…bring Farewells…as it did to the Kingston Arts and Letters Club’s last gathering at the Kingston Yacht Club on April 14th.
Mingled with a twinge of sadness (and a touch of arthritis from our ‘Shuffle of to Buffalo’ exit…you had to be there…) is a sense of accomplishment and completion.
Carolyn & Michele announced our remaining funds will be donated to the Community Foundation for Kingston and Area in the Arts and Culture category which ensures that the spirit of the Kingston Arts and Letters Club will continue in perpetuity.
Shannon Brown, Community Engagement Coordinator, and Paul Vernon, Board appointed Community Member, brought us up to date with the ‘goings on’ at the Tett Centre since it’s grand opening ‘The Whole Shebang’ at the end of January. The Tett is an alive and a ‘happening’ place, with gallery space, dance, music, fibre, ceramics, lapidary, individual studios and events galore.
Mark your calendars for a KA&L Club Members’ ‘hail & farewell’ to the club at a fun Pot Luck on June 9th at 6pm.
