Crooked Creek Art League (CCAL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit consisting of over
100 artists from Chapin and the surrounding lake communities.
They partnered with the Town of Chapin
to launch a community art project that
will culminate Labor Day 2019 in a
highly visible multi-part public art display. 
The concept for “The Arts Sail Into Chapin” is emblematic of the town itself, thirteen free standing aluminum sailboats creatively painted or embellished by local artists. While they have received a philanthropic endowment to partially fund the project
and a grant from the South Carolina Arts Commission, they are excited to also be partnering with the local business community to fully bring this project to life.

NATIONAL
CBD DAY
On August 8th, National CBD Day recognizes the natural hemp product everyone’s clamoring for!
Learn about CBD and updated laws impacting its use.
Over the years, hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol) has made quite a name for itself in the wellness world.
Since a growing number of products, from
tinctures to topicals, hit the marketplace, CBD continues to be shoppers’ favorite option for holistic alternatives.
As an added bonus, CBD does not possess the psychoactive properties
of THC.
Another advantage of CBD is
that it is naturally sourced and extremely versatile. Try swallowing it, vaping it, rubbing it on your skin, or bathing in it.
You can even give it to your pets!
Through the Ages
The hemp plant has withstood the test of time and politics; herbalists have long used hemp to promote wellness, while farmers have grown it as a source of fiber to make cloth and rope. But in the 20th century, governments clamped down on all things cannabis and everything related to it.
Nowadays, political leaders recognize what scientists long knew: properly sourced
CBD won’t get you high. Since 2018, the federal government has defined hemp, which has little or no THC in it (less than .03% to be exact), as a legal plant that
is distinct from marijuana.
Therefore, hemp-based products like CBD oil don’t fall under national anti-drug laws.
NATIONAL HAPPINESS HAPPENS DAY
Smile on August 8th to share in
National Happiness Happens Day.
On this day each year just let it happen. You know. Happiness. 
Because happiness happens. 
The day encourages happiness all day. Recognize every moment of glee,
joy, delight, and pleasure.
 Don’t let it pass. Most importantly, a flicker of a giggle should be given its due and should it blossom into full-blown happiness, don’t be surprised. It happens!
"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Another element of the day prohibits the squashing of other people’s happiness. From time to time, we might find others happiness might seem irritating.
Those moments happen when we have particularly rotten days. However, our
bad days don’t give us the right to
squash another person’s joy.
Instead, allow their delight in the day to infect us. Perhaps, their ability to smile will blow the storm clouds away from your day.
NATIONAL FROZEN
CUSTARD DAY
When it comes to scooping up a delicious celebration, National Frozen Custard Day on August 8th knows how to do it right! With a smooth texture and fresh flavor, frozen custard delights in many ways. 
Similar to ice cream, frozen custard is made with eggs in addition to cream and sugar. The dessert comes in several flavors. Franchises and custard shops all across the country cater to perfecting this creamy dessert and all its delicious options. Mixing it up with toppings such as syrups, nuts and fruits, custard is another
satisfying version of ice cream.
In fact, ice cream vendors, Archie and Elton Kohr, invented frozen custard on Coney Island, New York in 1919.
They found that adding egg yolks to ice cream created a smoother texture and helped the ice cream stay cold longer.
In their first weekend, the Kohr brothers sold 18,640 cones on the boardwalk. 
More Frozen Custard Facts
  • Its popularity grew in 1933 when frozen custard found a market at the World’s Fair in Chicago. 
  • Milwaukee, Wisconsin became known as the unofficial frozen custard capital of the world.
  • The United States Food and Drug Administration requires frozen custard products to contain at least 10 percent milkfat and 1.4 percent egg yolk solids.
  • Because of the egg yolk, frozen custard must be carefully prepared.
  • Frozen custard is commonly prepared fresh at the place of sale.
NATIONAL SNEAK SOME ZUCCHINI INTO YOUR NEIGHBOR'S PORCH DAY
Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day on August 8th offers gardeners a way to rid themselves of extra produce. For some, this day offers a way to rid their garden of an overproducing squash plant. 
Did you know that zucchini was a fruit? Well, if you’re a gardener, you know this fact already. You also know that zucchini grows in abundance and is ready
for harvest in August. 
Zucchini growers also know that one plant of zucchini allows you to share this wonderful treat!
Zucchini is also incredibly helpful with weight loss. The produce is low in calories, high in fiber, and full of water.
As such, when you eat it, your tummy doesn’t feel empty, therefore less likely to overeat. If your zucchini produces well,
add it to soups, salads, and baked goods. 
When you receive a zucchini on your porch, savor the delicious squash.
Eat if fresh by slicing it.
Other ways to use it are:
  • To preserve zucchini, shred it and freeze it in freezer bags to use later.
  • Baking it into quick breads and delivering it to a neighbor will also please them.
  • Add zucchini slices to tomato sauces or pasta dishes.
  • Make a stir-fry and add zucchini to the vegetables.
  • Grill the zucchini. Add garlic and Parmesan.


NATIONAL DOLLAR DAY
National Dollar Day on August 8th commemorates the day Congress established the U.S. monetary system
in 1786. 
In 1862, the United States printed its first dollar bill. Do you know whose face was printed there? It wasn’t George Washington. The first dollar bill featured Salmon P. Chase, President Lincoln’s Secretary of Treasury. 
Interestingly, the dollar bill in our pockets today hasn’t been changed for more than 50 years. While the $5, $10, $20, and $50 earned redesigns in recent years, the single remains unchanged.
Due to counterfeiting, redesigns keep the larger currencies ahead of counterfeiters.
However, the single doesn’t face attention the more significant notes see.
Above the right number 1 on the face side of the dollar, a tiny bird peeks out.
Whether it’s an owl, an eagle or another such bird is uncertain.
Like other embedded in the bill’s design,
it fuels man conspiracy theories.
Speaking of conspiracy theories, the pyramid on the back fuels a few.
It’s part of the Great Seal of the United States. However, the truth of the pyramid represents several things.
You’ll find 13 steps on the pyramid equaling the 13 original colonies.
The unfinished top represents a young country growing and expanding.
Finally, the Eye of Providence with the Latin motto Annuit Coeptis, which means, “It is favorable to our undertakings.”
The number 13 is represented on the dollar bill in several places.
Do you know where else?
Opposite the pyramid is an eagle.
The image represents both war and peace. In the eagle’s left talon it holds arrows and in its right an olive branch.
How many arrows do you think the eagle holds? If you guessed 13, you’d be right.
Above the eagle’s head, there’s a cloud with a constellation.
How many stars are in the constellation?
Again the number 13 is represented.
The eagle includes a shield 13 stripes
