30th anniversary celebration
Northbrook Preschool began a year of celebrating starting on September 9. We commemorated 30 years of serving this community as a preschool program of excellence. We had an amazing “birthday party” that Sunday for our milestone year.
It was a great turn out of currently enrolled families and teachers, alumni families, former teachers, former directors, and former assistant directors. John Simmons, the founding pastor of Northbrook, brought the message. He apologetically shared that he “tricked” Miss Betty Mullennix into being the first teacher/director. There were special recognitions of all of the families, teachers, directors, and assistants in the worship service.

The Mullennix family was named the “First Family of Northbrook Preschool” because Miss Betty started the program, Jan Holcombe (her daughter) was the second director, Lindsay Nieves (Miss Betty’s granddaughter) was in the first class, Jill Johnson (Miss Betty’s daughter) was an assistant director, and Chris and Stacy Holcombe have their daughter Finley (Miss Betty’s great granddaughter) in our program in 1s this year.

After worship, we had a covered dish luncheon. The preschool provided fried chicken and birthday cake. The congregation and currently enrolled families brought side dishes. It was truly a feast and there were 4 sheet cakes to make up one big cake which was cut by Miss Betty and John Simmons.
In the afternoon there were face painting, corn hole toss, an historical display of picture albums from the past 30 years,  unveiling of the “Wall of Honor,” and tours of the preschool for our alumni. 

We unveiled our Walk of Fame plans for selling engraved bricks to provide for a stroller/handicapped walkway into the downstairs C Building entrance at the brown awning.

It was an amazing celebration of what the preschool has meant to so many people over the past thirty years.  God has blessed us greatly.
More events will continue throughout the year to mark the 30th anniversary.  On December 16 Laughing Pizza will perform at Roswell Cultural Arts Center.  More details will follow about this event.
The children will be doing special activities on the number 30.  This is a year long celebration!
