Art & You!

A shout out to Rachel W.G. for running a new art program at Lookout Society!  

Thank you to The Jim Green, The Jeffrey Ross & Sakura So for welcoming us into your lounges!

"Some participants were eager to try the project, others were  interested in experimenting with different mediums. Some even brought their own supplies and were excited to try out supplies provided during the session. Lots of great socialization and flow within the group." RWG


Meet Peter Pugger!

We are so very grateful to our generous donor for enabling us to purchase a much longed for and highly beneficial pug mill for our potters! Gone are the days of laborious recycling of clay buckets.

In fact, one of the potters exclaimed

"It's a thing of beauty and a joy forever". Well said!

Thank you all!
