In conjunction with the Orchard Knob Community Health Fair on March 17th, Scenic City Angel and friends will hold a brake light repair clinic so that citizens can retain reliable transportation and avoid police stops that result in expensive tickets, court appearances and other issues. The supplies and service will be free to the public, and volunteers will be trained by the Autozone management before the event. The brake light repair clinic will be held from 11am – 3pm at the Autozone parking lot (2021 E 3rd St in Chattanooga, TN) on the 17th and no appointment is necessary.
Twenty of our East Lake kids spent a week at Camp Paradise. A counselor at the overnight camp asked the young campers what they liked most about camp? Some said they don’t have to worry about food–that they get plenty at camp. Others love swimming and boating. Another little boy said he doesn’t have to walk backwards or worry about his back because he doesn’t fear getting shot in the back at camp.
How cool is this?! Check out the video of Full Circle TAP (Teaching Artists Program) happening in the six 1st grade classes at Orchard Knob Elementary.
Twenty kids (ages 11-17) from East Chattanooga participated in a nature-based summer adventure for ten weeks at the YMCA Open Air Academy. Through interactive games, activities, leadership, and field trips, teens learned about the wonders of the environment. All weeks included one service learning project, leadership skills development, and team building activities.
Look how happy our kid-o’s look on their Hamilton YMCA Summer Camp field trip!
