FOUNTAIN INN! A CLEAR VISION CREATIVE PEOPLE!

with

A

“A clear vision and a creative group of people can transform every aspect of a town, including its economy,” says Van Broad, Fountain Inn’s Director of Economic Development. In 2005 with the development of the city Master Plan, the city set a clear vision and course for years to come. “Our council knows that an area swathed in creative energy can become an economic incubator for growth that includes the talents of a diverse population,” says Gary Long, Mayor of Fountain Inn. Jon Angell of J. Peters Grill & Bar is just that, a visionary with a creative and entrepreneurial spirit that has many successful models to build upon. J. Peters is his brainchild, and with an incredibly creative team, he has modeled quality dining experiences for people in South Carolina. Having been involved in numerous successful restaurant concepts over his ten years in South Carolina, Jon is dedicated to serving quality products and enhancing the quality of life in towns where he does business. His menu is filled with abundant portions, extraordinary flavors and a philosophy that you don’t have to sacrifice quality to provide good value. Located at 111 North Main Street in downtown Fountain Inn, J. Peters will be sure to whet your appetite. Following close on the heels of J. Peters is INN The Oven, Fountain Inn’s premier Bakery, Coffee and Ice Cream Shop, coming early this summer. INN The Oven will offer fresh baked goods, a signature pound cake and melt-in-your-mouth cupcakes. Additionally, they will serve layer cakes, cookies, muffins, brownies, pies and freshly made fudge. Custom cakes for weddings, birthdays and showers are a big part of the service that INN the Oven will offer the Upstate.

Two individual counters will also feature, INN Your Cup and INN Your Cone! From fresh brewed coffee to your favorite dipping of Hershey’s Ice Cream, there is just the right dessert made fresh every day for you. Located at 107 North Main, watch for INN the Oven opening soon. Now add LILIES ON MAIN, a fresh floral shop located at 100 North Main, to the influx of businesses opening in Fountain Inn and one begins to see the vision, rebirth and development of downtown. “With the continued growth of our Arts Center and the catalyst it has provided to the development of local businesses, our town has an enormous potential for increased cultural tourism,” says Anita Sleeman, Assistant Center Director. Guided by the steady hand of Mayor Gary Long and City Administrator Eddie Case, the town has seen significant growth in the past five years. The city will make development announcements soon regarding new commercial growth along the 418 corridor and other industrial plans. Are you looking for creative people with a clear vision?

CAFFI!

Cultural Arts Foundation Fountain Inn Creates Partnerships

“As a member of the Fountain Inn Orchestra and INNfusion, the Center’s jazz infusion group, I have been astonished and privileged to perform and witness the growth of the Center. As a performer and an educator, I am constantly being exposed to new opportunities for myself and my students and believe this is an amazing accomplishment for the citizens and town of Fountain Inn.” —Christopher R. Earle Principal Percussionist, Fountain Inn Orchestra; Faculty Member, Fountain Inn Arts Academy; Member, INNfusion

The Fountain Inn Center for Visual & Performing Arts has added new partnerships thanks to CAFFI (Cultural Arts Foundation Fountain Inn). The non-profit organization is working on raising capital, endowment, grants, and operational revenue to ensure the long-term viability of the Center. Under the direction of board President and local attorney Melvin Younts, members include: Park Sterling Bank Investment Banker Tripp Tuttle; Entrepreneur Developer John Hopkins; and Hillcrest Memorial Hospital CEO Dr. Eric Bour. Their leadership continues to create new partnership opportunities for the Center. CAFFI’S work has included partnering with The Grainger Foundation, with assistance from Grainger Manager Ryan Tiller, who stepped forward to upfit the Corporate Membership Room that will bear their name. This renovation will allow corporate meetings, sponsor receptions and more to be held in a state-of-the-art room at the historical facility. Greenville Hospital System, University Medical Center, and Hillcrest Memorial Hospital increased their partnership to support major programming at the Center including the recent successful performance of “Bye Bye Birdie.” BB&T Foundation also hosted its first membership reception in the Golden Strip as part of their contribution to the Center and Caterpillar continues to not only support the Center, but utilizes its facility to hold quarterly meetings with employees and most recently with national suppliers.

“I am a live theater and orchestral music fan and there is nothing to compare to the eclectic variety that is provided by the Fountain Inn Center for Visual & Performing Arts. I’ve ordered tickets for just about everything they present and have never been disappointed yet! I sometimes wonder where they get the fantastic talent: musical, vocal, dramatic, staging and direction! Kudos Fountain Inn!” —Bob Muller An appreciative fan!

The Center staff working with CAFFI continues to seek grants and other sources of funding with the hope that these monies will help fund programming, the endowment, and scholarships for children who cannot afford arts education. Hosting three annual events, CAFFI is building an endowment fund that will provide operational support and capital expansion. Due to the success of all the programming and the enthusiasm of its board members, CAFFI believes that the Fountain Inn Center for Visual & Performing Arts will be here for generations to come. To participate in endowment funding, volunteering for events or more information contact: 864-409-1050. “Through my participation with FIRE (Fountain Inn Repertory Experience) at the Fountain Inn Center for Visual & Performing Arts, I have gained a second family who have helped me learn life lessons I could never have learned elsewhere. I have been pushed both artistically and personally to grow, change, and ultimately become a better more confident version of myself than when I started with the company 4 years ago.” —Clint Richard Walker, FIRE Member F O U N TA I N

“My oldest daughter and I were walking into the Fountain Inn Center for Visual and Performing Arts to see “Bye Bye Birdie” and she said, “I love this place. It’s like a second family to me and when I’m here, I’m able to forget life’s problems.” Over the past few years, Nora Beth has been given the opportunity to be in 6 or 7 plays, and with each one, her confidence has grown. The love, care and encouragement of Anita Sleeman, Cheryl Pelicano, Van Broad and many of the adult and teenage actors have provided a strong foundation for every area of her life, giving her an appreciation for music and theater, motivating her to take guitar lessons and to express herself in song writing, and giving her confidence to perform an original song in her school talent show. My son has been proud to watch her and his younger sister on stage, and he is looking forward to participating in drama camp this summer. The Center truly is a gift to Fountain Inn and the surrounding communities, not only for the entertainment and education it provides, but more importantly for the life lessons and character it is giving to our children.” —Stephanie Norton, Parent F O U N TA I N
