Silent Night, The Atlanta Opera: November 5-11

 

 

 

If you want a classy night out on the town and something culturally enriching, this is a great choice. The title “Silent Night” refers to more than the Christmas carol in this case. This opera tells the story of how, during some of the worst fighting of World War I, the British and Germans declared a truce and spent Christmas together in peace. This is being held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. You can get ticket information by clicking here.

 

 

 

Block Party, Smyrna Public Library Meeting Room: November 15

 

 

 

This event is held on the third Tuesday of each month at the library. It’s designed for children from infancy up to two years of age. The “block” in this block party refers to toys, which are set up to help children learn through play. It runs from 10:30am until 11:00am and, if you have some time to take the kids, it’s a great way to meet other parents in the community.

 

 

 

Maker Monday, Pollinator Ornaments: November 21

 

 

 

It might be heading into winter, but people are considering next year’s gardens already. The Smyrna Public Library will hold its Maker Monday event on November 21 and you’ll get a chance to make a pollinator ornament for Christmas and learn a bit about how to create a garden that’s friendly to pollinators like bees and butterflies. This event runs from 4:00-5:00pm and, while you’re getting to know the neighbors, you can also get to know others in your neighborhood who are garden enthusiasts to the point that they’re already getting ready for the next season!
