While their mother held the annual yard sale at their home, LizAnn and Maddie set up a lemonade stand. Additional items for sale included soft drinks, water and cookies.
Their father sat them down early Saturday morning and gave them a brief business lesson on supply and demand — he was the supplier and hoped there was a demand for the girls’ product.
LizAnn took on the marketing end of the project by making signs while Maddie focused on making lemonade and operations. They raised $55 that will be added to the fund to help build families. Brent said, “We couldn’t be prouder. They worked very hard all day.”
The foundation recently celebrated the birth of twin boys it sponsored. Blessings of Grace is a 501(c)3 via the Cobb County Foundation that recently added Acworth Mayor Tommy Allegood as its executive director. For more information, search “Blessing of Grace” on Facebook.
Polk Street Players will hold open, non-equity auditions for the November production of “Winter Glory,” a farcical British comedy by Peter Coke. The comedy portrays the roguish activities of a group of civilized retirees that led to an unexpected conclusion.
They are seeking five women ages 55 to 70, one woman 35 to 45, one woman 20 to 25, two men (one will have a non-speaking park) 55 to 70, and one man (non-speaking part) 40 to 50.
Auditions are Aug. 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. and Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to noon. There will be cold readings from the script.
St. James’ Episcopal Church is located at 161 Church St. Parking is available off Polk St., west of the church. Enter through the courtyard facing the railroad crossing and follow the signs.
Rehearsals will be in September and October. Performances are Nov. 2 to 17. For more information, contact the director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
