David Wilkerson

“We’re spending it with the family. We’ll have a family cookout and watch fireworks with my sister, Donna, and my two brothers, Michael and Clint, and my parents. My wife, Penny, and my two children will also be there.”

— State Rep. David Wilkerson, (D-Austell)

Sue Everhart

“I’m going to go to the parade on the Square in the morning, and then I’m going to a picnic. Then I’m going to come home and float around my pool and be real lazy.”

— Sue Everhart of east Cobb, former chairwoman of the Georgia Republican Party

Rose Wing

“I’m going to be waking up early and be over here at GOP headquarters to take our float over to put in the parade. We have a whole lot of dignitaries with us this year. Once the parade is finished, then I’m going over to the GOP barbecue. I’ll go home, rest up and go watch fireworks up on the Marietta Square.”

— Rose Wing of Marietta, 1st Vice Chair, Cobb GOP

Betty Gray

“I’m going to spend it with friends and my family at my house. We’re going to have hamburger and lettuce and tomato, and chocolate cake, and the whole nine yards!”

— Betty Gray of Mableton, former Cobb Board of Education chairwoman

Patti Pearlberg

“We’re going to the Marietta parade. I will have my 90-year-old father and my 2-year-old grandson — four generations. We’re going to have a family cookout. We’ll be watching the fireworks.”

— Patti Pearlberg of Marietta, attorney

Bob Prillaman

“We’re going to have lunch with a group of our friends. These are people we’ve known for many years. Then we’re going to run around and visit all our children. We’re just going to be a nuisance and bother all of them! I have a daughter in Atlanta and my son and another daughter in Marietta.”

— Bob Prillaman, retired senior vice president of Caraustar Industries
