🌱 2nd Big Dan’s Car Wash Open + Woodstock Public Safety Foundation


Hi all. It’s me, Nicole Fallon-Peek, your host of the Woodstock-Towne Lake Daily β€” here to tell you all the most important things happening locally. Let’s dive right in.

First, today’s weather:

A thunderstorm in spots. High: 93 Low: 77.

Here are the top five stories today in Woodstock-Towne Lake:

  1. The second Woodstock location of Big Dan’s Car Wash is officially open. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held yesterday at 300 Gold Creek Trail after its opening on Jul 1. The express car wash will be open seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (MDJOnline.com)
  2. Childcare centers across the nation are struggling to stay open due to inflation and staffing shortages. The Bells Ferry Learning Center in Woodstock had to increase payroll by 8 percent to counteract inflation like gas prices affecting staff. As a result, the center had to raise tuition costs and bargain shop for school supplies. (11Alive.com WXIA)
  3. The Woodstock Public Safety Foundation will have a table at the 24th Annual Woodstock Summer Concert on Saturday, Jul. 9. The foundation will be selling raffle tickets to benefit firefighter David Gray, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer. All proceeds will go to the family.

Are you a Woodstock-Towne Lake resident looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?

Bloomberg recently asked experts where they’d invest $100,000 right now, and many of them had the same answer: fine art.

Thinking you can’t afford a Picasso? Well in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securitization of artwork. A company called Masterworks.io built the largest platform for buying and selling art securities. In the past, you could only buy shares of companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.

Meaning, you can invest in shares of million-dollar artwork. And in uncertain times, it turns out, fine art may be a wise investment. Here’s why:

  • Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
  • Contemporary art historically returns 23.2% when inflation is >3%
  • Contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
