What’s going on in your community?

Christine Speno: Indoor, outdoor activities abound in Palm Coast | StAugustine.com.

Hello World

Lots of good stuff going on my community in the coming weeks.  You can read about both indoor and outdoor events that are coming up by clicking on the link  above. Grab your guitar, banjo or ukelele and jam with your neighbors at Gamble Rogers Park.  Or how about  enjoying a sunset river cruise or learning about and experiencing the excitement of Philippine culture?  There is something to please everyone.  Since I know I have many readers that don’t live in Flagler County, Florida, I’d love to know what’s going on where you live during the days of Summer 2011, so be sure to leave me a comment at the end of this post.

And speaking of guitars and other musical instruments, we are fortunate to have Mason Music of Flagler Beach offering a Summer Rock Camp for the kids coming up on June 14-17.  Kids will learn to play and be part of a team while enjoying the opportunity of participating in a live performance on stage at Flagler Playhouse on the last day of the camp.  For more details visit Mason’s website.

And speaking of Flagler Playhouse, hubby Angelo and I had the opportunity to experience the theater yesterday  during a performance of “P.S. Your Cat is Dead!”    Thanks to a great team of actors under the direction of Bruce Heighley (a very talented fixture at the Daytona Playhouse in Daytona Beach), along with everyone not on stage — from ushers to sound technicians, set designers, sponsors and more — this is a true community effort that shines!   You may have read my recent column on the theater.  If not, find it here.  It goes without saying that this is one of the best entertainment values in the area.  Be sure to catch one or more of their productions in the coming season and see what all the excitement is about at Flagler’s Only Community Theater!  You can still get tickets for “P.S.” performances through June 12th.
Thanks for reading and be sure to read the whole calendar of events by clicking on the link above or here.

  1. Love all the information you share about Palm Coast — makes me want to be there no matter the time of year, but especially in the throes of cold Kansas winters. Still sounds inviting in June, though …

  2. Thanks for visiting Sherry. Lots to do here, and it is nice to be 10 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean beaches. but I’d love to know what goes on in other communities. Care to share?

  3. Great question. Growing up, our daughters couldn’t wait to get out of the tiny town in which we live just 30 minutes southwest of Kansas City, Kansas. They always said there nothing to do. I think that was because I worked long hours and we never knew of any local activities to attend. Since I’ve been working from home, I found that we actually do have a variety of neighborhood events that the local rec committee, Methodist Church and Catholic Church host, such as Movie Night, Bingo night, Friday fish fry at the Catholic Church and other similar events. In Kansas City, however, we have access to a plethora of events available year-round. Here we have amazing landmarks like The Plaza, The Jazz District, Crown Center, The River Market and Union Station where you see some of our city’s great history and sample the spectrum of eating possibilities, along with the experience of world-class shopping and entertainment, free city concerts, open markets and daily cheap fresh produce. The offerings of the Kansas City metro area only pale in comparison to cities like San Francisco, New York and L.A. There is ALWAYS something really fun to do here in K.C.

  4. Sounds good. I spent several years in Missouri and am familiar with Kansas City. Went to college (late in life) at Joplin – MSSU.
    Most of my family are Mizzou at Columbia grads including my husband. Still make it back to St. Louis often and we have an investment property in Maryland Heights, MO.

    btw I love the Hallmark Center in Kansas City!
