Well, maybe it was a slow night elsewhere in Martin County, but the Empty Bowls Friday night painting party was hopping. It might have been the best fun in town! It seems many folks had such a good time at our previous painting parties, that they not only came back, but brought spouses and friends. May, Diane, Garth and Ellen worked at fever-pitch to get tables set up, bowls glazed, problems solved and questions answered but it sure was fun. And the bowls...! The bowls produced last night were bright, beautiful, fun and best of all many - a record number. Best of all, we expect to meet or exceed our goal of 250 bowls for the event.
So, painters one and all, thank you. It is truly heart-warming to see how enthusiastically the artists in Martin County (and beyond) have rallied to support the Empty Bowls Project in its efforts to feed hungry
people in our community.
Be sure to stop in at Garden of Goods where finished bowls will be on display until the event. We'll look forward to seeing you all at St. Mary's Episcopal on Sunday, February 28th from 10AM to 2PM. Be sure to get there early for the best selection of bowls, and don't forget, there will be some very special "souper" bowls selected for silent auction.
Thanks again, painters, for all your help.
