Roane Choral Society will present “A Child Again at Christmas” at 7 p.m. Nov. 22 at the O’Brien Theatre on the main campus of Roane State Community College.
“As we capture the magic of Christmas through the past and present, this concert would be incomplete without the appearance of the Roane Choral Society children’s choir and youth choir, as well as the recipients of the RCS Music Education in Schools Grant,” said Julianne Bailey, a member of the Roane Choral Society.
A partnership between Second Harvest Food Bank and the Boy Scouts of America Great Smoky Mountains Council’s Scouting for Food program was recently given a financial boost in the form of a $60,000 grant from the Boyd Youth Education Fund of the East Tennessee Foundation.
Now, with additional financial support, this ongoing long-term partnership will be able to expand the Scouting for Food drive, which occurs in February, and it will fund opportunities for Boy Scout education and leadership.

Alumni of the former Wheat High School and old Roane College, as well as former residents of the former Wheat community, will celebrate their annual homecoming at the George Jones Church on Oct. 5.
The service will begin at 11 a.m., with A.L. Turpin bringing the message. A basket lunch will be served at noon under the nearby tent.
The community of Wheat, situated near the K-25 Site, was first known as Bald Hill because all of the timber had been cut to construct houses.
