An artful fundraiser

It was Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, but The Commons was alive with vibrant color and the buzz of folks enjoying the start of the holiday season. It was our second benefit art auction, and interest was high in the 27 works created by members of the East Branch Delaware River Plein Air Painters. HSM and the artists shared the proceeds, enough to allow us to erect another historic marker in Middletown in 2011. A big thank you to the talented and generous artists, led by Alix Hallman Travis: Robert Axelrod, Sumiko Patrone, Linda Webb Varian, Margaret Leveson, Patrice Lorenz, Rosamond Welchman, Carol Steene, Nancy McShane and Oneida Hammond. We also extend appreciation to Frank and Helene Manzo for contributing the space; Dale Trethaway for the wine; Marc Levenshus and the Portfolio Café for the sweets and the posters; the Cheese  Barrel for the cheese platter; Trish Adams for flyer design; and to HSM board members who so ably orchestrated this event! Happy holidays to one and all!
