Four umbrellas, and a dog...

These images were made in the 2500 and 2600 block of Columbia Pike.

Dusk, rain, poetry...

Giant music | Jelly Roll Mortals

The new Giant Food grocery store at Penrose Square regularly has excellent local bands perform in their cafe during shopping hours. Quite an unusual venue for music, but one that seemed to draw an appreciative audience.

Pictured are the noted ensemble, Jelly Roll Mortals, who performed originals and requests from the shoppers, who came in all sizes, ages, and shapes.

The Jelly Roll Mortals are: Scott McKnight, guitar; Arch Alcantera, guitar; Kentucky Jim Faris, bass; Steve Woerhle, drums; and Bill Williams, mandolin, ukelele, and guitar. All also perform vocals.

Note: the title, Giant Music, will be recognized by long-term Northern Virginia residents and music aficionados... from back in the day.

Halloween Health Fair /Columbia Gardens

A Halloween health fair was held at Columbia Gardens, an APAH-run apartment complex on South Frederick Street, just a block off Columbia Pike in Arlington.

Along with holiday costumes and candy, free flu shots, HIV testing, vision screening, diabetes, nutrition, and other health information was made available in an accessible community event. Private and Arlington County healthcare professionals, educators, nursing and pharmacy students from Howard, VCU, GWU, and GMU were on hand to consult and administer the vaccinations and tests.

Thanks to Liz McElwee, APAH's on-site resident coordinator for her help.
