More than 100 people crowded the town's historic downtown to say good morning to Karyn Greer, Melissa Long and Elle Duncan. Elle, who grew up in Powder Springs and graduated from McEachern High School, had fun mingling and cheering with her alma mater's cheerleaders.

Several performance groups stopped by to give demonstrations, including dancers from Studio 4 the Arts and the young athletes of Cobb Martial Arts:
