“Last semester, the Student Environmental Association (SEA) held a ‘Kicks for Kenya’ shoe drive among Pinecrest students, and we received donations totaling up to 200 pairs of gently used shoes,” said SEA President Aayushi Patel. “These shoes were collected for the benefit of impoverished children and adults in Kenya.”

The SEA has organized a series of ‘Green Nights’ to be held the first Tuesday of every month at di’lishi Frozen Yogurt Bar from 5 to 7 p.m. The purpose of these events is to collect all types of gently used pairs of shoes to support the SEA’s recycling initiatives, while also raising awareness of current environmental issues.”

Asheboro Courier Tribune’s Reader’s Choice ‘Best of Randolph County’ Awards 2012

DESSERT
Readers’ pick: di’lishi
A changing menu of 10 yogurt flavors is the start. Then throw in various types of fresh fruits and nuts. Then look toward the chocolate or syrupy walnut topping. Then think about other candy and even cereal add-ons. If you’re in the mood for it, it’s there.

PLACE AFTER A MOVIE
Readers’ pick: di’lishi
While there are seats inside, many folks like to just grab theirs and eat it out under the night sky, even if it’s just on a curb or standing with friends by the car. You’ll also find that you almost always know somebody there, so it’s as much a socializing gathering hole as dessert quencher.

Staff pick: di’lishi
Especially on nights when you can sit outside and eat a frozen, topping-covered treat under the stars. Folks, welcome to the South.

ICE CREAM
Readers’ pick: di’lishi
Technically, it’s frozen yogurt, not ice cream, but who’s quibbling (at least, customer-wise). The net effect is the same: It’s hot outside, and I want something cold. And in this case, you might want to throw a little fruit or sticky walnuts on top, too.

Staff pick: di’lishi
Don’t worry, Asheboro — our staffers don’t know that yogurt isn’t ice cream, either. Oh well, whatever works. After all, we don’t hear any complaining.
