Lost at Light Up. A delightful Dunwoody afternoon was marred only by a lost jogging stroller for one Dunwoody family.

The Schwinn jogging stroller went missing near the RBC bank on Sunday. It had pink and green baby mittens in the right pocket.

Can you help? Please call Dolores at 404-933-6033.

Smitten for Mittens. Warm and fuzzy things gets warm and fuzzy for victims of Hurricane Sandy with the Mitten Tree project at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School.

A project that started years ago with the reading of “The Mitten Tree,” a pre-school tale written by Candace Christiansen. Since that time, students have collected mittens, gloves, scarves and hats to benefit needy children via various organizations.

This year’s collection will be distributed via churches in New York and New Jersey to children whose homes and belongings were destroyed during the recent hurricane.

The public is invited to help. Please bring donations to HIES primary school at 805 Mt. Vernon Hwy., 30327.

Tuskegee Airmen Visit DAR. Two of the nearly 1,000 brave cadets who were part of World War II’s prestigious squadron of black pilots in the 1940s visited the Sandy Springs’ DAR chapter last month.

Val Archer enlisted in the program in Tuskegee, Ala., at just 14. He joined the Army Air Corps and served as an instrument specialist on P-47s and C-47s and was the recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal.

Wilbur Mason began working on the Tuskegee Army Airfield selling gum and soda to the cadets when he was still in high school.

When he graduated in 1944 he began work on the base in a civilian position handling the inventory of airplane replacement parts. He worked there until the base closed in 1947.

Archer and Mason were guests of the club and presented their stories at the Oct. 25 meeting held at Heritage Sandy Springs.

Artists Market at Spruill Gallery. It’s open. The holiday gift market opened this week with hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday; noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays; closed Mondays and Thanksgiving.

In addition to one-of-a-kind jewelry and art, you can purchase gift certificates valid for any of the great classes at the Spruilll Education Center.

North Springs studies the French way. Students at North Springs just completed a two-week study of French and American relations via an in-house field trip coordinated by the school’s world languages committee chair Jamie Patterson and Claire Collobert from the office of the French Consulated General.

The exploration included study of humanitarian, cultural and educational partnerships between the two countries.

The North Springs World Languages Department in the school’s new Humanities Academy offers on-level, honors and AP French in addition to Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and Latin. Last spring students traveled to Paris and Madrid and to China.
