Kids gathered on Saturdays for five weeks at Kidzu Children’s Museum on Franklin Street and lent a hand toward a group art project, inspired by French artist Niki de Saint-Phalle. After creating the beginning structure, then adding papier-mache, much painting and many mosaic decorations, the children finally completed their frog prince this week.
Some call it “The People’s Republic of Carrboro” but this town has much more to offer than hipster cred and dreadlocks. Carrboro emulates style as a hidden gem of the Triangle area, one that students don’t often discover until their later years at UNC. Take a stroll down West Franklin Street into the heart of this independent town. Sip a coffee at Open Eye Café, relax on the lawn of Weaver Street Market and explore the vibrant shops, houses and people.
Reality Ministries is a Christian organization in Durham with the stated mission of providing a safe and loving environment for community members who have been disenfranchised due to poverty, violence or lack of opportunity — for example orphans, foster children and people in jail. The ministry extends to people with special needs. On Saturday night, Reality Ministries hosted a “Kings and Queens” prom where teens and adults with various mental and physical disabilities were given the “royal treatment.” More than 100 volunteers attended the event and paired up with a friend with disabilities for the evening.
