Silent Auction!
Artwork, events, special items, all about to spark your interest and can be yours! Farrell Foundation’s Fall Gala “A Decade of Joy” Silent Auction will precede the event starting September 1st. This year, a Virtual Auction will be held with a treasure of items that you may bid on right from home. Instructions and details with the Silent Auction will be shared next week.
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!
Masks
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.
