Fillmore fans and friends! I apologize for my posting hiatus here on the Friends of Fillmore site. Our budget battle last Spring wore me out, and I’ve been rejuvenating myself for what lies ahead. And frankly, I’m not a lover of fall, cold weather, and all that entails…so I’ve been trying to bury my head in the sand (of a beach like the one to the right, maybe?). However, we know that never works, so I’m back in the saddle again!!
The image above is of a wonderful work entitled “Wave Watch” by a local artist named Alden Leonard. Alden and two fellow artists and friends of his, Lauren (Ray) Jeffords and Jared Lauer, held a sale of their works this past summer and made a almost $1,000 gift to the Friends of Fillmore. CAN YOU SAY “WOW!!”? We don’t know Alden, but he was moved by the mission of Fillmore Arts Center enough to make a very generous donation. Those who are touched by the enrichment Fillmore provides to your children each week, please consider supporting Fillmore with a financial gift just as Alden did, especially as the year ends and tax deductions are being considered.
