Carnival @Salem Gate, Conyers Georgia [Video]
I’ve been recognizing this carnival for 7 years now, how it comes in for a week or two during the early summer and it shuts down and leaves for the next mall. You can appreciate the extracurricular activities if you are a parent with kids, looking for a safe environment to patronize. You can also appreciate that this event fuels commerce in the area, jobs and spillage to the nearby Dollar Store, Fast Food Restaurant and Gas Stations.
You can also appreciate how these business owners brave the storms that come at random, sometimes wiping out their profits for days.
Those are things I can appreciate when I observe the carnival and their visit to this growing community. But the one thing you can look forward to, besides the peaceful environment is getting your nerves rattled! There’s that giant swing, that “Fire Ring” and some spinning top, all of it competing with that giant ferris wheel that is most likely drawing the impulsive crowd from -20 to join the locals for fun and prizes. Here’s the video we shot on Friday evening, May 29th, about 9pm. Producer, Relentless Aaron
Phoenix Pass, Rockdale County’s Beacon of Light for Homeless Women
John Miles Chevy of Conyers recently sponsored our coverage of the latest development at the Phoenix Pass community for women who have fallen on hard times. The development has grown to now add 8 more housing units as well as it has received a substantial grant from the JON BON JOVI SOUL FOUNDATION. Here’s our coverage…
The Walk of Heros – Conyers Georgia
I Buy Local – Conyers Georgia
Why do I buy local?
Because each one teach one. Because you scratch my back and I scratch yours. Because it’s good to know that I neighbor . Because familiarity feels comfortable. Because home is where the heart is. because gas is expensive ? Lol.
There is no point here, or maybe there is; I’ve been supporting small businesses for as long as I can remember. My business is even supported by small businesses and small business men and women. If you have a unique service or gift that I can use. then I am a client and a fan. My hope is that eventually you will become a tiger, with some sort of safety net or residual income to secure you thru your latter years. We also know small businesses to pay special attention to detail. It is something like a large class of 40 compared to a small class of 15… The teacher can focus more on the individual student’s needs. Today, although I generally cut my own hair, I had a few extra bucks to support the local barber.
