Saturday, December 8, 2018

The 18th Annual Sleighbells on the Square 5k/1k/Tot Trot will be held this year on Saturday, December 8th. This festive event for the whole family takes place on the Marietta Square where the 5k will start and finish. The race attracted more than 1400 registrants last year, raising more than $30,000 for the Cobb Children’s Emergency Fund. The Fund provides emergency grants to Cobb County households facing financial emergencies or crises. The Fund provides support for Cobb families in need in areas that are often not addressed by traditional charities, assisting with utility bills, clothing, medicine, housing, to help local families get back on track.
Race day activities include appearances by costumed characters, face-painting for the kids and jingle bells for runners’ shoes. The Strand Theatre will open its doors to runners, friends and family for a quick warm-up, coffee, hot chocolate and a free movie for the kids. Festive holiday attire is encouraged. Strollers and dogs are allowed. The 5k starts at 8:30am, the 1k at 9:30am, Tot Trot at 9:45am and the awards ceremony is at 9:50am. Free and Paid Parking is available in the parking decks and lots around the Marietta Square.
The 5k is a chip-timed Peachtree Qualifying race.
Registration is available online at Active.com.
The cost for registration is $20 for Youth, $25 for Adults through November 25th.
$30 for registration November 26- December 6. Tot Trot registration is just $10 through Dec 6.
Race day registration is $35 for the 5k and 1k and $15 for the Tot Trot.
There is also registration for Phantom Runners for $30 to support in spirit and get a t-shirt, but not run.
All participants who register before Nov 25 are guaranteed a long-sleeve technical t-shirt.

Monique Shaw’s “Things We Didn’t Tell” The Play @ Sewell Mill Cultural Center
Dec 8 @ 3:00 pm
Monique Shaw's "Things We Didn't Tell" The Play @ Sewell Mill Cultural Center | Marietta | Georgia | United States

This powerful dramatization follows Nathan’s journey as he confronts the “monster in the basement.” Sexually abused as a child, Nathan has tried to suppress the memories of his abuse and has never told anyone about what he experienced as a child until now. For years, he’s suffered from depression, alcoholism, and emotional turmoil which led to his life spiraling out of control.

This dramatization sheds light on a subject that is rarely discussed; sexual abuse on males and the impact it has on the victim, as well as future generations.

Written, directed, and produced by Monique D. Shaw

Rated: Parental guidance recommended; contains profanity and discussions about sexual abuse.

The Plot:
A Comedy Whodunit!
Christmas, 1977, is only three weeks away, and the ladies of the Charitable Sisterhood are preparing for Second Trinity Church’s annual Christmas Spectacular … but they’re having trouble staying focused on their preparations because there’s a criminal on the loose—someone has stolen the baby Jesus figure from his place in Second Trinity’s nativity scene. Sisterhood leader Bea Littleton is certain that the culprit is her longtime rival, Lucille Orton, from First Salvation (a place of extremely strict beliefs just up the road). Bea and the other sisterhood members decide that they need help getting to the bottom of things, and they call in honorary member and private investigator Janet Murchison to delve more deeply into things and see if she can determine who the perpetrator is. By show time, Janet is starting to think she knows exactly who is guilty of what … but the truth can’t be revealed until the end of the Spectacular. As a result, we watch from both onstage and backstage, as the sisterhood performs sacred songs and satirical skits (after all, where else does Santa meet the Wise Men at the manger?). The fun doesn’t let up until the hilarious revelation at the show’s climax, which leaves the audience and the sisterhood filled with the very best spirit of the Christmas season.
