Keeping Sanford Sparkling!

We all know how hard it is to keep our homes clean and presentable enough to open up our doors for those unexpected visitors, yet we do our best and strive for cleanliness. So why would our town, which we call home be any different? When I welcome visitors from out of town to my hometown I want them to see it in all its glory, just as I do every time I step outside my door. I want nature to flourish, I just want our world...

Day 208 – Sofas and Suds Returns

It was a great day for couch racing in Sanford! Sofas and Suds, one of the coolest and most creative events ever (kudos to Mike Smith of the Imperial at Washburn Imports for coming up with something so genius!), took place this afternoon (4/13/14) in downtown Sanford. It was the second time sofas were racing through the streets of Sanford (click here to read a previous post by Christina about the first event). Watching the races,...

Day 206 – State of the City

The Sanford Chamber of Commerce and the City of Sanford invited everyone to a luncheon titled “The State of City”, so naturally I signed up because I want to stay and keep you updated on anything new happening in Sanford. In no particular order and without going further into detail here are some of my notes taken at the luncheon… The city is operating on a 90 million budget, biggest percentage is spent on public...

Day 205 – Pirate Fest

Today’s Alive After 5’s theme was Pirates! Pirates are always a popular theme (see my previous post about the Festival of the St. Juans) so combined with this awesome weather, the event was bound to be a success! One of the main “attractions” was the pirate ship in front of The Breezeway. Of course N had to climb up (he didn’t even insist on me coming with him, I guess being a pirate is a boys’...

Day 202 – Martini Mondays Liquor Edition

In a previous post Christina had already mentioned Martini Mondays and just a few weeks ago I finally got to experience its awesomeness as well! So to keep things short, here is a snapshot of how Martini Mondays looks like when it’s not about Martinis but about finding out who knows their liquor. Though somewhat competitive we were all very civilized and our get-together did not in any way resemble a college party. Does that...

Day 200 – Sunrail Grand Opening

Lots of people that saw this picture actually thought I had already taken an actual ride on the all new Sunrail. I had to tell everyone though that it was just some “test sitting” inside the train since Sunrail doesn’t start operating until May 1st. On April 5th, 2014 (let’s call it a historic date…) I went to the grand opening of the Sanford Sunrail station. There was a big crowd of Sunrail fans lined up...
