WD HILL IS LOOKING GREAT

The team of artists led by Wade R Williams is creating a beautiful mural across one of the exterior walls of the WD Hill Recreation Center (1308 Fayetteville St). The entrance was redesigned and improved, and new windows were also installed in the rooms used by the Dance Studio and the Seniors lunch and meeting room.

Meet Wade H Williams, who’s the lead artist creating the mural on the front exterior wall of the WD Hill Recreation Center.

RDU Airport’s Observation Park is back! This is a great place to take the family on a free outing, where everyone can watch the airplanes take off from a safe vantage point. You can park for free, listen to communication between the pilots and the control tower, enjoy the picnic and play areas, look at the educational placards (test your knowledge of airplanes!), and use the modern restrooms. Observation Park will be open every day from 9am to dusk.

Spilled Coffee

Little Waves Coffee has been named 2022 Micro Roaster of the Year by Roast magazine, a publication that covers the coffee industry. Most of us know the business as Cocoa Cinnamon, which  was founded in 2010 by Areli Barrera Grodski and Leon Grodski Barrera. Some of us remember Cocoa Cinnamon starting out as a bicycle-based coffee company before they got a retail spot. They have three locations now: 420 W Geer St, 2013 Chapel Hill Rd, and 2627 Hillsborough Rd. The roastery was established in 2017, and after roasting more than 59 thousand pounds of coffee in the past year, Little Waves Coffee not only has their retail locations, but also coffee subscribers and wholesale customers around the country.
