Time is Running out to see Winston Churchill Exhibit in Atlanta

Don’t miss the Winston Churchill exhibit at the Millennium Gate Museum located in Midtown Atlanta. The special exhibit, “The Art of Diplomacy – Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting” will close on February 1.

Rodney Mims Cook, Jr., the internationally known designer and National Monuments Foundation founder, the organization that built the museum, spoke about the exhibit yesterday at the Sandy Springs DAR meeting. Cook said, “January 24 is the 50-year anniversary of Churchill’s death.” It’s exciting that we have this collection of over 30 Churchill paintings in an exhibit outside of the UK at this time.

If you can’t get there by February 1, about 25% of the exhibit will travel to Rome, Athens and Savannah before leaving the United States on July 26, 2015.

Atlanta Greek Festival – 2014

Don’t miss one of Atlanta’s best events. The Greek Festival is this weekend, October 9-12 at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral on Clairmont Road. Tickets are $5 per adult and free for children 12 and under.

Tip #1: Don’t even try to park at the festival. Instead, go to the Century Center parking lot and take the shuttle bus. They run every few minutes and it is only a five-minute shuttle ride to the event.

Tip #2: Come hungry. Souvlaki. Pastitio. Moussaka. These traditional Greek dishes, and many more will be for sale. Also, you need to try the Greek pastries made by members of the congregation.

For more information, see their website at www.atlantagreekfestival.org.


Consignment Sale – St. James UMC

Don’t miss the consignment sale at St. James United Methodist Church located in Brookhaven on Peachtree-Dunwoody Road this weekend.

I’ve been a buyer at this consignment sale for years and it is definitely one of my favorites in the Atlanta area. They usually carry clothes for boys and girls up to size 14 – 16. Now that my children are older and they’re starting to outgrow children’s size clothing, I’ve found many books, games and puzzles to purchase.

The sale will be held this Friday, September 26 and 27 from 9:00 am -3:00 pm. On Saturday, select items will be discounted 50%. For more information, visit www.stjamesatlanta.org/consignmentsale.
