Around the island
It was cool to get a chance to drop by the island for the past few days – during the visit, I ran into folks who had stories to share. Here’s a quick rundown:
Last month, Merritt & Janet Olsen came back to the island to visit, so it wasn’t too surprising to run into them at the Community Theatre – they’ve been in South Dakota since June a year ago, but you could tell they were happy to see everyone on the island…good to see them, too!
I love what former islander Paige Schmidt (FHHS ’06; UW ’10) posted the other day:
just looking at kay nielsen’s illustrations for ‘east of the sun and west of the moon.’ wow. i wouldn’t want to live in a world without artists!
I couldn’t agree more…I got the chance to help out on Tuesday with the photo exhibit in the middle of the Fairgrounds Building, and it was great to spend the day saying “Wow!”
There are pictures by folks from all the islands, of all ages (the kids are taking some great ones these days), of all sizes…you’re going to love seeing how much talent there is, all in one place. When everything was done, over 440 framed photos were hung.
So – I agree with Paige. These artists with cameras have shared magic…check it out!
Three days ago, we got a new islander, as Katie Fleming & Jesse Visciglia welcomed Jonah Patrick. He was born on Tuesday, August 13th at 3:30 pm (7 lbs. 5 oz.).
Everybody’s healthy and happy to be at home relaxing!
