With Fourth of July celebrations coming to a close, summer is slowly winding down. At least it seems to be as stores are replacing red, white and blue décor with binders and other back-to-school supplies. Even though shelves are already filling with pencils, notebooks and other small reminders that fall is around the corner, there is still plenty of time to stock your summer with fun. For ideas, take a look at these Cobb County events for the month of July.
Marietta– Are you interested in cars…or maybe just in a worthy cause? Sponsored by the Veterans After Action Coalition (VAAC) and the Women in Action Coalition (WIAC), an auto show will be held on July 19 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Jim Miller Park. Over 100 vehicles will be on display. In addition, the event will feature a variety of fun activities, as well as a live rock and roll band. The funds raised by the show will support the efforts of these organizations to help build a house for an area woman veteran. Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Metro Atlanta will play a helping hand in the construction process.
