The week of December 14th was busy for us with our Community Service project, completing,wrapping and delivering the many beautiful 4x4 works of art to the nursing homes in our area, Miller's Merry Manor, Caring Hands and Hickory Creek. Monday, the 14th, we had a wrap party at Susan Kline's studio with wine and snacks graciously provided by Susan.
Member's creating the works are too numerous to name, but we are VERY grateful for all of their enthusiatic participation.
Members engaged in the wrapping and delivery were Susan Kline, Carol Day and friend, Bobbie Jackson, Linda Butler, Megan Montgomery, Shane Mohler, Diane Lehman, Alisha Referda and her 2 small children (shown in the photos) and me, Valerie May. And I hope I haven't forgotten anyone....
Thank you all SO MUCH!
The nursing home residents were very pleased they were remembered, and very pleased to see children visiting them and delivering gifts.
The Community Artists Co-Op hopes to repeat this event again for the Christmas of 2010!

It was so gratifying to have been there and given back to others and I know the other members that were there feel the same way...
