What do Marry Poppins, Nanny McPhee and Judi Curtis have in common? They are all beloved nannies.

Parents and children bid farewell to the longtime Marietta nanny on Sept. 28. Families gathered at the concert on the Marietta Square to honor Curtis who is moving to Wisconsin to be near family.

Saying goodbye were Emily and Brooks Broeckelman, Sarah and John Bullington, Amy and John Goodman, Britt and Scott Hennessey, Caroline and Chris Spencer, and April and Scott Wright along with their children toasting “Nana” whom they all adore.


On Sept. 21 the Marietta Charter Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association honored Mitzi Moore, owner of Sundial Plumbing, as Business Person of the Year. She spoke about her background in plumbing that began as a teenager when she visited sites with her father, owner of the former Sundance Plumbing. She said that he taught her the business from the ground up.

Moore bought Sundance Plumbing when her father retired and changed the name to Sundial Plumbing. Sundial is the largest plumbing company in Georgia owned by a woman.
