Dear friends and art lovers,

My open house this weekend will also be a fundraiser for the Y's Owl Maclure Cooperative Centre, which provides services and day support for adults with disabilities. Y's Owl does wonderful work — my son acquired many of the skills that have earned him employment through their program. Hugh Nelson, Executive Director of Y's Owl, will be in attendance. I aim to raise $1000 for the Y's Owl Christmas party by donating a percentage of my sales from the weekend and through contributions from my guests.

Bring a friend and both will receive $25 or 5% off any purchase (whichever is greater).

Come Saturday Dec 4 for the viewing and sale, 11:00am —4:00pm. Come Sunday Dec 5, 11:00am — 4:00pm and also enjoy hor d’oevres by chef Mary Beth Howett and a famous Glebe Meat Market smoked turkey. RSVPs requested for Sunday: call (613) 261-1351 or e-mail valorie@valoriepreston.com.

Please drop by either day and help make the party that much better!

fondly,
Valorie
