  • Event Zone
    EventZone's Party in the Park summer concert series at Elmwood Park helps Thursday ditch its weekday persona and get loose with food, drinks, fun events, and a different musical headliner every week. On June 16, hips wiggle, toes tap, and fingers form synchronized kick-lines to the southern-rock sounds of Jim Quick & Coastline. The festival's more than 13,000 frolickers can unwind with a Budweiser or glass of Gallo wine ($4 each), or indulge in a guilt-free splurge on festival cuisine and soda, knowing that part of Party in the Park's proceeds go to local nonprofit organizations. With Parrothead Night as the theme of the evening, Jimmy Buffet fans and their exceedingly loyal spouses can feel free to don Hawaiian garb and warm up their margarita hands for the slushy merriment ahead, and Davidson's Clothing for Men takes over the stage at band intermission to give away free T-shirts ideal for hiding malfunctioning coconut bikinis.

  • History Museum of Western Virginia
    As the keepers of their region's heritage, members of the Historical Society of Western Virginia know that best way to spread political traditions is through engaging public exhibits. That's why they operate two museums dedicated to Western Virginia's unique culture. As a key battleground in the Civil War, West Virginia has no shortage of history for the curators at the History Museum of Western Virginia to draw upon. They leave no manuscript, periodical, or photograph unturned, using the museum's own vast library to build exhibits that celebrate formative moments in the Commonwealth's history. Sometimes, they go back even further. The museum's primary exhibit, Crossroads of History, interprets 10,000 years of heritage through artifacts such as Native American arrowheads, pottery, and the "Rawrenoke" beads that lend their name to the city of Roanoke. At the O. Winston Link Museum, exhibits focus on more recent?and locomotive?history. Drawn from the collection of photographer Winston Link, the museum continues its namesake's quest to document and memorialize the bygone steam engines of the Norfolk and Western Railway. In addition to housing more than 300 images of these country-conquering machines, the museum also hosts temporary exhibits of other historically significant photos; recent shows featured a collection of Winston Link's work in the world of advertising, and lithographs from engine designer Raymond Loewy.

  • The Master's Inn
    Ask those who work at The Master's Inn, and they'll tell you: you can connect with the divine inside the walls of a church, but you might experience an even more meaningful connection beneath the stars and sun. That's why the retreat offers camping and outdoor recreation for Christians of all ages. Bonfires, trail rides, ropes courses, a zip line, and a lake for canoeing occupy the Inn's 300 acres, along with buildings and meeting facilities.

  • Communities In Schools of Greater Greensboro
    All American’s mobile cleaning crews clear stains from Greensboro flooring using truck-mounted steam-powered cleaning equipment and biodegradable cleansers. The roughly two-hour treatment cleanses and deodorizes carpet, then applies a protective layer of Scotchgard to shield sensitive fibers from the slings and arrows of outrageous juice spills. All American combats grime with a hot-water extraction process that digs deep into floor-hair to root out stains in the shape of Gorbachev's face, adjusting heat and water flow to safely de-gunk even delicate carpets and rugs.
