Lauraville spruced up Harford Road with balloons, good food, sidewalk sales and happy faces over the weekend. And the weather cooperated to make this a beautiful Spring Fling! Shoppers included neighbors, children, and even some curious dogs. It was a great opportunity to see all the small businesses decked out and looking good for spring!

Muldowney’s latest success story is the Donovan Fund, created in the memory of two FCS clients, sisters Eleanor and Anne Donovan, who lived together in a small apartment near Johns Hopkins University. The sisters had no other family and relied on FCS for transportation to medical appointments and help with groceries. When Eleanor passed away in 2004, less than a year after Anne, she left behind a signed photograph of silent film star Ramón Novarro—and a humble bequest to FCS of $500.
Moved by the photo and the gift, Muldowney started a donation-only film series to benefit clients such as the Donovans, who often end up on waiting lists for city services. Held in the back room of [former] sweets shop Rock Candy at 4321 Harford Road [second floor], the monthly series consists of vintage and recent Hollywood releases, such as the 1937 Cary Grant comedy, The Awful Truth (scheduled for January 17). Attendees range from twentysomethings on up, and Stevenson University assistant film and video professor Christopher Llewellyn Reed leads casual post-viewing discussions.
Harford Road businesses have rallied around Muldowney’s cause, which has netted nearly $20,000 to date and assists between seventy-five and a hundred seniors each year. The Chameleon Café offers discounts to movie ticket holders. When Rock Candy temporarily closed during renovations, Will’s Hairstyling Shop held a fundraiser. And Grind On Café often serves dessert to moviegoers after hours. As Muldowney says, “It’s really neighbors helping neighbors.”

Studio C Jewelry & Gifts (submitted by Constance Scott) "Maybe I'm partial, and maybe it's because I'm there so often, but my favorite hang out is my shop! I love hanging out, making jewelry, meeting new people as well as welcoming back repeat customers. The room is bright and airy and people really enjoy the space." vibrantearthjewels.etsy.com
"For 24 Mondays every year from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., late spring through fall, it's the One Straw Farm CSA Pick Up Site under the maple tree at the Episcopal Church of the Messiah, 5801 Harford Road. Celia, a young shareholder, calls it "the vegetable party!" No matter how hot the day, it's cool in the garden, with neighbors stopping by after work to pick up their weekly shares, babies, dogs -- and pitchers of ice water available if you're thirsty. Kids like the swing and adults like to sit and chat and pass a little time together before going home to begin their evenings. Good food and good neighbors in Hamilton! " ~Sarah Miranda

We are closed SUNDAY, APRIL 12! But we do have our 2nd Saturday Poetry reading beginning at 4pm and we will re-open Monday at 6am.
It is the spring season and we are having a blast playing in the dirt. The garden is looking lovely already and the flowers will soon be poking their heads out! So stop in for a wonderful and relaxed breakfast or lunch in the garden, a cup of coffee or tea, a visit with that friend you keep meaning to call, or a simple and quiet moment of retreat. Browse from our small but great selection of new and discounted books, green books, and poetry.
The last couple weeks in April, and weekends during May, promise to be a literary feast. Leslie Miller’s new book Let Me Eat Cake is delightful and she will be here at 4pm on the 25th of April. If you can’t get into Red Canoe to buy your book, check out our on-line bookstore: click on internet sales on our home page www.redcanoe.bz
