Kudos to members of Harrison High School Band in west Cobb. Harrison band students packed over 15,000 meals to be shipped to orphans in Haiti. The meals were combined in a container along with meals packed from other groups.


Centerstage North will present Christmas At Sweet Apple by Phillip DePoy on Dec. 13-21 at The Art Place Mountain View, 3330 Sandy Plains Road in Marietta. This is a heartfelt collection of holiday stories from the pen of acclaimed Georgia writer Celestine Sibley. Tales of Jingles the dancing cow; Miz Tippens, the “hero” of Snout Island, and other colorful characters are told to the accompaniment of traditional and original holiday music. A family favorite!
