Summer is past, but the donations linger

Fillmore fans and friends!  I apologize for my posting hiatus here on the Friends of Fillmore site.  Our budget wavewatch_smbattle 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.
