NEWS RELEASE –
<07-20-2012>

I just wanted to take a minute and let the patrons, followers and fans of First Friday Denton know that Robin Huttash has is now an integral member of First Friday Denton, which includes being co-administrator of this site, and also an administrator at First Friday Denton’s facebook page.

Robin, in my view, has been the shining star in all that First Friday Denton is about. Since 2010, Robin has been a valuable supporter and believer in First Friday, and has parlayed her boundless efforts in behalf of her business, A Creative Art Studio, into every single First Friday event – bringing music, art demonstrations, and a plethora of other talents to the crowds that assemble in her business – EACH AND EVERY First Friday!

Bringing Robin on board was a no brainer for me, and as the event has grown, it has taken more brains than I possess – to run. Press releases, news and interesting queries come in just about every week nowadays, and once one or perhaps two things fell through the cracks, I knew it was time to get help. Robin to the rescue. Often times, it is more important to explain to those unknown contacts what First Friday is not, than what it actually is.

While Robin is versed in the operation and dissemination of information on this site, most of that information flows through me first, and then to her. At some point, we will be sharing the same information at the same time. If you fill out the contact page, and don’t get a timely response from me, please feel free to follow up with Robin.

And if you think you want to be a part of First Friday Denton, but don’t really know what that means, go by A Creative Art Studio on a First Friday night and you will see a shining example of how to be involved with First Friday Denton. Robin has set the highest bar, and that’s what it really is all about isn’t it?

Thanks Robin, and welcome aboard.

Send in Your First Friday Announcements

Send in Your First Friday Announcements

For all the First Friday Denton participants – please have your announcements in by midnight Wednesday before First Friday. You can pretty much count on it not being published if it doesn’t arrive by Wednesday.

We obviously have some great new participants, and I took the opportunity of changing the look of the site to also add the newcomers to the site. Many of the kinks that had been finding their way into the site I’ve ironed out as well. Please join me in welcoming Atomic Candy, Seven Mile Cafe and SCRAP Denton. We also now have a permanent spot for The Chestnut Tree Tea Room. Not only do you have links in the sidebar, you will find a description of your businesses on pages that most closely match your “category” of business. As always, First Friday Denton benefits from links from you just like you benefit from links going your way from First Friday Denton.

As you peruse the new site, there is a sidebar on the right, and there is also information at the bottom. In the right sidebar, along with everything else, are the links for everyone involved. IF you have been missed, or want to be added, you will want to let me know.

December First Friday Denton in the History Books

December First Friday Denton in the History Books

We close the door on First Friday Denton for the year 2010. Of course all our participants pick up where we left off on the First Friday in January, the 7th. to be exact. February will mark the one year anniversary of First Friday Denton, and you can bet someone will be throwing a party for February’s double good First Friday.

There is still plenty of time left on the calendar for members of First Friday Denton to post any extracurricular sales or events leading up to Christmas 2010. So, if you have extended holiday hours, or any other special events, feel free to either post them in a “comment” to this post, or send the details and I will run them as they arrive.

As always, I am seeking any paparazzi style images from December’s First Friday Denton, and would love to get images from members all the time.

Thanks to all that participated in December, and all of you who continue to participate as we head toward the anniversary and beyond. I am still looking for help behind the scenes, behind the curtain so to speak, so if you have skills in advertising art, or anything else you think would be a benefit to First Friday Denton, please contact us.
