Females in Action (FiA) @ Sanford Creek Elementary School (main entrance)
Apr 29 @ 8:15 am – 9:15 am

Females in Action (FiA) is a fitness and faith-focused group for women. Our workouts are FREE, peer-led, and predominantly take place outdoors. Women of all skill levels and walks of life are welcome, since our motto is “no woman left behind.” Whether leading workouts, encouraging fellow PAX (our affectionate name for members of the FiA community!), or reaching goals once thought impossible, FiA women achieve a higher level of confidence and leadership skills. We have an amazing sense of community which fosters incredible friendships. FiA makes no representation with regard to the skill level of our peer leaders, and no member of FiA is monetarily compensated for her contributions. It is the sense of community, belonging, and enhanced self (physically, mentally, and emotionally) that keeps women coming back and introducing others to FiA.”

We meet at Sanford Creek Elementary School (main entrance) every Saturday, rain or shine from 8:15am-9:15am. No equipment is required and all women are welcomed. Feel free to contact Kristy Cooper with any questions: kristycooper13@yahoo.com

HPC Archaeology Workshop @ Alston-Massenburg Center
Apr 29 @ 10:00 am

HPC Archaeology Workshop April 29

The Wake Forest Historic Preservation Commission will host an Archaeology Workshop on Saturday, April 29, at the site of the Ailey Young House. The workshop will be partially funded with a federal Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grant awarded by the State Historic Preservation Office (HPO) through the National Park Service’s Certified Local Government Program (CLG).

The Ailey Young House is located along North White Street, north of Spring Street and south of the Wake Forest Cemetery. The one-and-one-half story saddlebag house is a rare example of Reconstruction-era rental housing that was the childhood home of Allen Young, an important educator in the history of Wake Forest.  It is the oldest known African American historic resource within Wake Forest.

The April 29 workshop is open to everyone, but may be of particular interest to those with an interest in history, historic preservation and archaeology. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required at www.wakeforestnc.gov/archaeology-workshop.aspx. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Registrants may choose from one of the following start times: 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and 2 p.m. Each workshop is approximately two hours and each group is limited to 30 participants.

Participants will meet at the Alston-Massenburg Center, 416 N. Taylor St., at the appointed time for a brief presentation on the Ailey Young House and to view artifacts collected from the site. Staff from the Office of State Archaeology will also be on hand to discuss appropriate methods of artifact collection and interpretation.

Following the presentation, participants will proceed to the Ailey Young House site to view the structure and participate in a ground penetrating radar demonstration by New South Associates.

The Ailey Young House site is not an improved site, so it is not handicapped accessible. The archaeology workshop is not recommended for anyone who has difficulty walking or moving around.

Participants should dress appropriately for being outdoors by wearing protective clothing, sunscreen, insect repellent, hats, and appropriate shoes (no sandals or flip-flops). 

Parking will be available at the Alston Massenburg Center and along Taylor Street. Parking will also be provided along Spring Street and within the Wake Forest Cemetery. Participants are asked to be respectful in the event a funeral is scheduled on the day of the workshop.

For more information, contact Senior Planner Michelle Michael at 919-435-9516 or mmichael@wakeforestnc.gov.
