I would just like to commend everyone who came out to the Splash of Romance dinner and auction the other night in Norwich to raise money for the new splash pad the Optimists are building for the children. They all showed great community spirit – these people will pay $500 for a pecan pie if they believe it’s a for a good cause (true story)! I’d like to thank all the people who bought raffle tickets to win my painting, Frozen Falls, and I’m so glad it went to someone who is very familiar with those particular falls. She gave it to her mother, who really wanted the painting and was disappointed when her ticket number wasn’t called. So now my painting resides in the home of the lady who made the pecan pie!
P.S. The dinner was delicious and so very nicely presented. My compliments to the chef and everyone who helped cook and serve!
