Congratultions to Diane Finley and her team for masterminding another successful Home Studio Art Tour! Saturday, August 9, was a less hot day than last year. Diane included several innovations such as
- separate fees for entry and buying signs - some had saved signs from last year.
- 5 volunteers giving out maps in the Art Room - thanks to Susan Dyer, Wendy Fitzgerald, Francesca Pulis, Manoli Kelly and Arlyn Unruh.
- 3 volunteers in golf carts drove around to each open studio house to collect commissions instead of each having to bring them to the Treasurer. Thanks to Linda Planting, Diane Rubin and Kathy Warren.
Many Villagers enjoyed all the displays at each house and learned how the artists created their art works in their home studios. 12 out of the 14 had art for sale which totaled $2940.00. Arts & Crafts received a total of $509.88, almost enough to pre-pay room rental for our next big event, Holiday Faire on November 4, which will be approximately $575.
