A Special Thank You
A special thank you to Gretty Myers and Lee Ann Eyre for their effort along with a great team of volunteers that have been working on a special gift for everyone attending the “Decade of Joy” Gala. We so appreciate all each of you did to
make this a reality!
Old T-Shirts Wanted!
Our Resident Artist Lee Ann Eyre has a special idea “up her sleeve” for an Art Experience at the Gala. She is looking for t-shirts to be used in an activity. Cotton or cotton blend t-shirts can be dropped off at the Center for Artful Living: M – F, 9 – 5. Part of the shirt’s fabric will be recycled into a community work of art by the guests!
Based on the latest COVID statistics for the State of Ohio, we are encouraging any non-vaccinated guests to wear masks as well as any others while inside the Center for Artful Living. We take precautions in maintaining the cleanliness of the building and equipment.
