It was a great evening, judging by all comments and participation of the Open Mic crowd at the Fairview Grange.
Our bellies were full of delicious soups and salad, prepared by our cooks and kitchen staff, Michelle Bradley, Karen Keltz, Eric Sappington, and myself. The Grange was abuzz as Eric kicked off Open Mic with some great guitar music, and many poets shared their writings.
A soft drizzle and then more came down from the sky, but we were having such a great time, we didn’t notice.
A young high school artist displayed her amazing watercolor paintings, and enticed me to take one home with me, a beautiful portrait of a young woman. We want to see more of her work, as well as the work of other young artists in our community.
The conversations continued, and we were blessed with the piano playing talent of Noreen Flynn, who closed the evening with her magic.
Yes, we all agreed. This needs to be a monthly event. So, count on it, folks. The first Saturday of each month. Some food, some great music and writing, and a lot of camaraderie and community fun.
And, mark your calendars for our “Reopening the Grange” event Saturday, November 17, from 1 to 3 p.m. We’ll have snacks and coffee, and will be offering tours of our refurbished grange hall. Learn what we have planned next and how the Grange can be the perfect venue for your next event. See you then, neighbor!
