The Museum is excited to announce our Annual Dinner this year with guest speaker and performer Christopher Layer. As Part of the Museum’s build up to our “New Harmonies” musical history exhibit from the Smithsonian, Chris will be delivering a lecture and performance highlighting the musical history of Moab.
Chris has worked for many years to foster a love of music in the Moab community, both as Artist-in-Residence for the Moab Music Festival and as a driving force behind the Moab Community Dance Band.
The Annual Dinner will be held Wednesday January 20th, 2010 at the Grand Center starting at 5:30 pm. From 5:30 pm 6:30, we invite you to come and mingle with other Museum members while enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Dinner will be served at 6:30 with an Italian menu prepared by Pasta Jay’s restaurant. The Annual Membership Meeting will begin at 7:30 with election and re-election of board members and officers.
Standing for re-election is Mike Arehart, with Steve Hawks, Barb Webb, Suzan Martin, and Sharyl Kinnear-Ferris being slated for election to the board. After the Museum business meeting we will be treated to our guest speaker Christopher Layer as he illuminates the history of music in our community and America. We hope that you’ll join the Museum at our Annual Dinner. Please RSVP 259-7985
WabiSabi Sunday Brunch
January 10, 17, 24, 31 & February 7 & 14
Celebrate community with your friends and neighbors while enjoying a delicious Sunday brunch. There will be six Sunday brunches this winter that everyone is invited to. The brunches are part of WabiSabi’s Hands Up Program. The Hands Up program provides several free meals during the winter with the intention of bringing community members together.
“It is our belief that by inspiring individuals to come together we can create a healthy community in Moab that will outlive us all, a place we can truly call home,” said one of the many volunteers that make the brunches possible.
WabiSabi’s Hands Up program includes a Thanksgiving Dinner, a Christmas Dinner, and 6 Sunday Brunches during the winter. The program is made possible through a grant from the United Way of Southeastern Utah and donations made from area individuals and businesses. More than 100 volunteers help each year at the Hands Up meals. Volunteers prepare and serve the food, clean, decorate, wash dishes, launder table clothes and help with many other tasks.
WabiSabi is a nonprofit organization that operates two thrift shops in Moab, UT. The money raised at the stores is used to support other local nonprofit organizations and WabiSabi’s community programs. This will be WabiSabi’s fourth year hosting the popular Sunday brunches.
The Sunday brunches will take place at The Youth Garden Project, 530 South 400 East, on January 10, 17, 24, 31 and February 7, 14. The brunches will be served from 10 AM to 1 PM. The brunches are free with donations gladly accepted. For more information about the brunches or to find out how you can help, call WabiSabi at (435) 259-3313 and be sure to mention you read about it in Moab Happenings.
