Guess who’s coming to breakfast? The Kennesaw-Acworth Optimist Club is hosting an “all-you-care-to-eat” breakfast complete, with pancakes, sausage, juice, coffee and table-to-table visits with the jolly old elf himself. Two seating options are available: 8 to 9:15 a.m.; and 10 to 11:15 a.m. Advance tickets are only $6 per person, and can be purchased online [click here] or at the Ben Robertson Community Center beginning October 17. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $8 per person (based on availability, space is limited). Children two (2) years of age and under do not need a ticket; however they must sit on an adult’s lap.
Santa Claus comes back to town for the Southern Museum’s Polar Express Adventure from 2:30 – 7 pm on December 10, the Saturday immediately following Day with Santa. The Museum will be transformed into a winter wonderland as attendees are greeted by the Polar Express conductor to begin their voyage. As adventure-seekers make their way through the festive landscape, the journey will culminate with the discovery of the North Pole before Santa’s helpers serve hot chocolate, light refreshments, and perform a dance routine to prepare for a visit from Santa himself! Experience a holiday-themed model train layout, various arts and crafts, and elves hard at work in Santa’s workshop along the way. Tickets may be purchased in advance and will also be available on the day of the event. For more information call 770-427-2117 ext. 3058 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit southernmuseum.org or facebook.com/southernmuseum for additional surprises and details as the event approaches.
Clear out your bookshelves and swap your old stories for new adventures! Kennesaw Parks & Recreation’s Book, CD & DVD Swap is a fun, FREE and easy way to freshen-up your library. Here’s how it works: Drop off your gently used hardcover or paperback books, music CDs and DVD movies on Thursday and Friday, January 26-27 and receive a ticket redeemable for the same number of items during “open swap” time on Saturday, January 28. Books must have their front and back covers intact and be in good condition. CDs and DVDs must be in their original cases and fully operable. Magazines, software, record albums, VHS or cassette tapes, adult content, unauthorized or illegal material will not be accepted. After the event, all unclaimed items will be donated to charitable organizations. This is not a book sale. It is a FREE media swap. Items will not be available for purchase.
Assistance is needed during the event with receiving, sorting, counting and bagging items. Volunteers must have the ability to bend, stoop, stand and lift up to 20lbs. Click here to sign up for a volunteer shift.
