GPC has expanded its student open house to make this an event for the entire family. The day will include refreshments, games, a softball tournament and local vendors.

Celebrate fall at a "Family Campfire" event from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 20 at Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center. Featured will be music, an animal presentation and storycrafter Anthony Vinson.
