Last year was the first year for the Crazy Cardboard Regatta here in our fair town. My son Ian and his friends entered a boat. Her name was “”Lola”. She was sort of a barge who was trying to be a tug boat and she sank as soon as they got her into the water.
It was hilarious!
About 6 months ago I got involved on the Regatta committee with the Arts Council that I am a board member into it. My team was enthusiastic about it and dove right in! The Arts Council of West Chester & Liberty is a non- profit organization, in our area to benefit and inspire our community through all the arts.
Since we are a non profit we have to get very creative with our awards. At one of our many meetings the team came up with a great community drive for donation for our Billy Bass fish awards. We asked the community to donate their tired singing Billy Bass fish to the Arts Council. I then gave out the fish to local artist and members to revive. We had 8 categories and exactly 8 artist hand paint beautiful one of a kind Billy Bass Awards for the showboat category.
It was a hit! Of course I had to paint one too…Meet my Incredible Mr. Limpet! I was honored for it be requested by the “People’s Choice” boat winning family. An inspirational story of a family with heartbreaking challenges, this family and team worked together to create the beautiful “SS Scooter”. A perfect choice voted by the people.
To be continued tomorrow….
Wishing all my mom friends moments filled with love,
laughter and sunshine!
May flowers…I do see them everywhere!
With all the rain here in SW Ohio, the flowers are thriving.
