September is Library Card Sign-up Month

(St. Augustine, FL) – Every parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways you can ensure your child’s academic success is by making a quick trip to the library. There is no better time than Library Card Sign-up Month to make this happen! This September, the St. Johns County Public Library System joins with the American Library Association and public libraries across the nation to make sure all children have the most important school supply of all—a free library card. The St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners is getting in on the act by proclaiming September “Library Card Sign-up Month in St. Johns County” at the beginning of their regular meeting on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

Dinner with An Artist: An Art Affair

Icon PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL - 8/26/14 - The tables were set at Eleven South for a wonderful evening of food, art and inspiration. The Friends for the Arts, the affinity group of the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach held its second series of Dinner with an Artist on the beautiful patio of Eleven South. The menu was a three course wine dinner created specifically for the 30 guests who attended this special evening. Henry Von Genk, III, was the guest of honor who provided guests with an inside look into his techniques and inspiration. Hillary Tuttle, owner of Stellers Gallery who partnered with the Friends for this event states, "We are truly lucky to have such a special talent here in Jacksonville. Henry is a self-taught artist who has mastered a hyper realistic style of landscape painting using a unique glazing and shadowing technique bringing richness and depth to all of his work. His love for Florida's waterways and salt marshes of the Southeast coastline is evident in all his paintings. Henry's paintings place you there, warm the heart and stimulate the feelings we all get when actually taking in these beautiful sights." [ More ]
