It’s a wonderful life. Indeed.

And “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play,” opens Friday at Stage Door to remind us of the wonderful season and of some of yesteryear’s glories.

The film classic comes to life as a live radio broadcast from the 1940s with the story of the idealistic George Bailey and all the charm of the beloved holiday favorite.

Call the box office at 770-396-1726 or vist stagedoorplayers.net.

A ride to somewhere. A three-hour bike ride may have you in the same spot you started, but those benefiting from your spin will be the children and adults that participated in the wonderful Special Olympics program each year.

Spartans collect and deliver. The bounty topped nearly 1,000 pounds from students at North Springs Charter High School in the canned food drive for Sandy Springs’ Community Action Center and the Atlanta Food Bank sponsored by the school’s Interact Club.

Water Girls. Dunwoody Girl Scouts from Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School helped out at the “Hustle for Hope” Halloween 5K benefiting the Elaine Clark Center.
