Thank you to everyone who made it out to our winter festival! Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers and the Groveland activities committees! I’m personally grateful to those of you who made soup! Yum! The Bagnall Chorus was wonderful. Ms. Medley really knows how to get those kiddos to harmonize. A special thanks to our face painter, Valerie, she had some really great designs. Officer Nichols from Amesbury Police Department and his pup Achilles were a huge hit. Cheryl, a local story teller from All About Fun, had some really cute engaging tales.

It may have passed more for spring then winter but we weren’t complaining. Stay tuned for our upcoming flea market!

Belated but no less excited to share, that we had a phenomenal turnout for our annual wine and art event. 36 artists participated! Most came to mingle too! People filled every room and hall. Music played. Wine flowed. Art was everywhere.
Decorations for our 10th anniversary? Bubbly of course!
Thanks to Justin Gordon’s donation, we raffled this unique wood carving!
Fellow artist Derrick Feole played a saxophone (thank you for donating your time!!!). We had members of the Veasey (yes, our namesake) family swing by, including Mr Veasey’s grandson, Mr Veasey! We had the most amazing stuffed mushrooms. Champagne marshmallows! So many delicious dishes donated from generous local businesses like Your Place and Ours, The Tea Garden and The Groveland Diner. We had an incredible raffle which included donated art! The best bartender in town, Pam Johnson, owner of Traveling bartenders! We had had smiling folks admiring and buying art. I know my art sales table was busy all night too! I couldn’t resist buying a couple pieces myself…

Thank you to the generous donors! Thank you to the talented artists! Thank you to our wonderful guests! And thank you to the volunteers, without them, Wine and Art couldn’t happen. The list is long and we so appreciate everyone who played a role in bringing this event to life. For those of you who missed, don’t make that mistake again in 2016!
Until next year! -Vanessa
