Land of the Sky Barbershop Chorus will perform Sunday, August 14, at 3:00 p.m., in Tartan Hall at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Franklin. With more than thirty members, the allmale chorus sings lively a cappella renditions of old-time and contemporary favorites in four-part harmony.

The program has a comedic courtroom theme, and features many classic hits including “Make ‘em Laugh,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” and “That’s An Irish Lullaby,” with costumes and props to enliven the show, and a heavy sprinkling of rib-tickling humor. Complimentary ice cream sundaes will be served.

Charolotte Coxe has seen a lot of life in 98 years and is still as active and alert as ever. Coxe celebrated the milestone of her 98th birthday with friends and family at a party on Saturday, Aug 6, at her Highlands residence.

“Amazing” was the only word that Coxe could think of to describe how it felt to have so many people come to a party just for her.

“I’m a very lucky person,” Coxe reflected. “I’m very thankful for my life.”

“Everyone at the party had such a good time, were wishing her well and they stayed until the very last minute,” said Joyce, Coxe’s daughter. “Mom loves to go to and give parties.”
