Lo­cal chil­dren are in­vited to come out and hear a Ge­or­gia au­thor of­fer up her fa­vorite things to do in the lead-up to Christ­mas in Rock­mart in mid-De­cem­ber.

Plan to take part in “A Ge­or­gia Jin­gle Jam­boree” at South Mar­ble Cof­fee House on Dec. 15 from 12 to 2 p.m. in a fam­ily-friendly event where the first 100 chil­dren who take part also have a chance to get a free copy of a book.

The Polk County Cham­ber of Com­merce is or­ga­niz­ing a spe­cial read­ing of “The Twelve Days of Christ­mas in Ge­or­gia” by au­thor Su­san Ros­son Spain who is com­ing to town for the read­ing event, and will also hold a book sign­ing af­ter­ward.

Cham­ber Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor Blair El­rod said the or­ga­ni­za­tion also re­ceived a timely do­na­tion from Oglethorpe Power of the books, which al­lows them to give away 100 free hard­back copies of “The Twelve Days of Christ­mas in Ge­or­gia.”

There is a limit of two per house­hold.

“Any books that we don’t give away to the event will be given over to lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions as well,” El­rod said.

The event, be­ing or­ga­nized with the help of Oglethorpe Power and H&R Block in Rock­mart and Cedar­town as spon­sors, is one way El­rod said the Cham­ber and mem­ber busi­nesses can give back at the hol­i­days and also pro­vide an event the whole fam­ily can en­joy.

Those who want more in­for­ma­tion about how to help out, or about the event it­self can con­tact El­rod at direc­[email protected] polk­ge­or­gia.com.
