Candler Park Movie Night on September 8

The people of Candler Park have spoken! The polls are closed and the winner of the September 8 viewer’s choice movie is Back To The Future!  Some of you may be thinking, who has not seen this movie? But have you seen Back to the Future’s digitally re-mastered High Definition twenty-fifth anniversary version on BluRay on a three story screen under the stars in Candler Park’s natural amphitheater? I don’t think so.

Before the movie starts on September 8, there will be awesome pre-movie activities starting at 6:30 pm, put on by our friends at the Mary Lin PTA! They’ll be helping us get in the groove of the movie’s era withswingin’ 50s music, a hula hoop contest, limbo, a “Back”wards (get it?) running contest, and a bunch of great prizes.  Kids – wear your poodle skirt, rockabilly clothes, bowling shirts or whateversignals “I’m back from the 50s” – best outfit wins a prize!

So this Saturday, come down to Candler Park in front of the pool house to have dinner, and see a great movie with your neighbors.  This is all in addition to the usual musickids dancing mania that typically starts off movie night in Candler Park.

Candler Park Movie Night festivities start at 6:30 pm and the feature presentation will go on around 8:00 (sunset) in front of the poolhouse. You will want to get there early for the best spot!

Once again, well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome. Bring your own coolers but be aware that GLASS containers or bottles are strictlyforbidden in city parks.  

Thanks to Park Pride/Friends of Candler Park / Epworth Methodist / Clifton House. Thanks to our sponsors BOND credit union, Front PageNews, Corner Tavern, Tijuana Garage, Candler Park Market, The Albert, CornerTavern and our Presenting sponsor the Candler Park Neighborhood Organization, without whom movie night would not be possible.

New CP safety email list and CP Facebook page

Sep 5 2012

1) New safety email list - We've created a new CP safety email list and you can sign up here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/candlerparksafety/

The main purpose will be to ensure everyone can get the word out quickly to residents when a crime has been committed in our neighborhood. It can also be used to share safety tips, and discuss any other safety related topics.

2) New Facebook page - CPNO finally has a Facebook page. Please go here: http://www.facebook.com/CandlerPark and "like" it so you'll get updates in your friend feed. Also, spread the word to others.

As a sidenote, we're a bit late to the FB page party because a commercial entity created FB pages for all the intown neighborhoods, got big fan bases, and then abandoned them; they have been unwilling to hand over the admin credentials. So now we're starting from scratch. Not ideal but we'll make the new page great! :)

Sidewalk Clean-up in Candler Park Today

Aug 27 2012

Good news! Phase one of the sidewalk project takes place today - a clean-up of both McLendon Avenue and Oakdale Rd within Candler Park. A lawn service will be coming through to pick up leaves and other debris, trim back branches, ivy and overgrowth that are encroaching on the sidewalk, mow grass and leaves in the "grassy strip," edge and blow off the sidewalk, and haul away all the refuse. The end result should be a more walkable and tidy surface on which to make your way through Candler Park.

Thank you to all the McLendon and Oakdale homeowners who granted permission to have this work done. The work is being funded by Candler Park Neighborhood Organization, and won't cost homeowners a dime!

Stay tuned for photos!

First meeting of the CPNO Festivals Committee

Hi all, please note that this meeting date has changed from September 11 to August 27.

From Donna Palmer, Committee Member

At the July CPNO membership meeting, members voted to form a new committee dedicated to working directly with the Atlanta City Council to help regulate the festivals held in Candler Park. The committee will likely draft proposals to the council that represent the neighborhood’s position and priorities related to festivals, which are growing in both number and size.

Neighbors interested in participating on the committee should contact Mark Clement, Special Projects Officer: 404-808-3635 or projects@candlerpark.org.

The first meeting will be held on Monday, August 27th at 7pm at Fellini's in Candler Park. All are welcome to attend.

Mulch Men

Aug 22 2012

As part of the CPNO sidewalk initiative, six stumps were drilled out alongside the sidewalks of Oakdale and McLendon. Several of these stumps were giants, and they encroached significantly on the sidewalk. This made it nearly impossible to walk two abreast, or with a stroller or wheelchair. Good riddance, stumps!

But, the stump removal project left mountains of mulch where the stumps had been. Some of that mulch was used to fill the holes, but there was still a lot of mulch leftover. What to do?

MULCH MEN TO THE RESCUE!

A merry band of mulch removal engineers (also known as neighborhood volunteers) - Mark Clement, Mischa Uppelschoten, Eric Rubenstein and Ken Edelstein - loaded up the mulch and unloaded it on the fine trees in the park. Not the most relaxing way to spend a Tuesday evening, but very much appreciated.

A big thank you to our mulch men! Our neighborhood is a tidier, more walkable place because of you.
