Recently, the directors and officers of First Landmark Bank in Marietta played host to a cocktail reception in celebration of the bank’s fifth anniversary.

Immediately prior to the reception, the bank’s shareholders gathered for the annual shareholder meeting where Chairman John Moore announced that the board had voted to name Ron Francis as Chairman of the board and added CEO to President Terry DeWitt. (Moore will serve as vice-chairman.)

Among those attending: Bank Director Steve and Terri Cole, President/CEO Terry DeWitt and Teresa DeWitt, Felton Hagood, Becky and Darryl Higginbotham, Bill Paden, Sarah and Ralph Farrar, Chairman of the Board Ron Francis and Claire Francis, Bank EVP Terri Bunten Guthrie and Jim Guthrie, Peter Hungerbuhler, Jim Johnson, Gregg Litchfield, Bank Director Nick and Angela Massengill, Carolyn Mills, Immediate Past Chairman of the Board John Moore and Robin Moore, Bank Director Al Pond, Bill Poston, Chris Poston, Strib Stribling, Bank Director David Swales, Cameron Watson, and Steve Waldrip.


You need to get there — Marietta Square’s newest restaurant The Butcher The Baker. New owners Katie and Micah Pfister and Sterling Wharton conducted a private opening on April 16. Lucky guests sipped on specialty cocktails and tasted some of the wonderful dishes at the farm to table restaurant. The Pfisters’ resumes include experience at Bacchanalia, Empire State South, and Restaurant Eugene in Atlanta — surely a recipe for success!

Among the scene: Deanna and Alton Brown, David Johnson, Mazi Mazloom, Vickie and Bill Poston, Mary Ansley and James Southerland, and Jean Alice and Mayor Thunder Tumlin.


The Cobb Wind Symphony presents its Young People’s Concert on May 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. at Lassiter Concert Hall, Lassiter High School in Marietta. The concert is also for those young at heart. Hear the symphony, small ensembles, and lots of great music. Children are encouraged to wear costumes. Scouts can earn credit towards badges.
