From Cherie King & Kate Sandhaus, Fall Fest co-chairs:
Candler Park Fall Fest needs your creativity!
We're having a meeting this Saturday, August 7, at 10 am in the Mary Lin Hall House (pull into the school parking lot and the Hall House is the one story house to the left of the school) to brainstorm "themes" for this year’s festival.
We hope you can make it.
From Michelle Hughes: Mr. Michael of The Learning Groove (www.thelearninggroove.com) is teaching music lessons to the public out of Epworth! Additionally, Epworth Day School (www.epworthdayschool.com) kids get to attend their own classes with him! In fact, Mr. Michael is holding a FREE demo class that is open to the public at Epworth on Thursday, August 12, at 1:30pm. All are welcome! To RSVP, just email Mr. Michael himself at firstname.lastname@example.org . Enter through our front lower door!
From Pattie Harrelson: This Saturday, July 31 from 11 - 3 pm we are holding a free Family Fun Day. There will be lots of field day events, face-painting, raffles and more. There is a $5.00 recommended donation. We are raising funds for kids to be Free 2 Play that have been in slavery in Thailand. Please contact Pattie Harrelson for more information.
If you went to last night's Candler Park Screen on the Green, and you took some pics, we want to hear from you. Please send an email with a link to your photos so we can post some here and also put them on the Candler Park Flickr site.
Tonight we rolled out some new functionality on candlerpark.org: a Candler Park message board. You can also get to it from the global navigation, up at the top of the page next to the contact link.
The board can be used to post announcements or events, to talk about childcare or other parent issues, to alert people about crimes, to request contractor referrals, whatever. You've gotta be a registered, logged in user to post, but everyone can read.
Check it out and let us know if you run into any glitches or have any suggested improvements.
From Allison Troxell: DIY Network is casting families in the Atlanta area for its new series: Mega Dens! This is a show where family rooms or under-used spaces get a much needed makeover......but this ain't your mother's makeover show! We're not talking about new TV trays and a coat of paint. We're talking movie theater, high-end game room, wine snob's paradise, techno-geek Shangri-la, sports or music shrine, the possibilities are endless! If you're interested or know someone who might be, please email me at email@example.com and I'll send you more information.
From the L5P Business Association email newsletter:
Please come and see what all of the fuss is about with the new leadership of Little 5!
Come share in the joy and awesomeness of your business community in action.
The next meeting of the L5P Business Association is Wednesday, July 28th at 10:00am in the basement of Sevananda. (last email said a different date, this is the correct date and time).
Bring your checkbook to join up, donate to the Mini Precinct and/or the Halloween Festival....
Please set your calendars, blackberries, and crows to remind you.
Yours in service,
Matt "New Prez" Davis,
Scott "Not Afraid To Get His Hands Dirty" Pendergrast
Brian "Baj" Stevens
From Michelle Hughes:
Epworth UMC is proud to announce that Mr. Michael of The Learning Groove will be offering his wildly popular music classes to the public here at Epworth! You can register for a class at Epworth through here: www.michaellevine.net.
Students of Epworth Day School get their own classes with Mr. Michael, too! The Day School school is currently enrolling and serves students ages 16m to 5yrs. EDS offers Candler Park's only Pre-K class!
This is a post about two of my favorite things: Candler Park Market and beer. Mix them together for a winning combination. But you knew that already.
I do have a point, though, if a beer recommendation qualifies as a point. It's a new beer that Candler Park Market carries, the Dogfish Head Festina Peche, and yes, it involved peaches. But wait! It's not peachy in a gross, sweet, wine coolery kind of way. It's peachy in a "tastes like summer" kind of way. I got some yesterday, had one last night, and am now an enthusiastic convert. You will be too. Give it a try!
Although...now I'm gonna have to race over to CPM to buy some and stockpile it before y'all beat me to it. CPM, save me some before it flies off the shelf!
