Here is a picture from last night at the city Arts Awards - I was the winner in the Volunteerism category and received the framed certificate. These are some of the Guild members and friends there- Jeanette Jarville, Bonita Ruttkay, Penny Talbot, Marvin Skelton, Margreth Fry, Joyce Kamikura and Gail Arrison. It was a very nice evening and it looks like things are on a bit of an upswing for arts facilities in Richmond in the not-so-distant future.
