Fall already? We've been traveling quite a bit and enjoying the vacation homes of family and friends. I've got a couple of projects finishing up. I did the editing for a crew of photographers with San Joaquin Art Expressions. They are having a grand opening this Friday. I'm going to miss it, sigh. You should still go. They are a great group of artists and the project is commemorating a unique San Joaquin charity, Gospel Mission. They've been helping people get sober and off the streets for 75 years!
One of my favorite charities is the Friends of the Lodi Public Libray. All libraries in general, but these folks are dear to my heart. We're letting people know one of Lodi's best kept secrets - gently used and inexpensive books are available at the Friends of the Library bookstore. It's just off the lobby of the library. The best part? You get to feel great about buying knowing that your money is going right into programs for fellow citizens at the library.
I've created a little calendar with images from the downtown Lodi Farmers Market. 12 - 5x5 inch prints worthy of framing after the year is done. You can pick one up at Lodi Community Art Center for $30. Drop me an email if you're interested in more.
