Congratulations to Clarksville Middle School 6th grader Neha Banerji and 8th graders Molly Goldstein and Amanda Zhu on having photos selected for the Snap! 24 Hours exhibit at the Columbia Arts Center. All photos were taken by the students on Nov. 5 and reflect everyday life of the students. Amanda's "Tic-Tok" was used on the exhibit invitations.

Margaret and Randy Walton had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebration in Florida. Among the highlights were a vocal solo Christmas Eve by granddaughter Ann Margaret Williams. Photos indicate that Annie is growing up fast and beautiful.

The Waltons' daughter Julie Williams Heilman rode on a float in the Citrus Parade in Orlando featuring Ann Margaret, Jack and Randy Williams and several other pageant winners as Citrus royalty. Margaret has lots of photos to share. Just ask her.
