November at Orleans Bistro & Grill
The Kapana Project
The Kapana Project is Orleans Bistro & Grills way that we serve our Senior Citizen community. Kapana Carrington-Jones is one of the older sisters to Tisha Johnson- Crump owner of Orleans Bistro & Grill. Kapana started at a young age as a CNA at a nursing home in Toledo Ohio. Kapana fell in love with this community of senior citizens over the years and decided she had found her calling. At the young age of 45 Kapana returned to school and became a nurse to advance her capabilities and knowledge to have a larger impact in her field of work. At 60 years young, she is still working her gift and providing a level of care to her patients that has everyone asking, who is that lady.
She is an inspiration to many and a jewel to those who is cared for by her. Nurses are so often overlooked for their hard work and dedication to their patients. The Kapana Project seeks ways to support, assist, feed and empower our Senior Citizen community while spreading the gift of love and compassion. If you would like to participate with the Kapana Project please notify us and let’s ignite our Senior Citizen community!
The Madeline Project
The Madeline Project is Orleans Bistro & Grills way to provide little girls a baby doll for the holidays. Madeline Maxwell-Carrington was the Mother of Tisha Johnson-Crump, Owner of Orleans Bistro & Grill. Growing up Tisha remembers on Christmas day she would arrive at the Christmas tree to find a beautiful little doll awaiting her to love on. This was both warming to the heart and soul for Tisha. Having a doll of my own was a treat I looked forward to every year. The Madeline Project goal is to distribute 100 dolls to little girls for the Holidays. If you would like to donate a doll simply drop off a doll November 1st thru December 22nd and we will distribute these dolls to local shelters, hospitals and hotels where we can find little girls in need.

Book of the Month Club November: The Glass Castle By Jeannette Walls
An account of growing up nomadic, starry-eyed, and dirt poor in the ’60s and ’70s, by gossip journalist Walls (Dish, 2000).
From her first memory, of catching fire while boiling hotdogs by herself in the trailer park her family was passing through, to her last glimpse of her mother, picking through a New York City Dumpster, Walls’s detached, direct, and unflinching account of her rags-to-riches life proves a troubling ride. Her parents, Rex Walls, from the poor mining town of Welch, West Virginia, and Rose Mary, a well-educated artist from Phoenix, love a good adventure and usually don’t take into account the care of the children who keep arriving—Lori, Jeannette, Brian, and Maureen—leaving them largely to fend for themselves.
For entrepreneur and drinker Rex, “Doing the skedaddle” means getting out of town fast, pursued by creditors. Rex is a dreamer, and someday his gold-digging tool (the Prospector), or, better, his ingenious ideas for energy-efficiency, will fund the building of his desert dream house, the Glass Castle. But moving from Las Vegas to San Francisco to Nevada and back to rock-bottom Welch provides a precarious existence for the kids—on-and-off schooling, living with exposed wiring and no heat or plumbing, having little or nothing to eat.
Protesting their paranoia toward authority and their insistence on “true values” for their children (“What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger,” chirps Mom), these parents have some dubious nurturing practices, such as teaching the children to con and shoplift. The deprivations do sharpen the wits of the children—leading to the family’s collective escape to New York City, where they all make good, even the parents, who are content to live homeless. The author’s tell-it-like-it-was memoir is moving because it’s unsentimental; she neither demonizes nor idealizes her parents, and there remains an admirable libertarian quality about them, though it justifiably elicits the children’s exasperation and disgust. Walls’s journalistic bare-bones style makes for a chilling, wrenching, incredible testimony of childhood neglect.
A pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps, thoroughly American story.
