Two Great Events This Weekend - Join the Fun

There are two great outdoors events downtown this weekend. Hope you can come.

WALKIN' IN MEMPHIS - Sunday, Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. Stroll through the heart of downtown with Judith Johnson, TN Advisor to the National Trust for Historic Preservation and FfOR board member. Take a look at our public spaces, historic restoration projects, and new development through her trained eye. See the potential role of the Public Promenade, as Mayor Riley would say, "our finest edge." Walk begins on the Shelby County Courthouse steps (140 Adams) and ends up on the subterranean patio at Brinkley Plaza where "the river rat" will be grilling out. Please RSVP to, so we’ll have a headcount. Street parking is free on the weekends. Raindate: Oct. 22, same place, same time. Hope to see you there.

HARBOR CLEAN-UP – Saturday, Oct. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon. Join the Sierra Club and help beautify our harbor. Meet under the Auction Street Bridge,on the east side of the harbor, for a little community service and a lot of fun. For more info. Contact James Baker at 372-6717 or by e-mail at
