Wake Forest Community Plan Special Town Meeting
Thursday, November 15, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Wake Forest Presbyterian Church Christian Life Center, 12605 Capital Blvd.
The Town of Wake Forest is hosting a special town meeting on Thursday, November 15 to discuss the Wake Forest Community Plan. The meeting will be held from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Wake Forest Presbyterian Church Christian Life Center, 12605 Capital Blvd. Area residents, property owners, and other interested citizens are encouraged to attend. The November 15 meeting is the second in a series of planned town meetings. The first public meeting was held April 19. During the inaugural session, over 200 Wake Forest citizens voiced nearly 1,000 concerns and ideas for the future of Wake Forest. Since then, consultant Glen Harbeck has worked with the Town Board-appointed Steering Committee to review the ideas in search of common themes. These themes led directly to a new "Vision for Wake Forest." The November 15 meeting will give residents the opportunity to examine the new vision statements and identify actions to make the new vision a reality. For more information about the Wake Forest Community Plan, contact Chip Russell, Wake Forest Planning Director, at (919) 554-6142 or refer to the Town's website at http://www.wakeforestnc.gov/communityplan.aspx.

Wake Forest Public Library's 11th Birthday Celebration
Saturday, November 17; 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Wake Forest Public Library
The Wake Forest Library will celebrate its 11th "birthday" on November 17 from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at the library on Holding Avenue. The Friends of the Wake Forest Library is happy to sponsor the party, which has the theme "Cookin' with Kids." Charles the Chef will be featured and he will offer activities centered around his new book series entitled Food Adventures with Charles the Chef. The series is aimed at making kids more aware of the foods they eat. Afterwards, Miss Adrianna Montgomery, this year's Red Robin Restaurant gourmet hamburger recipe contest winner, will talk about how she became interested in cooking and will share her award-winning recipe. The Red Robin is donating copies of a recipe book compiled from recipes submitted by contest entrants. There will be fun activities, door prizes, birthday cake and punch. And, of course, be sure to look for a visit from Bookman. Though the birthday party for the library has a theme aimed at kids, the Friends of the Library would like to acknowledge the voters of the community who are responsible for the passage of a bond issue that means funding for a much-needed expansion to the library.
