Georgia government recognition after 50 years of denial 

Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

Below is an Op-Ed that appeared in the Ledger-Enquirer in Columbus, GA this week providing the details of a program to honor me and 30 other Black students. We were arrested in 1963 trying to check out books from the All-white Bradley Library. We have not seen each other in more than 50 years.

Ward 5 CM McDuffie: Today's MLK Day Parade

Today's MLK Day Parade



Neighbors,

Today we celebrate American hero and civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by giving back, or attending events to commemorate his life and legacy.

This morning I led a Ward 5 delegation in the 13th annual Martin Luther King Day Parade. I was proud to march alongside the Ward 5 Democrats, as well as other Ward 5 residents.


Thank you to those who were able to join us today, as well as those who marked the day with service elsewhere. While the air was cold, spirits were high and everyone enjoyed themselves. Events like this annual parade and peace walk allow us to remember those who fought for equality before us and provide context for the challenges that lay before us.

In Service,

Kenyan

seven weeks from today: Boundary Stone's St. Baldrick's headshaving event to raise funds to fight childhood cancers



We are looking for shavees and donations for our annual St. Baldrick’s Day head shaving event at Boundary Stone. This is our 6th annual event at the pub and have thus far raised $329,053 for children’s cancer research! The day itself is one of our favorite days at the pub and is both a fun and emotional one where we come together as a community.  To get more of a feel for what the day and organization are about, check out this 7 minute film created by LeDroit park resident Quentin Kelly about our 2015 event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgUhfS0n_gc&feature=youtu.be.  We have also created a Facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/291660741698601/?notif_t=event_calendar_create&notif_id=1547061126548928

This year’s event is scheduled for March 10th and we have set the lofty goal of $100,000!  To sign up to be a shavee or to donate, please click on this link: https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/BoundaryStone2019

Below are a few facts about children’s cancer and St. Baldrick’s.
  • Worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes.
  • Childhood cancer is the #1 disease killer of kids in the U.S.
  • Current childhood cancer research is significantly underfunded. Of the U.S. federal funding for cancer research, only 4% is solely dedicated to childhood cancers.
  • St. Baldrick’s is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants.
  • Since 2005, St. Baldrick's has committed more than $253 million to lifesaving research. Grants include training the next generation of researchers, supporting innovative research and helping institutions treat more children in clinical trials. 
Together we can do this! 

Thanks for your help!

Superbowl Sunday Fellowship at Metropolitan Wesley AME Zion Church

See this 01-19-2019 event announcement from Metropolitan Wesley AME Zion Church:





Open Houses in and around Bloomingdale scheduled for Saturday 1/19 and Sunday 1/20/2019


1731 1st St NW #2 is offered at $735,000.
 The featured open house is an upper level duplex condo in a Victorian house in Bloomingdale. The agent representing the seller is Casey Aboulafia with Compass. See the links below for more details and open house times.

SATURDAY 1/19/2019 Open House list and map

SUNDAY 1/20/2019 Open House list and map
Please note that the link shows the next scheduled open house, so if you are viewing the Sunday link on Saturday and that listing happens to be open also on Saturday, it will show the Saturday scheduled open. I assume it updates to Sunday once the Saturday one is over, so check later to verify Sunday times. (I will make Bright MLS aware of this glitch.  Area Realtors recently switched to an entirely new MLS platform and we are asked to provide feedback for these kinds of issues.) ~Suzanne

*Agents, to have your open houses included in this weekly post, please have them tagged in Bright MLS by 10am on Friday. If you don't see your open house in the links, feel free to add in the comments. Also, if you would like your open to be featured with a picture for this post, please e-mail suzanne at compass dot com by 10am on Friday before the open.
