Arts & Crafts Weekend 2003 - In Review
By Alana Coons, Events & Education Coordinator
Since its founding in 1998, this event has been our largest fundraiser and this year it proved to be that and much more. We expanded the entire format with a larger exhibition show, private parties, a silent auction and we included trolley service for the Historic Home Tour. The response was in direct correlation with our efforts. We had our largest crowds ever, over 100 new memberships, and the silent auction netted close to $3,000. Thank you bidders and donors!

The homeowners who so generously gave us the opportunity to send almost 1000 people through their beautifully restored homes are the heroes of the weekend. Thank you to all the homeowners: Anne and Adrien Fernandes; Pat Kelly; Deirdre Lee; Vince Petronzio; John and Debbie Stall; Calvin Woo and Sue Merritt.
