We got a real treat this open house, bluegrass singers LyndaRose and Gary sang for us, with Lynda on the double bass and Gary plucking the guitar. They sounded great, and were not used to singing to a younger crowd, they said, but everyone enjoyed their fabulous, upbeat gift of music, including gospel and Christmas carols for us to sing along to.

As well as enjoying the lively music, we discussed and shared our art while sipping warm drinks. New friendships were formed as people lingered and shared in conversation. Towards the end of the evening we got out the paints again and a few people painted while latecomers ventured in after their evening out elsewhere. It was a wonderful and inspiring time once again.
