By Michael Walsh

The chorus and quartets from the Stone Mountain Barbershop Chorus will present an afternoon of barbershop harmony to benefit the SE Gwinnett Cooperative Ministry during the “back to school” campaign to replenish their pantry shelves. 

The festivities will take place on Saturday afternoon, August 13, at Grayson United Methodist Church, 555 Grayson Pkwy, Grayson, GA 30017.  Doors will open at 3:00pm and the program will start at 3:30pm.  

Laura Drake, director of the local food cooperative, has listed the following items is being in particularly short supply – dry beans, canned fruit, canned chili, soup (tomato, beef, vegetable), grits and canned vegetables (except green beans).    Admission to the event is either $10.00 cash or 10 pantry items per person.   A similar benefit conducted in January 2015 resulted in the food cooperative receiving a record of both cash and pantry item donations. 

This is a wonderful way to enjoy an afternoon of the best in a capella harmony in the barbershop style while at the same time supporting the work of a popular local charitable organization.
