VIDEO PREMIERE: MEMORIAL DAY 2019
MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATION: NOURISH FINALE
presented by North Central Neighborhood Association, First African Child Development Center, and Enough Pie

Did you know the first Memorial Day took place in Charleston, right here in Hampton Park? That's right! It was a celebration in 1865 led by women and children (over 3,000!) in honor of prisoners of war who died here.

North Central Neighborhood Association, First African Child Development Center and Enough Pie presented a neighborhood celebration at the Butterfly Book Nook (First African) on Monday, May 27th from 11am – 2pm. Neighbors joined together for delicious food, live music from wi11y the drummaboi, colorful art making, dancing, music, a giant water slide and small pools for cooling off are part of the plan.

EP is so grateful to everyone that made Memorial Day an amazing celebration, including our awesome Board Members and partners: North Central Neighborhood Association, First African Child Development Center, Charleston Mermaids, Charleston Recreation Department, Limehouse Produce, The Royal American, Food Lion, Stone Soup Collective, Artist & Craftsman and Uneeda Sicilian. Thank you to Jalen Johnson for the photographs. Thank you to Marcus Amaker for the video.
NEW FRIENDS: TRANSFORMATION TABLE

TRANSFORMATION TABLE IN THE UPPER PENINSULA

This past Saturday, June 8th, Enough Pie coordinated a dinner with Transformation Table to help close our AWAKENING: NOURISH series. What happens when you invite total strangers to dinner and all you ask is that they “bring an open heart and mind, and a sincere desire to connect?”

“I love the entire concept of bringing people together with food and good energy. It’s similar to my idea of bringing people together with music and good energy. I absolutely want to be invited again. And again.” Melvina Ravenel, Owner of Djum Exercise and Dance Studio

Thank you to all our guests, our hosts, and to Transformation Table for working with us on this initiative. The dinner was lovingly hosted at the home of Lauren & Jonathan Sanchez, owners of Lauren Sanchez Designs and Blue Bicycle Books. Caribbean food prepared by Ma Gloria.

FRESH COAT OF PAINT: KING STREET CROSSWALKS

CREATIVE CROSSWALKS GET SPRING CLEANING

Last year, Enough Pie and Charleston Moves presented AWAKENING: MOTION, a series of community artwork and public projects in Charleston's Upper Peninsula that aimed to dignify mobility through creative solutions so that everyone feels safe & welcome on our streets.  This year, for AWAKENING: NOURISH, we updated and refreshed these crosswalks and are working to get an approval process to allow this type of community artwork in more neighborhoods.

Why paint crosswalks?
With 14 creative crosswalks designed by 10 local artists, we seek to link people on foot with restaurants, schools, neighborhoods, shops, greenspaces, religious institutions, a library, bicycle and mass transit infrastructure, and a grocery store safely.

We have specifically chosen intersections along King Street that are maintained by the City of Charleston rather than the state, in order to demonstrate the mixture of street ownership and the difficulty involved with encouraging the state’s Department of Transportation to install infrastructure for people over cars.

Crosswalk Artists: Ill Vibe The Tribe, Paisley Addams, UNC Morehead Scholars, P-Nut, Shady Design Co., North Central Neighborhood Association and so many amazing volunteers!
