Historic Downtown Summerville will be the place to be for another delightful Third Thursday. A few of the community partners that will be out tonight are:
This month we have some exciting things for children to do. In Hutchinson Square we will have an over-sized checker game on the ground, hoola hoops, bubbles and balloons. Hugo the robot will be on Little Main Street. He was built by Summerville and Ashley Ridge High School students as part of an international program calledFIRST Robotic Competition (FRC). Team 3489 Category 5 built him in a 6-week time frame in early 2013 to play the game Ultimate Ascent. Hugo is Team 3489’s ambassador for outreach promoting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) everywhere he travels. To learn more about FRC Team 3489 Category please visit www.team3489.org, like FRC Team 3489 on Facebook or contact Vickie Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We will have music by the Scotty Oliver and Friends band with their own singer and songwriter who plays the Blues, Americana and has soul roots. Hear them play in Hutchinson Square. Faith will be singing away with her Ukulele right in front of Town Hall. Danny Thomas will be in front of O'Lacy's Pub on Short Central waiting for you to stop by. Be sure to hear Michael Wolk, an accordionist who plays French, Gypsy, Latin, Celtic and Italian music. You can find him in the Courtyard behind Guerin's Pharmacy. People, Places and Quilts will have the effervescent Charleston Hot Shots with their very special sound.

Sculpture in the South will be holding the dedication of the “Tufted Titmouse” sculpture at The Village Knittery at 6:00 pm on Thursday. The sculpture was created by artist Paul Rhymer and is being given to the Town by the Grimsley Family in honor of Elsie Grimsley, the founder and owner of the Flowertown Florist. The Grimsleys are especially excited that the new bird sculpture has found its home at The Village Knittery, since they have great respect and affection for Dr. and Mrs. James Spearman, who own the Knittery.
(There is only ONE B.I.R.D.S. sculpture available for sponsorship: the Grackle, which is scheduled to be installed on the roof of the Cauthen building that houses “People, Places & Quilts.” If you are interested, call Sculpture in the South at 851-7800, or email email@example.com )
