Wimberley Community Center
I thought about a party at my place, but it's an Airstream Trailer. That's a pretty tiny party for such a grand occasion. So it's potluck luncheon for the whole town instead, and an awesome do-gooder opportunity. I don't need presents. I live in a tiny space. In fact, I thought, I've got 8 chairs cluttering up the storage room that I might never use again, and one of the most fun things I've done for charity so far was paint a chair for the Arts from the Heart Chair Auction. (I did a high chair in Jackson Pollack style splashes and dribbles.)
That's where it started. My 8 chairs have gone out into the world, and are coming back transformed into one-of-a-kind treasures. And on my birthday we'll auction them off. We'll have a light lunch and a piece of birthday cake before the holiday, and it'll be fun and sweet. The idea got bigger fast. Regulars in the community class include volunteers for other great places in town, and a big rain on Halloween wiped out a local farm I care about. There is always something to do. Why not have a party around it?
