Boonville Art Barn Open House: Supporting our local firefighters

June 30, 2008

Our Art Barn open house was a great success! Thanks, to all who attended.

As most of Mendocino County, California, continued suffering from overwhelming, out-of-control fires, we used the Art Barn opening as a gathering time and space to create wonderful, hand-made “Thank You” collage cards for our local AV volunteer firefighters who have worked tirelessly on our behalf, saving hundreds of homes in the affected areas. We also made paste paper and wonderfully healing paste paper prayer flags. Tonight we are going to the Anderson Valley Firefighter’s Appreciation Dinner to give them a check (we raised some much-needed funds) and a huge pile of gorgeous and heartfelt cards. It was very therapeutic and fun!

Many special thanks to David, Dawn, Jessica, Taunia, Paula, Lisa, Mary, Neil, Geraldine, Susan, Susan, & Susan (whew!), Ann, Maureen, Vicki, Hannah, Julia, Sara, Julie, Mitch, Dennis, Jane, Regine, and everyone else who stopped in.
