“It’s a Beautiful Day in
the Neighborhood…”
         kay, so Mr. Rogers won’t be there. But everyone

O        else in the neighborhood will be hangin’ at
         Latta Park on Saturday, August 14, for the 32nd
Annual Dilworth Jubilee.
       The party will start early with a Carolina
Volkswagen Dilworth Jubilee 8k Road Race and will end
late with those perennial neighborhood favorites, The
‘Rents’ and ‘Underground Detour,’ each extending their
playing time on the Harris Teeter Stage by 30 minutes.
       Meanwhile, there’s no time to be superstitious
regarding this year’s Jubilee Home Tour, featuring nine
of your neighbors’ homes, kicks off at 6 P.M. until 9 P.M.
on Friday, the 13th, and continues on Saturday, the
14th, from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. Please see the separate Home
Tour story in this issue to learn about the houses that
will be open and details of the tour.
       Get a look at everybody’s favorite “Chinese”
house, actually a California airplane bungalow, on Park
Road. Check out the “before-and-after” of how a couple
put two small condos together to form one comfy, cozy
home on Kirkwood. Renovated spaces on Romany,
Kingston, Berkeley, Park Avenue and Worthington
complete the tour.
       The ever-popular water slide that entertains every
toddler in the park also will extend its time for another
hour, allowing more little ones to enjoy the fun. DCDA
Board Member KT Mills has generously agreed to
sponsor a new activity that is sure to delight children of
all ages – a caricaturist who’ll be in the park to capture
your likeness for about two hours.

                                                                         Dilworth Pediatrics is new, but Drs. Anne Walker and

                                                                  approach caregiving. It’s old-fashioned care with high-tech

                   It’s our joy in care giving. It’s treating patients like family. It’s making no decision for a patient that we
                   wouldn’t make for our own child. It’s taking time to listen. It’s the belief that teaching is essential. It’s
                   making every family member a partner in healthcare.
                         Dr. Walker learned these lessons from her father, a retired
                   pediatrician who practiced in Charlotte for 40 years. And it’s
                   a philosophy shared by Dr. Kocmond.
                         Dr. Walker is familiar to many – born in Charlotte and a
                   Myers Park High graduate. Dr. Kocmond is new to the area
                   but looks forward to developing a cooperative relationship
                   with patients and their families.
