“Across Time!” – Staff Talent Show at Mount Vernon Towers

“Across Time!” – Staff Talent Show at Mount Vernon Towers



Directed by the inimitable Shelly Gianino, a resident at Mount Vernon Towers, the staff of the independent living community in the heart of Sandy Springs hosted a special evening for the other 300+ residents here. For two nights in a row, more than thirty employees put on a magnificent Talent Show called “Across Time.”

The employee talent show is certainly a unique way to show how much people enjoy working here, or as Angie notes, “…it is a great way to have fun and bring joy to our community.”

Allen and Joann Kolb, residents, sent a thank you note after the event and called it “the best show ever!” They wrote:

“We thoroughly enjoyed the production of Across Time and wish to thank all of the employee participants for their involvement, enthusiasm, and willingness to share their talent. The show for us was inspirational, uplifting, and entertaining.”
