AAS September Meeting Cancelled!

Streets Alive Festival will block streets leading to Manuel's

 

Sadly, the September Member Meeting has been cancelled. The Streets Alive Festival will be taking place on Sunday, September 28th, and portions of North Highland Avenue, North Avenue and Boulevard, including the section right in front of Manuel's, will be closed all afternoon.  It's a great street festival that allows people to walk, bike, skate and otherwise enjoy the businesses in a traffic-free environment.  However, Manuel's will not be accessible by car from noon until after 7 p.m. on the 28th.  If you were planning to pick up birdseed at the meeting, we will be holding an alternate pickup time on Sunday, September 28th from 2 PM - 5 PM at the Atlanta Audubon Society office. Please plan to attend the next AAS member meeting on October 28th where we'll hear about The Golden Eagle Project.  Stay tuned for more information.
