Pensacola Chocolate Fest April 26th

Posted on: April 20th, 2014 by Candy

 

Please join the Gulf Coast Kid’s House Board of Directors for Chocolate Fest 2014.  We will present our 11th annual chocolate lover’s extravaganza on Saturday, April 26 at Cordova Mall.

This chocolate is for a cause.  By participating in the 11th Annual Chocolate Fest, you are helping to raise funds that ensure child victims of abuse and neglect receive timely, effective and streamlined treatment.  At Gulf Coast Kid’s House, we facilitate a collaborative response to the abuse cases; ensuring that medical exams, recorded interviews, prosecution, and mental health counseling occur in one child-friendly facility.  This “one-stop” concept greatly reduces the trauma children experience and leads to better case outcomes.  In 2012, GCKH provided services to approximately 2000 child victims of abuse and neglect.  Please consider joining us for Chocolate Fest 2014.  This annual event brings much needed awareness and support to GCKH and child abuse issues.

GCKH serves a critical role in our community, giving abused children a safe, child-centered place to report the abuse they have suffered and providing timely, effective assistance designed to address the specific trauma each child has experienced. Through this coordinated effort, children and families experience reduced trauma and better case coordination, leading to better case outcomes.

Deluna Treasure Hunt

Posted on: April 18th, 2014 by brent

CLUE ONE

The ones that came first were wrecked

but one is giving up its secrets.

Those who study it have a marker

you can see from slightly west.

 

By the wayside, see center and stone

and neither should get a snub.

The key you seek is in the name

of the third and final club.

 

CLUE TWO

African-American history here

may be found in a new brochure.

You may have noticed it before

while on this very tour.

 

Spend some time to read it.

And find your key in the name

of the Spanish admiral who

had their help to build the fort.

 

CLUE THREE

Yellow fever came in waves in Pensacola

filling the cemeteries in multiple years.

In a corner of the mason’s ground

ten small stones tell one of these years.

 

West of these another year’s victim rests,

her importance supported by historic names.

Amid older dates on a newer stone,

your key is the longest word you see.

CLUE FOUR

A new marker’s on the busy street

that runs behind the new-named center.

Read of the storm-delayed dedication

that happened in ’07 and not ’06.

 

Fifty years it housed the rites

only to be outgrown.

Your key names the group on the

marker that finally moved on.

 

CLUE FIVE

Seek Pace area history online and

find Friends of the Pace Library.

In their local history project M. Luther

introduces a Creek Grand Chief.

 

American Brigadier General, Spanish consular agent,

and silent partner in a trading company,

his true allegiance was always to his tribesmen.

Your key is in the name of this remarkable chief.

CLUE SIX

The old city hall has new exhibits

but T.T. is still represented.

Take the new tour to see

how all of this began.

 

Some relics remain but

the shipwreck’s a loss.

Your key’s in the name of

the first flag’s cross.

ABOUT DAN + SHAY

Nashville newcomers Dan + Shay became the most added new duo of 2013 at country radio with their breakout debut hit “19 You + Me.” Rising into the Top 20 on the Country Chart after only 13 weeks, the track was written by the pair along with Nashville songwriter Danny Orton. The nostalgic feel-good single is the first track from their forthcoming album, due out later this year on Warner Bros. Records. Made up of Dan Smyers, a Pittsburgh, PA native, and Shay Mooney, originally of Natural Dam, AR, the two realized they had a special musical connection after meeting at a party at Smyers’ house in his tented out living room only one year ago. What started as a late night jam session among new friends, led to daily writing sessions that resulted in songs which quickly caught the attention of publishers, label heads and radio programmers alike. Written entirely by Smyers and Mooney, produced by Smyers and co-produced by Scott Hendricks and Orton, the duo are putting the finishing touches on the yet to be titled debut album. Dan + Shay are excited to bring their infectious original sound to fans on the upcoming Hunter Hayes “We’re Not Invisible” and Blake Shelton “Ten Times Crazier 2014” tours.
