Arts and Crafts: Flowerpot Painting!

LOVE potnaked pots

In anticipation of the Hope Awards Dinner next month, we have been painting flowerpot centerpieces! The women at Calvary have the opportunity each spring to paint a flowerpot to express their thanks and appreciation for the gifts that sustain us throughout the year.

Many of the women who participated expressed that they hadn’t had opportunities to make art recently, and other were grateful for the calming effects of painting.

Enjoy these photos and look for the flowerpots at the Hope Awards Dinner on Tuesday May 14 (tickets are still available)!
