Fundraisers set to help Morgan Clift with medical expenses

Kelly Crisifulli, Adrianna Brannon, Tyler Nobles, Zack Walseman, Connor Butler and Tony Heard rehearse the play "The Foreigner" which will be performed this weekend at  King George High School.

King George County Schools Theatre department defines itself as a theatre of purpose. Each year King George High School Theatre Department proudly supports a charity or cause. In the past we have collected clothes and canned food for King George Social Services, last year we donated $5000.00 to the Win for Wesley relay for Life Team.

This year we are privileged to support one of our own. In October a member of our Theatre family, Morgan Clift, was severely injured in a car accident. Last year this 17 year old student stole the show as “Ma” in The Grapes of Wrath. Despite the fact that it was her first play, she worked hard and performed beautifully. She came through for us and now we want to perform for her. We will have several opportunities to assist Morgan this year.

Snow Queen at Santaland

Chloe Amrhein was too busy running to sit and listen the Snow Queen, Allyson Gallamore, reading a story at Santaland on Saturday, Dec. 5. The event included a visit with Santa, lots of wonderful baked treats and a kid’s boutique where kids can shop for Christmas presents. This year the event was held at the old post office building and is sponsored by the Woman’s Club of King George. Check out more holiday photos on page 16, our “Shop Locally” page.

Wal-Mart building plans submitted to King George

The Wal-Mart planned for Dahlgren now has its building plans on file in King George County.  
The building plans for the Wal-Mart supercenter store project were filed last week with the Department of Community Development for review and comment by the county building official.  
That is expected to take place prior to submission of an application for a building permit for the chain store behemoth.
The shopping center is currently being marketed as “King George Gateway.”
Its final site plan was reviewed and approved by the Planning Commission back in the summer on Aug. 11.  
A subdivision final plat for the shopping center was approved by the Planning Commission at last month’s meeting on Nov. 10.  
The approval of the final site plan and subdivision of the property were the main actions required by the county, since the commercial development is in line with the existing zoning.  
The shopping center is being commercially marketed with Wal-Mart openly noted as the anchor store. But there has still been no official announcement by Wal-Mart.

Not snow, but rain for Santaland

 

 

Liam Prunczik and Johnny Catlett, dressed as Santa's elves, ring bells outside Santaland on Saturday morning. By mid-morning the weather in King George had turned from rain to rain and sleet. The boys took breaks inside Santaland, known the KG residents as the old post office building, warming up with lots of hot cocoa.

The Woman's Club of King George organizes this annual event to provide children a chance to do a bit of holiday shopping and give their own wish list to Santa.
