Hats off to everyone who attended Celebrate Art! Celebrate Coffee! last Saturday in Kennedy School.
The weather might not have been the nicest, but the energy in the school was fantastic. We were so pleased to see so many people there enjoying all we had to offer — an art show and sale, free entertainment, hands-on art booths for kids and adults, free balloon sculptures, caricatures, face-painting, wood carving demos, a chance to try different musical instruments — and, of course, free coffee.
Plus, this being our 20th anniversary, we had some extra giveaways and a photo booth.
Many thanks to the many businesses and individuals who sponsored the event. It wouldn't have been possible without their support.
And last but not least, a huge thanks to all the volunteers who have worked for months to make it happen.
