Memorial Day Celebration
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links and note magenta)
Quite a few of you were looking forward to photos from the Memorial Day Celebration on May 24, 2014. Thank you for being patient with me. It was a fabulous event with movie at Town Hall, live music,
fantastic food such as Kenny & Denny’s BBQ (Their delicious & super affordable BBQ can normally be found at 425 N. Bumby Ave., Orlando, FL 32803 or Lake Eola Farmer’s Market, Orlando, FL 32801). I’ve had the pleasure of observing first hand the secret ingredients possessed by chef of Kenny & Denny’s BBQ: besides the sweet and delicious sauce, he’s made those pulled BBQ pork and chicken quesadillas with such lyrical motion, a dash of love, and a full cup of enthusiasm. It is no wonder that Kenny & Denny’s BBQ came in First Place & received People’s Choice Award!
Ellie Lou’s Brews & BBQ also had pretty good BBQ, normally found at 336 Moore Rd., Ocoee,
FL 34761 (call 407-347-9515 for direction).
If you should be dining with friends or family members who prefer vegetarian meals, you may want to consider Ellie Lou’s for the fried green tomato sandwich option with fresh cut fries. Of course, many also enjoyed the after-dinner dessert from Allen’s Creamery & Coffee House (Downtown Windermere, 523 Main Street, Windermere, FL, 407-876-7685).
I wandered through various booths to learn about some of the community organizations and their respective activities: InterAct of Olympia High School, Winter Garden Squeeze, Rotary Club of Windermere, West Orange Habitat for Humanity, etc. I want to mention particularly the Home At Last project of West Orange Habitat for Humanity. It is a special project of West Orange Habitat for Humanity, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Over 90% of all funds received go directly to the construction of homes for disabled veterans and their families. The goal is to provide mortgage free, accessible homes for combat wounded disabled veterans in appreciation for his/her service and sacrifice for our country.
Our sister publication, Sun Is The Future, is proposing that if West Orange Habitat for Humanity will be interested in installing solar systems to help Home At Last families to reduce their future utility bills, we’d be interested in helping to promote fundraising projects via crowdfunding to accomplish this goal in the future.
Then, we will be able to say,
~have a bright and sunny day~ and ~Let’s Help One Another~
