The Evenchick Family and friends invite you to enjoy their Haunted House...

Haunting for good causes


Haunted houses, haunted paths, ghosts, ghouls, graveyards and charitable donations go hand-in-bony-hand at this time of year… right? The combination works really well for some local families in Lilburn and Grayson.

Gourdgeous art

Snellville native, Tina Shumake Handrop, has been holding out on the art world. She has spent her life serving the needs of others. Family comes first for Tina – wife, mother, sister, daughter are all roles that she cherishes. As a postal employee and current postmaster of Snellville, Tina has had a full and rewarding career. As a wife and mother, she has rejoiced in the role of raising a family. It was her role as daughter that gave her the gift of art. Tina’s mother introduced her to the art of decorating gourds.

“Home of the Bears” is a charming nickname for Mountain View High School but it became more than a little ironic,

Reflecting on family and home – 70’s

I recently went to the Snell family reunion. I always look forward to our reunion, to see who has gotten older (ha, like myself), who has gotten married and of course who has had a baby or babies!  I love all of my family and I’m very proud to be a part of it.

NG3 Gwinnett!!… Character

NG3 Gwinnett!!… Character!
By NG3 staff

Character.  In the classroom, high school students learn about dangling participles, centripetal force, the pythagorean theorem, and The Battle of the Little Bighorn.  On the practice field, they are taught how to pick up a blitzing linebacker, when to throw to the cut-off man, how to elongate their stride in the 400, how to defend the pick-and-roll.  Our teachers and coaches have their hands full. At NG3, we work alongside these hard-working men and women to complete the picture for our next generation.
