Whimsy Critter Canvas Workshop

A quick peek at Terry Peattie's WHIMSY CRITTER CANVAS Workshop at The Coo. Participants were able to choose a template for an animal (or draw their own), learn Terry's secret tricks and tips, work through numerous steps and end up with a finished product they all loved!! 

This class will be offered again on Saturday afternoon, November 4, but space is limited so hurry and register if you are interested!

Celeste Beck conducted a "smashing" Smash Book Workshop this month - everyone made an armload of Halloween bag books and had an eerily fun and somewhat spooky time - bwahaha!

Fundraiser at Smoke Fried

Alachua/High Springs Relay for Life Fundraiser!! Everyone is invited to "eat and help save lives" at Smoke/Fried in High Springs on Thursday, October 26, 2017. The fundraiser will run from 11:00am - 8:00pm and Smoke/Fried will donate 10% of the proceeds from the day to the Alachua/High Springs Relay for Life event. 

Come and out and support the team of your choosing. Teams will "earn" a portion of the donation (based on participation) that will be counted as a team donation. What a wonderful way to come together as communities and help fund a cure! 

Contact Sharon Kantor at 386-454-8008 if you have any questions. If you would like to register yourself or a team, simply go to and follow the prompts. Do this by October 25 and your team will be included in the fundraiser!
