DeKalb library hosting "Star Wars" party
The Hairston Crossing branch of the DeKalb Public Library will hold a Summer of Star Wars party this weekend at the library.
Attendees can have their pictures taken with Storm Troopers, create origami Yodas and participate in a costume contest at the event.
The party runs from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 30 at the branch, 4911 Redan Road, near Stone Mountain. The event is free and open to the public, but the library asks that groups of five or more reserve space by calling 404-508-7170.
Members of the Southern Baptist Convention’s disaster relief organization began making plans Tuesday at the group’s North American Mission Board office in Alpharetta to send volunteers and supplies to areas of Oklahoma hit hard by Monday’s devastating tornadoes.
