This week we are living Mr. Jerry Lee’s words to a T.
We are celebrating the new addition of Zipcar to our neighborhood and new shared space partner at First Congo! Zipcar is car-sharing, an alternative to owning a car, that gives members 24/7 access to vehicles parked right on our property. Low hourly and daily rates include gas, insurance, and 180 miles per day to go wherever you want to go. Members can reserve cars online or with a smart phone for as little as an hour or up to seven days. This year, enjoy all the freedom of owning car without any of the hassle. Find out more about how it works go to www.zipcar.com, to join go to http://members.zipcar.com/firstcongregational
As a part of the kickoff celebration, the Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market will give away yard signs, tote bags, magnets and mugs to anyone that signs up with Zipcar! We will also have free gelato courtesy of The Creamery Memphis and music by Ben Walsh and Friends to keep us shakin’ our kale feathers!
