On July 28, the B6 mixed doubles tennis team that plays out of Marietta Country Club held its end of season party at the Kennesaw home of Carole and Don Wise. Don served up tortas, his famous Mexican-style pork sandwich. Guests brought their favorite appetizer to accompany the main dish. The net effect of this party was that all had a great time.

Joining the Wises were Eloise and Bill Adams, Penny and Robin Burruss, Linda and Steve Castle, Sandy and Mark Diehl, Sandra Kellner, Ellen and Shep Long, Natalie and Allen Miller, Matty McCabe, Lauren and David Sinclair, Marie and Neil Sisson, Helen Slagle, Jennifer and David Vandevate, and Kelley and Randy Weiner.
