Nov. 19, 2017 Art Show a Great Success!
Thank you to everyone who came out on such a rainy day to visit our 2017 Art Show! Everyone enjoyed seeing the artwork produced by Shelley’s students in 2017, topped off by refreshments served by Rosemary and Christmas music served up by the HUGS ukulele group. The hall was rocking with great energy and enthusiasm. A big thank you to Shelley, the artists and volunteers who made it happen. If you’ve always wanted to give art a try, watch the website for new classes in 2018.
