MEETING of the Noon Hour Brown Bag Lunch Bunch
at Gallery 140, 140 Bridge Street
BYO lunch and beverage.  We are providing tables, chairs, ideas, enthusiasm and energy!  The topic for discussion will be WINDOW WONDERLAND (working title, not permanent).
Beginning in May (so we have some progress before tourist season) we intend to find the resources, ideas, and volunteers to jazz up the windows of a few unoccupied buildings for the summer months.
Over the next year, we would like to persuade all commercial district building owners to participate in decorating for the holidays…at least from Black Friday through New Year’s Day.
Note:  Educators who might have interested students are invited, too.
Get a few STUDENT ideas  here.
We are also looking for folks with that “decorating” gift!
We’ll save this for next year.  😉
