THE TRIAD’S BEST 2015

triadsbest2015

 

Let’s get one thing out of the way before you devour the Yes! Weekly 2015 Best Of the Triad issue: We wouldn’t be able to honor the stellar people, growing businesses, exceptional services and elegant bathrooms without your help. The Triad is exploding with creativity and innovation, and honoring these leaders would not be possible without the support from all of you, the readers of Yes! Weekly.

Tallying up the votes, connecting with business owners, engaging with readers… this is all part of what makes us jubilant when compiling the data that allows us to build this issue. We can’t thank you enough for participating, and we certainly can’t thank you enough for investing your time, money, and energy into the most exciting locations in North Carolina.

Hopefully you’re sitting with a cocktail made by the Triad’s best bartender, or eating a meal prepared at one of the area’s best restaurants, or twirling your hair that was recently styled at the best salon, but either way, we are appreciative that you’re spending your time learning about all the things that make Triad the best place to live. Cheers to the winners and the runners-up, and a special toast to the businesses who did not make the list, but who also keep the vibrant energy palpable.

What is Revived?

In a time when society is trying to convince our youth that life is all about self; self-indulgence, self-centeredness, self-reliance, our desire is to help the youth see that’s its really about surrendering self and relying on Jesus.

In Psalm 119:50 we read “Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.” We desire to see our youth find comfort in God’s promises.  To renew, recharge, rejuvenate, and rekindle their faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Invite your friends, family, and youth groups to join us for our seventh year of providing this awesome opportunity to reconnect with God through praise, worship, and service.
With all the negative influences our youth face on a daily basis, we feel it is very important to offer our youth as many opportunities as possible to:

  • Grow stronger in their faith
  • Meet and fellowship with other young Christians
  • Hear strong sermons and messages that relate to them
  • Hear testimonials from their peers so they realize that sharing their story can be “cool”
  • Realize that Christian music can be modern, fun, and relevant to them

A memorial fund has been set up for the family of Alexander Perez

WS/FC Schools photo of Alexander Perez

A memorial fund has been established for Alexander Perez, the 10-year-old boy who died Monday March 9, 2015 after he was struck by a SUV in southern Winston-Salem.
The Alexander T. Perez Memorial Fund is at Carolina Bank at 275 N. Stratford Road in Winston-Salem.

George Stabolitis, the owner of The Carriage House Restaurant, said he established the fund because many people want to help the Perez family. The proceeds will go toward helping the family pay funeral costs and other expenses, Stabolitis said.

A graveside service for Alexander was held Friday March 13, 2013 at Mount Gur Cemetery in Kernersville.

For more information, call Carolina Bank at (336) 747-1900.

Twin City Kiwanis Club’s Pancake Jamboree Friday, February 6th 2015

pancakes

For more information click here to visit their website.

 

YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THE 2015 PANCAKE JAMBOREE ON FRIDAY, FEB. 6, at the BENTON CONVENTION CENTER.

Friday, February 6 marks the return of one of my favorite events in the community and one of the best places to get people together over food: the Twin City Kiwanis Club’s Pancake Jamboree! This annual event, which draws hundreds of people, will be held at downtown the Benton Convention Center from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

It’s a great experience for which people have queued up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The appeal of the Jamboree is that it’s one of the few times you might enjoy a down-home meal, family-style, among friends and co-workers-a rarity in the fast-paced world we live in today. The great thing is, you’ll probably run into people you might not have seen all winter and share a little time together.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for children under 12. Proceeds benefit the Twin City Kiwanis Clubs community projects.
