Making a movie isn’t all glamor, a 1987 graduate of Sweet Home High School can now attest.

Jennifer Kennedy, the daughter of Bill and Irene Kennedy of Sweet Home, recently worked as an extra in a movie, “Sister Act”, starring Whoopi Goldberg. It is being produced by Walt Disney’s Touchstone Pictures.

In her spare time Kennedy is a model, which led to her part in the movie which is to be released April 1992.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Sweet Home Singing Christmas Tree. This dedicated community group has grown to approximately 90 members, busily preparing for the performances that will help kick off the Christmas season in Sweet Home.

Under the direction of Paul Rowton, with accompanists Jan Barthell and Bill Langdon, the choir has been meeting each week since early September. They are learning music and lyrics that make up the program that will be shared with the community.
