Tracy and Scott Kinney and daughters Lily and Madeline dressed as characters from Peter Pan, Stephanie Swanson’s new little baby, Annie, as a Cabbage Patch doll, Melissa and Blake Surber as Lisa Marie and Elvis, and Nancy Steele was so scary as a witch she could have stolen a part in “The Wizard of Oz.”
sweater challenge Amy Barnes, Sarah Bullington, Meredith Dixon, Erika Graus, Danielle Musolf and Amanda Persons all participated in the Marietta Loud Halloween Sweater Challenge created on Facebook by Lindsey O’Shields. Challengers wore a holiday-themed sweater in public and had a photo taken and posted to the Facebook group.
parties In late October at the sixth annual Cobb Arts Ball — themed Old Hollywood Glamour — patrons donned black tie, long gowns, kid gloves and glittering jewels like seasoned Hollywood icons. The Big Chicken Chorus set the festive mood as guests arrived in the lobby
of the Renaissance Waverly Hotel Galleria welcoming them with song. Champagne and cocktails were served during the reception where bids were placed on silent auction items. Dinner followed with a live auction, casino games and entertainment by Brookwood Split. Deb and Jim Budzinksi chaired the evening along with the Brumby family, who served as honorary chairs. Maryclaire and Rob Andres, Carolyn and Doug Chaffins, Liz Cole, Marcelle and Bill David, Mary Margaret and Clem Doyle, Linda Flournoy, Claire and Ron Francis, Melissa and Parker Gilbert, Julianne and Byron Long, Julianne and Boozer McClure, Dawn McEachern, Earl Reece, Ami and Wade Stephens, Jean Alice and Mayor Thunder Tumlin, and Kelley and Randy Weiner were among the shining stars that evening.
parties The Junior League of Cobb-Marietta recently hosted a fall dinner for sustaining Members of the League. Seventy ladies were treated to a beautiful evening
in the gardens at the Kennesaw home of sustainer Melissa Worley. President Renae Meyer, Sustainer Director Beth Johnston, and Sustainer Liaison Lisa Werginz welcomed them as the sun began to set. Attendees included Jeri Barr, Cathy Brooks, Cheryl Carpenter, Kathy Collar, Barbara Dawson, Judy DuPre, Martha Farrar, Ann Fowler, Rosemary Knox, Beth Johnston, Mary Anne Lanier, Beverly McCollum, Ginny Northcutt, Leigh Ann Rapp, Diane Vaughan, Pam Webb, Carol Worley, Jane Worley and Melissa Worley. The Sustainer Advisory Board and Pam Webb planned the event. It is definitely a small world. After a recent Strand Theatre Board of Director’s meeting, Liz Cole was pleasantly surprised to learn that fellow board member, Cobb Commissioner, and Delta pilot Bob Ott would be flying the plane for her upcoming trip to Italy. Liz and several friends, including fellow Mariettan Janie Maddox, enjoyed excellent service by Pilot Ott, and Liz even got to sit in the official pilot’s seat prior to departure.
