Sun Ray Cinema first opened 1927 as the Riverside Theatre, the cinema was the first in the city equipped to screen films with sound. Under new leadership Sun-Ray Cinema is restoring the theatre, with the goal of making it the anchor for the neighborhood that it once was. The theatre screens new blockbusters, the best of the films that typically fly beneath the radar, and everything in between with the highest standards of presentation and experience.

Sustainable Springfield is a 501c3 non-profit in Historic Springfield in Jacksonville, Florida. They are working to turn local liabilities into local assets. Their first project was to turn a vacant blighted lot in to a vibrant Community Garden. The community garden has been very successful and received a Keep Jacksonville Beautiful Award from the Mayor in 2010.
