This week we have taken time to acknowledge not only the holiday season but also the birthday of Joel Chandler Harris. Last Sunday we held our annual Victorian Holiday Party. The home was decorated in holiday grandeur. “Children of all ages were captivated by our storytellers throughout the day.” And certainly what’s a party without music? Our featured harpist, Kimberly Walker of the Atlanta Urban Youth Harp Ensemble, and esteemed carolers from the Gate City School of Excellence set the tone by filling the house with songs of the season.

Certainly, we cannot celebrate in the month of December without saying Happy Birthday to Joel Chandler Harris! December 9th marked Harris’169th birthday, and yes indeed there was birthday cake! Guests and friends gathered around the cake as Harris’ great-great-granddaughter, Annette Shakespeare gave words of cheer and good tidings for the occasion. Happy Birthday rang loud amongst the crowd as we approached one of the most favored portions of our annual party.
