Meet Julie, y’all. Julie lives in Mills 50 with her hubby, two kids, two Frenchies, and two Italian greyhounds. And then there’s also her friend Emily, who lives behind her in the family’s guesthouse.
Julie, tell me. When your friend comes to town, what Orlando spot must you visit? My girl Nora on Virginia Drive where the outside patio never disappoints. (Editor's note: That’s Nora’s Sugar Shack for anyone not “in the know”.)
If you could have a billboard in the middle of Downtown, what would it say? Education is the key to community.
What recent story have you read about Orlando that you wish more people cared about? Getting access to vaccines for our elderly. (For extra reading, here’s a story about LYNX offering free rides to vaccination sites for our local elderly and another about the struggles to access that homebound seniors are facing.)
Tell us about a local virtual event you attended recently that you loved. Artist Series at Quantum Leap Winery! (Quantum Leap just wrapped applications to its latest exhibit last weekend.)
What's a project you're working on (big or small) and how can Pulptown readers help you with it? I sit on the Mills 50 board and am so proud of the art we support in our amazing community! (Speaking of Mills 50, Ten 10 Brewing is releasing a neighborhood-inspired beer next week and some of the proceeds will benefit Mills 50 Main Street!)
What are you celebrating in your life right now? My new position as Communications Specialist at the Charles Clayton Campus of Lake Highland Preparatory School! Go Highlanders!
