50-Foot Christmas Tree With Environmentally Friendly LED Lighting to Debut at Savannah Mall Nov. 15
Georgia Power officials to be on hand to give away compact fluorescent lights, share energy-saving tips

(SAVANNAH, GA) A 50-foot Christmas tree decorated with environmentally friendly LED lights will debut at the Savannah Mall Friday, Nov. 15. The tree lighting festivities will begin at 7 p.m. in the Center Court. Georgia Power officials will be on hand during the tree lighting to give away compact fluorescent lights and share energy-saving tips. Festivities will continue in the Target wing, where children will have an opportunity to see Santa.

“Decorating our Christmas tree with LED lights is in keeping with our commitment to making the Savannah Mall an environmentally friendly space,” said Savannah Mall General Manager Phil McConnell.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, LEDs, or light–emitting diodes, can be more efficient, durable, versatile and longer lasting than other forms of lighting.

The tree lighting will coincide with Santa’s arrival at the Savannah Mall. Santa will be available for pictures in the Target wing from November 15-December 24. In addition, the Savannah Mall’s annual holiday train for children will open Nov. 15. Children and adults can ride the train through a winter wonderland for just $2 each.

MyStroke Technology to Conduct Prototype Field Trials with Top Kayakers around the World

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments
(GAINESVILLE, GA – November 11, 2013) MyStroke Technology LLC is shipping its Kayak Widget prototypes to top kayaking athletes and coaches around the world, for three weeks of field trials. Then final adjustments to the electronics and software will be made, with delivery of finished product on or before March 1st. It will retail for $250.00 (MSRP).
“The MyStroke Kayak Widget helps all kayakers learn to paddle better. It’s a personal motion-capture system for improving technique and training. The forward stroke is hard to master, and this will help every kayaker’s efficiency on that immediately. Any athlete benefits from using our Kayak Widget; beginners to world-class.” says CTO Danny Broadhurst.
“The Kayak Widget helps paddlers to improve their technique, and have fun monitoring their workout data: number of strokes, distance per stroke, GPS mapping, times, etc. Almost every bicyclist out there today uses multiple devices: to count their calories, track their distance, cadence, etc. Our Widget will do the same for recreational kayakers.” says CEO Joe Vinson.
“Video alone doesn’t capture performance data for analysis, and unless you mount a camera on a 4′ pole above your stern, you’ll need a videographer to follow after you in a chase boat. Put our Kayak Widget on your paddle, and just go kayaking. You can see your stats in real time on your smart phone, or look at them later on your computer.” says CMO Jim Stuart.

Park Place Outreach–Youth Shelter Receives $10,000 Grant from Bank of America Charitable Foundation

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

(SAVANNAH, GA) Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter, a temporary shelter and outreach service that serves youth from Savannah and the surrounding area, has received a $10,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.

“We are extremely grateful for the Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s generous grant,” said Linda Hilts, Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter’s executive director, noting that the shelter will use the grant to cover operational costs. “The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has generously supported Park Place Outreach for many years. The funds they have provided have gone a long way in ensuring that we can continue to provide services to at-risk youth, especially those who are homeless.”

Homelessness, particularly among youth, is a devastating problem across the nation and especially in the Savannah area. According to recent information released by the Georgia Alliance to End Homelessness, Inc., Georgia now ranks 41 out of 50 states on the issue of child homelessness, with 1 being the best and 50 being the worst. Locally, the latest homeless count of the Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless indicates that the Savannah area has the second largest homeless population in Georgia, second only to Atlanta. Homeless youth are more likely to have experienced abuse and neglect, parental drug or alcohol abuse, domestic and community violence and trauma associated with poverty, the loss of home, safety and sense of security.

Since opening its doors in 1984, Park Place Outreach has accommodated more than 6,000 youth, among them many homeless children and teens.

“Our grant to Park Place is part of the ongoing investments the Bank of America Charitable Foundation is making to address immediate critical needs, such as hunger and shelter, and longer term solutions that promote access to benefits and resources,” said Melissa Bouchillon, resident director, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. “We know that through our partnership with Park Place Outreach that we can create positive change for youth in our area.”

About Park Place Outreach, Inc.
Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter, located at 514 E. Henry St., provides support for troubled children and teens in Savannah and the surrounding area. The shelter is open 24 hours a day to youth in crisis, adolescents who are homeless, young people who have been abused and runaway youth. The shelter is also a valuable resource for youth who may be contemplating ways to run away. Opened in 1984 as Marshlands Foundation, Inc. (dba the Savannah Runaway Home), Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter provides counseling and other services to boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 17. The organization’s goal is to keep kids off the street and reunify families whenever possible.

Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter is an equal opportunity provider and employer. This program is supported in part by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, USDA Breakfast/Lunch Program, Georgia Department of Community Affairs, Georgia Department of Human Services, City of Savannah, United Way, FEMA and other community resources.

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

All washers and dryers will continue to take coins, giving residents the flexibility of choosing which method of payment is best for them.

“We know how valuable our residents’ time is,” said Scott Winslow, the company’s director of property management. “By installing new machines and state-of-the-art coinless systems, residents will be able to spend less time worrying about their laundry and still receive the same top-notch service they’ve come to expect from Kole Management and apartmentsavannah.com.”
