The Grand Theatre summer camps have offerings for kindergarten graduates through 12th-grade students.
School is officially out for the children in Bartow County and the city of Cartersville, and now parents face the challenge of finding activities for their kids over the summer. Terri Cox, program director for the Grand Theatre, has a suggestion for those precocious and energetic kindergarten and first-graders, those rambunctious and entertaining elementary kids, and those talented and outgoing middle and high schoolers — theatre camp! When talking about the content of the camps, Cox said, "Each camp provides the students with activities in music, movement or dance, and acting. We begin with the basics in the younger camps and take them through a full-blown Broadway production for the high school students." Cox added many theatre camp …

Enjoy a family-friendly atmosphere the first Saturday of each month at Friendship Plaza.
Starting this Saturday and running the first Saturday of each month through August, the Downtown Development Authority begins its Summer Concert Series in conjunction with the Tom Clayton Memorial Car Cruise. And maybe the best part about this monthly downtown offering – it’s free. The concert series will kick off Saturday at 7 p.m. with Myke Carroll and Arc Light. It has been said the group is one of the best kept secrets in the north Georgia mountains. Hailing from Blue Ridge, this three-man band plays an eclectic mix of music, from big band and jazz to blues and hard rock to country. What they like to call it — take tunes from the 60s and the 70s and "twist them up a notch." Myke Carroll once said, “I have worked with a few famous …

This event is set each year for five years to coincide with the beginning and end of the War Between the States.
“Here was the greatest and most moving chapter in American history, a blending of meanness and greatness, an ending and a beginning. It came out of what men were, but it did not go as men had planned.” Perhaps there is no better way to open Civil War Comes Alive, the inaugural event between the Booth Western Art Museum and the Bartow History Museum, than with those words from The Coming Fury echoing in our minds. The attack on Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, by the provisional Confederate forces at Charleston, SC, is considered the opening engagement of the American Civil War. Booth Museum Executive Director Seth Hopkins said the musuems wanted to create an event that would coincide with the 150th year anniversary of the start of the …

Organizers hope to raise money, which will then be awarded to local students.
Aristotle once said, “Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.” The saying is as true today as it was in ancient Greece. With the economy still lagging and unemployment in Georgia more than 10 percent, more and more people are finding the need to expand academic horizons in hopes of broadening employment options. And the one thing everyone learns about going to college – it isn’t free. That’s why Etowah Scholarship Foundation came into existence back in 1982 and has been growing ever since. Its mission is to inspire, encourage and support the students of Bartow County in their pursuits of post-secondary education through financial aid, advising and scholarships. In the past 29 years, the foundation has awarded …

Cartersville Schools Superintendent Howard Hinesley indicates that his system's schedule the next two school years could be in line with that of Bartow County's schools.
Cartersville and Bartow County schools could operate on the same calendars the next two school years after wrapping up two-year calendars that differ this spring. At Thursday’s Cartersville Board of Education meeting, members approved a committee recommendation that the proposed 2011-12 and 2012-13 calendars be available for public view and comment. Superintendent Howard Hinesley said those calendars are “100 percent consistent” with the proposed Bartow schools calendars. The board also:
The museum starts the new year in the 1869 courthouse, which is renovated and open to the public.
It was a natural fit for the Bartow History Museum to move from its cramped location on Museum Drive to the fully renovated, two-story 1869 courthouse a few hundred feet away. The building is a walk through Cartersville's history all by itself, having been built just after the Civil War as the first courthouse of the community. It played host to several businesses through the years, including a furniture retailer and a roller-skating rink. Entering on the first floor, you'll find that the expansive lobby holds a gift shop full of books, pottery and other items that reflect the history of Bartow County. The first floor also contains a multimedia-ready lecture room capable of hosting audiences of up to 50, a small kitchen to support events …
