On June 13, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute held its annual Summer Social at Kennesaw State University Center. More than 200 people ages 50 and older attended the Italian-themed event that featured live music by the Society Express Band and a special performance by Courtney Loner.

Guests donned chef hats and Italian-style clothing. Attendees seen catching up with friends included Martha Chesser, Pearl Cole, Helen Hill and Joyce Tippens. On the dance floor, couples included Cheryl and Bill Clements, Maria and James Carr, Fran and Jim Massa and Angel Almodovar and Lilliana Mendoza.

Part of the program included the donation of pop tabs for the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House in honor of the late Mary Helen Sewell. People making donations included Charlee Bishop, James Carr, Gloria Clark, Gretta Dobson, Alice Kuzniak, Joann and Norman Neilsen and Doug Reid.

The fall social will feature the Spooktacular Ball on Oct. 24 at KSU Center. For more information, visit

The Theater of the Stars will present "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at the Fox Theatre from Tuesday to Sunday. The show features a youth choir made up of 50 children from around the metro Atlanta area.

Out of those 50 children, five of them attend the music theater program at Wood Acres School in east Cobb. They are Mackenzie Clark, Ben Drabik, Elizabeth Perryman, Makenzie Dixon and Emma Dowdy. For tickets, visit www.boxoffice

Fashion spotlight of the week: Stepping out with friends for lunch on a hot day, Kim Day cooled things off with her shades of sherbet tank and sweater ensemble and white denim.
