Memorial United Methodist Church Blankets Soldiers with Love

This past spring members of the Memorial United Methodist Church worked to hand craft 70 beautiful blankets for wounded warriors at Fort Bragg.  These Blankets for Recovery are a wonderful example of positive community service that truly makes a difference.  
If you would like to establish a Blankets for Recovery Project for soldiers please visit
Flags Across the Nation where you can find instructions about how to start such a project. 

We would love to cover your East Charlotte Community Service Project here at East Charlotte

Diners Drive-Ins and Dives – East Charlotte Style

I just came across these two videos from the Food Network show Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.  It is one of my favorites to watch and I was really thrilled to see these two East Charlotte restaurants showcased by Guy Fieri!!   Have you visited either of these two places…what is your favorite item on the menu??   Jake’s Good Eats is located on Albermarle Rd and Landmark Restaurant Diner is over on Central Ave. East Charlotte has a wonderful range of places to get a great meal… What are your favorites??   I would love to feature them here!!

Back to School – Best Wishes!!

School Buses

Just a note to wish all the students, parents, teachers and staff all  the best as we begin another school year here in East Charlotte.   We all must work together to strive for a supportive and positive educational environment for our students so they grow and develop into future leaders 
I encourage East Charlotte Businesses to work to develop supportive relationships with local schools.  We all must work to find ways to increase the time and supplies we offer in support of our local schools.
