Just a week ago, we celebrated the opening of the Susan K. and Walter N. George Residential Hall in the Village at Byerly Place. On Monday, the Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery opened it’s first exhibition, a sculptural presentation, “Corridors of Babel,” by Karen Auberger, which continues through Sept. 18. Some 75 students, along with numerous faculty, staff and community members have already taken it in. It’s well worth visiting, if you haven’t already.
And next weekend, Coker’s Kalmia Gardens is taking steps to help all of us take steps to a healthier lifestyle. Kalmia’s third annual 5K Run/Walk starts at 8 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 5. Pre-registration is only $25 and can be done online at carolinarunningcompany.com. Same-day registration is $30 and starts at 7 a.m. race day. Awards will be presented at 9 a.m. Dogs on leashes are welcome.
Should you (and Fido) need to think about it a bit before committing to such a thing — 5K seems pretty far to me and Fido — let me offer a less challenging invitation to consider while you mull over the larger commitments at hand. Today’s cookies are Hershey’s Vanilla Chip Chocolate cookies, and they are, as always, available in the Brown House and in Drengaelen.
Come and get ’em!
