Free Family Day @ Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center, Savannah

October 5th, 2021

Telfair Museums Savannah Jepson Center Free Family Day 2021 October

FREE Family Day Oct. 16 – featuring Sonya Clark: Finding Freedom – for Savannah-Chatham residents @ Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center

A large fabric canopy draped overhead and spanning an entire museum gallery greets visitors to Sonya Clark: Finding Freedom, which opened Oct. 1 at the Jepson Center.

From 10AM-to 5PM on Sat. Oct. 16 2021, Savannah and Chatham County residents can view the exhibition free as part of Telfair Museums’ Free Family Day at the Jepson Center. They can also see Heavy is the Crown, a newly opened exhibition by the artist Noel W Anderson.

Telfair’s presentation of the immersive installation by Clark, an artist and Amherst College professor, offers a celestial viewpoint that encourages viewers to consider freedom-seeking enslaved individuals whose forced labor built America’s wealth. Draped as if a night sky overhead, the large-scale canopy is pieced together from cyanotype reactive fabric squares made with the help of workshop participants over the course of Clark’s various residencies.

Often under cover of night with bounty hunters at their heels, enslaved individuals seeking freedom used the constellations like the Big Dipper to orient their way north along the Underground Railroad—a network of people, safe houses, and clandestine routes in the early to mid-19th century used to escape from states, such as Georgia, that sanctioned slavery, into Northern states and Canada.

On Sept. 30, Clark delivered Telfair’s free, annual Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Lecture to a full crowd  at the Jepson Center, with funding provided by the Jacob and Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence Foundation, the City of Savannah, and the Georgia Council for the Arts.

Sonya Clark: Finding Freedom is organized by the Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin and Marshall College in collaboration with Telfair Museums and is curated by Amy Moorefield. The presentation at Telfair is curated by Erin Dunn, curator of modern and contemporary art.

(Savannah Pediatric Dentists) Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill on tips for good oral health for kids

September 30th, 2021

Savannah dentists pediatric dental children's Kidstree RIchmond Hill Pooler

Kid’s Dentistree, Richmond Hill

Below is a guest post by Kid’s Dentistree – a pediatric dentist in Richmond Hill.

In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, Kid’s Dentistree is celebrating all the hardworking dental hygienists and sharing tips for maintaining good oral health. 

National Dental Hygiene Month is observed every October in the United States. Dental hygiene refers to the ways in which we keep our mouth, teeth and gums clean and healthy. Colgate.com explains that the goal of this awareness month is to celebrate the work dental hygienists do and spread the word about the importance of good oral health.

What do dental hygienists do?

When most people think of dental hygienists, they think of a teeth cleaning. However, the American Dental Association (ADA) highlights the many additional responsibilities hygienists hold. These include examining your mouth, taking your blood pressure and pulse, and assessing your overall health and wellness. Hygienists also take dental x-rays to check for any problems in places that aren’t easily visible, such as in between or underneath your teeth. They also educate patients about good nutrition and ways to keep a healthy mouth. The cleaning itself involves removing plaque and tartar from around your gum line, followed by thoroughly brushing and flossing your teeth.

How do I maintain good oral health?

MouthHealthy.org, an ADA website, emphasizes the importance of maintaining your oral health at all stages of life. Understanding proper brushing and flossing techniques and eating a well-balanced diet can go a long way toward preventing cavities. It’s also essential to see your hygienist on a regular basis to help remove tartar build-up and detect any potential problems before they worsen. This can even help you save money by avoiding costly dental treatments down the road.

Take advantage of your dental benefits!

Most dental insurances cover two annual cleanings and exams at little or no cost. If you have dental insurance and haven’t had your second visit for the year, now’s the time to take advantage of your benefits and schedule your appointment. If you do not have insurance, don’t worry. Give Kid’s Dentistree a call and ask about the discount options available to you.

Visit Kid’s Dentistree’s website or call (912) 756-5437 to schedule your child’s visit today.

The Kid’s Dentistree office is located in the “Clock Tower” building, right next to The Suites at Station Exchange on Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill.

Donate diapers, baby wipes to OVER THE MOON’s Community Diaper Drive, Savannah

September 30th, 2021

Community Diaper Drive Savannah Pooler Over the Moon

“OVER THE MOON” Community Diaper Drive Sept. 22- Oct. 6, 2021

OVER THE MOON (Coastal Georgia’s only diaper bank) is holding a Community Diaper Drive Sept 22 through Oct. 6 throughout the Savannah area. You can help by dropping off diapers, training pants, or unscented baby wipes at any of the donation barrel sites listed online here.  OTM’s donation wish list is available through Target and the items ship directly to OVER THE MOON.

1 in 3 families’ health is threatened because they cannot afford to buy basic hygiene essentials. Safety-net programs, such as WIC and Food Stamps awarded through SNAP, do NOT cover the cost of diapers – taxed items in the state of Georgia.

OVER THE MOON’s Diaper Drive coincides with National Diaper Bank Awareness week which draws attention to the issue of diaper need in the U.S.

Savannah’s OVER THE MOON is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit in Coastal Georgia which provides diaper bundles, period supplies, and other hygiene necessities through partner agencies, community events and directly to families as-needed. OVER THE MOON aims to end “diaper need” and “period poverty” because they believe in dignity for all, no matter how big or small.

You can help OVER THE MOON meet their 2021 goal to collect over 50,000 diapers (wipes, too!) by contributing to this Community Diaper Drive 9/22-10/6. Public Donation Barrel locations throughout the Savannah area include:
