CP Movie Night This Saturday: Wreck It Ralph

Sep 5 2013

This Saturday evening, September 7, we'll have yet another fabulous Candler Park movie night in the park. The feature presentation will be Wreck It Ralph: http://movies.disney.com/wreck-it-ralph (Please note that Ferris Bueller was previously scheduled for this date but changed due to concerns about language.)

The movie will start at dusk, which is around 8 pm, but come at 7 pm for hanging out with neighbors and kids running around. 

Also, save yourself the trouble of making dinner that night. CP neighbor Chris Fitzgerald, co-owner of Uncle Maddio's at Edgewood, will be there selling pizza (thanks Chris!). So bring your blanket and chairs and make an evening of it.

Candler Park Movie Night Tonight

Aug 24 2013

A quick reminder that tonight is another movie with friends and neighbors under the stars.  

Tonight's feature presentation is Pee Wee's Big Adventure and it'll start at sunset (around 8 pm). Our seed-spitting contest got rained out at the last movie night, so we'll give that another go some time in the 7:00 hour. Tell your pint-sized seed-spitters to bring their game face.

Atlanta Marathon Adopt-a-mile

Aug 22 2013
submitted by Eric Rubenstein
Atlanta Marathoners need your help for their October 27 race through town - and it's a great way to raise funds for your favorite neighborhood association, CPNO! Without funding, there are no Master Plans, no Fall Fests, no nuthin'. So it's important to get as many folks as we can, the widest cross-section of neighbors and friends, to show up to our mile of the Atlanta Marathon on October 27.
CPNO was awarded a mile along the Atlanta Marathon's October 27th race. The race starts at 7:30 AM on Sunday, October 27 - (hot coffee and glazed breakfast treats await).  Of the 26 or so miles involved, we got the closest one to our neighborhood -- Highland Ave from Boulevard to North Ave.  We need a minimum of 15 volunteers at the water stand, and 15 volunteers at the cheer zone at all times (roughly 3-4 hours) - and if we get lots more, we can work out some shifts!
We will be judged by the race producers based on number of volunteers (minimum of 30, or no money awarded), how creatively we're dressed, how loud we can get, how long we stay, how well we clean up, and can even earn a bonus if the runners judge our mile best. If we represent like I know we can, we can't lose.
The money we raise as a result will go toward the creation of a youth road race in Candler Park (or other great fitness activity for our kids - ideas welcomed).  So get the word out and hold the date - October 27 - to show the runners some love and connect with your neighbors at the same time.  Sign up for a shift at the links below, and look forward to seeing you all along the mile!

Master Plan - Passed!

Aug 21 2013

At the CPNO monthly membership meeting on Monday night, a motion to approve the Candler Park Master Plan passed easily. There are a few steps in the process between approval and formal submission to the City, but it was great to see how many people came out to support the plan's approval. Thanks to the Master Plan Committee and Market + Main for all your hard work putting this together, answering questions, and gathering input along the way.


Hard to argue with that!

Candler Park Local History Collection - Unveiling

There are curently 35 sheep penned up on the hill on the Candler Park Drive side of the park. They're working hard to clear out some overgrown invasive foliage. An electric fence and two sheep dogs are keeping the sheep on task. Read more about them on the page for the "Meet the Sheep" event, scheduled for today from 2-5. If you do go to see them at work, please avoid the electric fence.
