Stanley Donen Tribute Film

When the transition is being made from silent films to `talkies’, everyone has trouble adapting. Don and Lina have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part. After a lot of practise with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Kathy, a bright young aspiring actress, is hired to record over her voice.

Introduction to composting

 

By composting, you can help reduce your overall landfill contribution and make organic matter able to improve the chemical, physical and biological characteristics of your soils.

Attend a City of Winter Park “Introduction to Composting” class and learn how to turn yard and kitchen waste into organic matter to use as a soil amendment, mulch, and potting soil. Composting of yard trash is an environmentally sound way to reduce solid waste by recycling a useful resource. If you have a large amount of food waste that ends up in the trash can or feel like you should contribute less to the overall flood of waste headed to our landfills, this class is for you. Designed for residents interested in learning about backyard composting, attendees will learn the basics of home composting, how to build your own compost system, and the benefits of composting.

The workshop includes a presentation and information packet. We are offering FREE backyard composters to Winter Park residents. To become eligible, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Must resident within the City of Winter Park Boundary. Check your your eligibility by viewing a map of the City of Winter Park Boundary.

Good Morning Winter Park

Keynote Speaker: Bronce Stephenson

 

Good Morning Winter Park is Winter Park’s live, interactive morning magazine featuring local topics ranging from politics to exploring entries in the marketplace in and around Winter Park.

This Good Morning Winter Park will feature Bronce Stephenson, Director of Planning and Community Development of the City of Winter Park.

Winter Park has long wrestled with what should be done with Orange Avenue, which is a rare area of town that has been economically stagnant for years. Bronce Stephenson was brought to Winter Park with the task of creating a plan for Orange Avenue. The Winter Park Planning staff is embracing this place-making effort to create a vibrant mixed-use district that helps the area businesses and provides better connectivity to area residents and Mead Gardens.  An effort to create Winter Park’s next great place is underway, capitalizing on the opportunity to enhance Orange Avenue using an overlay district. Mr. Stephenson will explain how this community-driven planning effort is creating a real buzz and how the Winter Park community gets to be involved in creating the Vision for Orange Avenue.
