From Kim Meyer, Mary Lin PTA President:
MEET NEW FAMILIES AND RE-CONNECT WITH RETURNING MARY LIN FAMILIES!
Our Mary Lin Back-to-School socials are scheduled for July! They are 9:30-11 for K-2nd and 11-12 for 3-5th. These are not drop-off play dates, but they are great opportunities for families to meet and greet before school starts. Please bring your own snacks/drinks/sunscreen! Feel free to come one or both days!
July 19 Candler Park
July 26 Springvale Park
BE A PART OF OUR WELCOME COMMITTEE AT THE K-2 PLAYDATE! We will have new families with questions and most importantly a new student! If you would like to help us in getting our new families connected with other families, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Posted for Candler Park Market
For the past several years, New Belgium Brewery has generously donated one of their hand crafted bicycles for us to display in the Market. New Belgium leaves the fate of the bicycle to the discretion of each store once it goes off display.
We have always held a raffle for the bicycle with proceeds from ticket sales donated to the CPNO and LCN. The bicycle will be displayed from now until our customer appreciation on July 12th when we will draw the winning ticket during our customer appreciation. Each ticket is $2, and proceeds from ticket purchases are equally donated to CPNO and LCN.
Need homes and gardens for the tour. Homes that are 'for sale' are acceptable. Need volunteers to house sit during the tour. The tour will be in conjunction with FallFest. Also need Sponsorships: caterers, florists, real estate brokers, etc. If interested, contact Lexa King (email@example.com) or Bonnie Palter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
There are no applications pending for consideration by the Committee. Therefore, the June meeting is cancelled.
CPNO has worked out a deal with organizers of the Candler Park Music & Food Festival that will get you a free wristband for both days of the event AND will help us raise money for park improvements envisioned in our Master Plan.
All you have to do is hit this link, print out the flyer, and show up at the festival on Friday from 4 pm to 10 pm. Turn in the flyer, and you get the wristband, which otherwise runs $5-$10.
The good deal from the neighborhood's standpoint: Rival Entertainment will contribute a dollar to each person who turns in a flyer. That means more money to improve the pool, fix landscaping problems, and create a long-dreamed-about Candler Park Conservancy.
So, be sure to:
1) email the link to the flyer or the PDF to folks both inside and outside Candler Park;
2) print out a copy for you, your spouse, your kid, your grandmother and even that crazy cousin you keep locked up in the attic;
3) get every single friend, acquaintance and stranger from other neighborhoods near and far to print out the flyer;
4) head on over to the festival on Friday with your flyer and make sure that all family members, friends, and other sentient beings come along with their flyers as well;
5) grab your free wristband, which festival goers must have to purchase alcoholic beverages (the flyers will be honored for children, but those under 18 won't get wristbands);
6) enjoy the festival.
At least 24 food trucks are slated to come to the festival, which was formerly known as Midsummer Food & Music Festival. Friday night is local act night, and there tends to be more of a neighborhood-friendly feel. Among Friday's acts are Sundogs, Moontower and Wesley Cook.
New Orleans jazz-funk-rap musician Trombone Shorty headlines Saturday evening, following half a dozen other acts. But be sure drop Friday with the flyer, because if you do, you'll be able to bring your wristband to Saturday's show.

On a lighter note, here are the write-in candidates from the Epworth polling location. Apparently somebody is going to be disappointed that Borat didn't make it to the grand stage.
Congratulations to all the real winners!
