the fete at the Thomas’ lovely home.

Amy and Greg Norris, Adrian and Jimmy Pressley, Shelley and Ben Sanden, Jen Van Tyle, and Pat and Andy Yustat were among the guests.


On Saturday, cruise on over to the first Car Show sponsored by the Smyrna Jonquil Lions Club. The event featuring classic and antique cars will be conducted at Adventure Outdoors at 9 a.m. This event was rescheduled from May to June 15 due to inclement weather.

The Lions Club, started in Chicago, Ill., is the largest civic organization in the world, according to It has 46,000 clubs in 207 countries. The car show is the first major fundraiser by the newly chartered Smyrna Jonquil Lions Club. Proceeds benefit the club and its charities and purpose.

Even though the club is young, its members are passionate about its mission of community and humanitarian service. The club works with various local charities such as MUST Ministries. Another major focus of the Lions Club is that they provide resources for eye care and eye surgeries.

Funds raised by the Smyrna Jonquil Lions Club directly benefit the Cobb County community. 100 percent of the proceeds will be used for Smyrna Jonquil Lions Club projects such as providing eye exams to students at Campbell High School in Smyrna.

The event promises to be a day of family fun with cars, raffles and door prizes hourly. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote on the best car in show with an awards ceremony at 2 p.m. For more information call Michael Coolbroth at (770) 435-4417.
