Book Club | The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

13486632CHNA Book Club |  The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
Tuesday, April 24th @ 7PM | | 534 29th Ave N | RSVP: Maureen Camphire, maurcamp@verizon.net

From Goodreads: It all starts on the one-hundredth birthday of Allan Karlsson. Sitting quietly in his room in an old people’s home, he is waiting for the party he-never-wanted-anyway to begin. The Mayor is going to be there. The press is going to be there. But, as it turns out, Allan is not… Slowly but surely Allan climbs out of his bedroom window, into the flowerbed (in his slippers) and makes his getaway. And so begins his picaresque and unlikely journey involving criminals, several murders, a suitcase full of cash, and incompetent police. As his escapades unfold, we learn something of Allan’s earlier life in which – remarkably – he helped to make the atom bomb, became friends with American presidents, Russian tyrants, and Chinese leaders, and was a participant behind the scenes in many key events of the twentieth century. Already a huge bestseller across Europe, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared is a fun and feel-good book for all ages.

3/12/18 | CHNA Neighborhood Meeting | NEW LOCATION

Please join us on Monday, March 12th for our Neighborhood Meeting.  We will be meeting at 7:00 pm in the TASCO Teen Center Building in the Huggins-Stengel Sports Complex at Crescent Lake Park. Parking is available, and the facility address is 1320 5th Street N.

The purpose of this meeting is to continue the discussion on whether or not areas of CHNA should consider applying for local historic designation.  A representative of the City of St. Petersburg’s Historic Preservation staff will be available to answer your code-specific questions in terms of window replacement, door replacement, fence repairs, additions, demolition, and other topics.  This individual can also share more about the application process and timeline for potential adoption. Once this meeting has adjourned, the CHNA Board will add the questions posed to our Q&A educational document, and then work to distribute the information to residents.  Members of the CHNA Board will share information about recent developments on the cooperative negotiation process with the Church of the Beatitudes and developer JMS Consulting.

Pizza and soda will be provided.  Historical designation is an important issue that could have a long-term impact on our neighborhood and its residents.  Please join us on Monday, March 12th to learn more about this important topic.

2/24/18 | Shower the Church of the Beatitudes in Love

Saturday | February 24th | 12:15 pm

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is encouraging you to show your love for historic buildings by “bombing” them with paper hearts. And we have just the place for you here in Crescent Heights: For over 50 years the Church of the Beatitudes facility at 2812 8th Street N. has served as community meeting space, polling location, and valued neighborhood partner.  Unfortunately, it now may be time to say goodbye as the building has been sold and there are plans in place to redevelop all or a portion of the parcel.

Regardless of what’s to come, let’s celebrate all of the memories and bomb it with love!  Please join us on Saturday, February 24th at 12:15 pm for a Heart Bomb event.  Bring your own paper heart or we’ll have spare paper hearts to share. Write a message of love or gratitude on the heart and we’ll take a group photo in front of the facility to show our love. Afterwards the hearts will be left for the congregation to thank them for sharing their facility with our local neighborhoods for so many years.  Hope to see you there!
