I had a great time weekend before last when the opening for Making a Mark happened. It started off Friday withe a party for the kids in the Center complete with a miniture horse named “Spirit” who could play piano, was house trained, could count and allowed kids to decorate him with ribbons and bows for two hours. He weighed 150 lbs had tiny blue hooves. “Spirit Horses: Dreams” the quilt was shown at the entrance to the center. A DJ led the kids in “The Hokey Pokey” and other such fair!
Sunday was more grown up. 370 pieces of childrens art was hung and the kids posed for pictures in front of their work. There were refreshments and face painters and crafting going on in the corners. I bought a great picture from a young man who lost his fight with cancer. His mom donates a piece every year. I got to meet her and the dad. It is an amazing piece for a 7 year old and I recognized the piece she had donated this year as from the same artist.
