Film Featuring Savannah Youth Shelter Selected for National Conference

(SAVANNAH, GA) Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter is pleased to announce that the award-winning documentary, The Greenest Building, will be shown in Savannah at the National Preservation Conference, PastForward, on November 13, 2014. Narrated by David Ogden Stiers and produced in 2011 by Jane Turville, the film prominently features the East Henry Street facility that houses the Shelter.

“The intention of the PastForward Preservation Studio Film Series is to highlight preservation efforts in all shapes and sizes happening around the country,” said Susan West Montgomery, Senior Director of Preservation Resources at the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “The Greenest Building is a natural choice for the series as it ties into some of the Conference’s key concepts.”

The film explores whether a newly constructed green building is the most sustainable choice and shows how renovation and adaptive use of existing structures can fully achieve the same environmentally friendly goals.

“The Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter was renovated in 2008 and was one of the first LEED-certified nonprofit buildings in Savannah,” explained executive director Linda K. Hilts. “We are thrilled that our building was highlighted in this acclaimed documentary and that Savannahians will have the opportunity to see it at the PastForward Conference.”

Recognized in 2011 with a People’s Choice Bronze Telly Award and CINE Golden Eagle Award, The Greenest Building will be shown on Thursday, November 13, 2014, from 2:50-3:50 p.m. at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center.

Dr. Angela Canfield Introduces E4D Single Visit Crown Technology

Dr. Angela Canfield Introduces E4D Single Visit Crown Technology

(SAVANNAH/RINCON, GA) Angela Canfield, DDS, announces E4D Single Visit Crowns have been introduced to her two dental offices located in Rincon and Savannah, GA. The E4D System is one of the few technologies for the creation of precise, color-matched ceramic dental restorations in one office visit.

Most dental restorative methods require more than one visit to the dentist. This means that on the patient’s first visit, they get an injection of anesthesia, their tooth prepared, an impression taken and a temporary restoration put on the tooth. Making a second appointment for a couple of weeks later, the patient then gets another injection, has the temporary removed and a permanent restoration put on.

With E4D technology, the procedure is done in a single appointment. This provides many advantages for patient, including: a minimally invasive procedure, fewer injections and discomfort, and biocompatible solutions while fabricating long lasting restorations in a cost effective way. More of the natural tooth is saved as well.

The first step in the procedure is to prepare the tooth. Dr. Canfield removes all tooth decay and creates a divergent occlusal axial wall. Next, an impression is made using a covering of titanium dust. This dust allows the camera to take a highly detailed picture of the tooth. Images are formulated with the E4D system, which utilizes an infrared wavelength. Sometimes a tiny polyvinyl impression is taken as well.

The E4D system has three major components: the acquisition device, 3D CAD software and a milling device. The acquisition device is a high-quality camera and a medical grade computer, which functions to photograph the prepared tooth. Three-dimensional images are created of the tooth on the screen, which Dr. Canfield uses to design the perfect ceramic restoration. The milling device manufactures the custom restoration from the specifications entered into the computer. A ceramic block, which best resembles the existing tooth color is chosen and placed into the unit. Within 15 minutes, the full crown, onlay, inlay or veneer is complete. The restoration is made of compressed porcelain, which enhances the strength and durability.

Before affixing the restoration to the tooth, Dr. Canfield will stain and glaze it to become a beautiful restoration, customized to the patient’s mouth. It is then affixed to the tooth with dental cement. The quality of the results is the same as the laboratory-generated restoration, but the E4D system saves time and money for the patient.

For questions or concerns about E4D technology, please contact Dr. Canfield at 912-826-4037 or molar799@yahoo.com.

Master Jewelry Craftsman Gregory Crawford Brings Collection to Savannah for a Rare Public Showing

Master Jewelry Craftsman Gregory Crawford Brings Collection to Savannah for a Rare Public Showing
Holds U.S. Patent for the Holo-Gem pendant and one of his rare Holo-Gem fire opal pendants is now part of the Smithsonian’s National Gem Collection.

(SAVANNAH, GA) Internationally acclaimed jewelry craftsman Gregory Crawford is bringing his unique jewelry creations to Savannah for a rare public showing. Craig Burgess of A & C Gold and Diamonds has invited the master designer to display his collections at the store’s Savannah location on October 24 and 25. The craftsman also will be available for limited private consultations by appointment only.

“Gregory has literally spent a lifetime in the jeweler’s workshop studio, devoting the last quarter century to designing and building beautiful settings for extraordinary gemstones,” said Burgess. “I look to him as a mentor and friend, and am so pleased to host his exquisite works of art here in Savannah.”

Crawford holds a U.S. Patent for the Holo-Gem pendant and one of his rare Holo-Gem fire opal pendants is now part of the Smithsonian’s National Gem Collection. He began his life’s work in 1972 at the age of 20 in Macon, GA. It was there where he and Burgess first met when Burgess was a teenager. Crawford has devoted the last quarter century to designing and building intricate settings for superior gemstones.

“With each piece, my mission is to go far beyond simply creating a device to secure a stone,” Crawford explained. “Each piece must possess that unquantifiable quality of beauty and grace.”

Using only simple tools and traditional methods of hand carving, finishing and setting, Crawford is especially fine-tuned to the fact that there are usually powerful and meaningful life events which spark a fine jewelry commission.

Crawford’s showing in Savannah will coincide with Burgess’ celebration of his 35th anniversary as the local authority on rare and beautiful objects and his return to the business after a medical sabbatical, as well as the one-year anniversary of the re-opening of his company, A & C Gold and Diamonds.

In conjunction with the celebration, Burgess is also inviting the public to receive a free examination and digital photograph of a gem using A&C Gold and Diamonds’ state-of-the-art high definition photography equipment throughout the month of October. The camera system produces a detailed image of the gem that can be used for insurance identification purposes, or to complement an appraisal.

For more information, and to schedule a personal one-on-one appointment with master craftsman Gregory Crawford, contact Craig Burgess, founder, A & C Gold and Diamonds at 912.224.3247 or www.acgoldandsilver.com.

Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter Partners with Olde Pink House

Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter Partners with Olde Pink House to Offer Monthly Cooking Classes

Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter, Inc. is the only facility in Savannah and Chatham County that serves youth age 11 to 17, who are going through a stressful period at home or who are victims of physical and/or mental abuse.

As part of its progressive program offering, PPO will partner with the famous Olde Pink House restaurant in Savannah to offer monthly cooking classes to kids, conducted by one of Pink House’s expert chefs.

On the second Saturday of each month, a chef from the Pink House will conduct a cooking class from 1-4 p.m. That evening, the class will enjoy the meal they have learned to prepare by dining at the Pink House. Classes began October 11 and the menu will change according to the season. The next scheduled class is Saturday, November 8.

The program was the brainchild of Pink House General Manager, Craig Jeffress, after meeting with two residents of PPO who worked in restaurants. Jeffress took a tour of the shelter and was impressed by what he had observed. He decided he wanted to do more for the organization than the traditional gift certificates for auction items. This fun, instructional program of hands-on involvement was the result.

The cost of participation is $125 per person, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit PPO. “We are pretty booked up through the end of the year already,” said Jack Levine, president of the Park Place board of directors. “However, we will continue holding the classes in January and next year.”

Rivers & Glen Trading Co. Announce Grand Opening October 24 in Savannah

Rivers & Glen Trading Co. Announce Grand Opening October 24 in Savannah

(SAVANNAH, GA) Rivers & Glen Trading Co. announces the grand opening ceremony on Friday, October 24, of their second location at 24 Drayton St. in Savannah, Ga. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place in front of the new store at 5:15 p.m. in true Rivers & Glen style with the ribbon being made out of fly fishing line. Hors d’oeuvres will follow, catered by The Olde Pink House.

Ben Austin, a representative of the Orvis Corporation, will host a fly fishing casting demonstration at noon in conjunction with the grand opening celebrations planned.

The owner of Rivers & Glen Trading Co., Walker Hopkins said, “I am extremely excited to expand our branch to Savannah. I love the coastal Georgia region, and the marshes and rivers around this area align perfectly with our brand.”

In August 2010, Hopkins bought Rivers & Glen Trading Co. from Vince and Gayle Ardrey. Before owning the Augusta store, Hopkins was an avid shopper at Rivers & Glen and worked there. Previously, Hopkins had worked as a real estate agent.

One of Hopkins goals for his leadership at Rivers & Glen was to revive the art of fly fishing in Georgia. Sportsmen can fly fish in the Savannah River, Saluda River and private ponds. The Rivers & Glen store in Savannah will be offering different fly fishing lessons, tying workshops and other educational opportunities on proper techniques.

“People tend to think the only thing you can do with a fly rod is go trout fishing. They don’t realize how many species can be caught by fly fishing, such as bream, crappie, bass, stripers, red fish and tarpon,” Hopkins said, “If you can fish somewhere with a spinning rod, you can use a fly rod and have twice as much fun, really feeling the satisfaction of artfully perfecting your cast.”

Hopkins grew up in Thomson, Ga. He was the oldest of his brothers and raised by his stay-at-home mom, Liz, and his stepfather, Bill, who was a cattle farmer. His father, Vic Grout, was a banker. Hopkins studied at University of Georgia and Augusta State University. In high school and college, Hopkins worked at his stepfather’s farm, feeding cattle and growing wheat and hay crops.

“Growing up in a small town and working on the farm, it became natural for me to be in the woods and outdoors all the time. It makes sense that I would wind up owning a store that offers outdoor clothing, fly fishing gear and sporting supplies to explore with,” Hopkins said.

Hopkins lives in Thomson, GA with his wife, Melissa Hodges Hopkins, daughter, Mary Lyles Hopkins and son Boone Hodges Grout Hopkins. When he isn’t managing his two stores, Hopkins enjoys golf, fishing, hunting and other outdoor activities.

During the opening of his second location, Hopkins plans on giving away prizes such as a leather and canvas Filson Bag. For more information about the grand opening celebration and the Savannah branch of Rivers & Glen, call 912.349.2352 or visit riversandglen.com .
