A MESSAGE OF HOPE FROM EP'S INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

As we enter into the holiday season, many of us are experiencing mixed emotions due to uncertainty and change, and yet hope keeps us moving forward.  In the midst of this necessary movement, we have learned to appreciate many things we may have taken for granted - life, health, family, community, and connection, to name a few.  At Enough Pie, we are thankful for all of these, and you, our neighbors, partners and supporters.  
 

The rich culture and the humanity that exist within the Upper Peninsula is here because of individuals who have come before us, those living among us and those that have yet to come.  We celebrate this every day through creative place-making, cultural preservation, social justice, environmental justice and advocacy.  
 

The Enough Pie team wants you to know we are honored to work with each of you to change the systems that create injustices and promote inequities in our ever growing communities, and are even more thankful you continue to say yes.   
 

As we enter into this holiday season, we hold you, our residents, volunteers, community partners, artists, businesses, and civic organizations close.  We send you and your loved ones much love and light for a safe and joyful holiday season.  
 

With gratitude, 
Thetyka Robinson, Interim Executive Director

EAST SIDE SMOKESTACKS
Some "good" news for our beloved East Side Smokestacks. One of the two St. Julian Devine Community Center's smokestacks is in good condition, considering its age. The smokestacks were ordered to be removed in August. City Council listened to the community's demand to preserve the smokestacks, and hired Bennett Preservation Engineering to help come up with a plan. The interior of the smokestacks remain a problem, and a decision will be made at a task force meeting in January.

In 2016, the Smokestacks were home to the "Love Bomb"-- an Enough Pie community knitting project in partnership with the City of Charleston, Department of Recreation, BoomTown, and SCE&G.
