Frosting for House & Sprinkles for Sweet Tooth
Senior Center Hosts Crafty and Cultural Events on Friday
October 30, 2013
The scent of cinnamon and sugar has begun to creep into the ever crisping air, signaling the coming of the holiday season. Let the magic envelope you at the first parties of the season – Wreaths & Sweets and the Insiders' Art Show & Reception at the Tallahassee Senior Center (TSC)! These fun, free events take place simultaneously on Friday, Nov. 1, from 6-8 p.m.
Wreaths & Sweets features locally made wreaths, artist-crafted decorations and bountiful baked goods from local Midtown bakeries and restaurants. This annual celebration, hosted by TSC and sponsored by Seven Hills Health & Rehab, provides a preview of the fabulous wreaths that will be for sale at TSC's biggest fundraising event of the year — Deck the Halls (happening Friday, Dec. 6).
The big plus to attending Wreaths & Sweets is the opportunity to be an early buyer or early bidder on your favorite wreath! The wreaths are made by community volunteers and include a wide variety of themes from traditional holiday splendor to sunny beach vibes.
As attendees tempt their taste buds with confectionary treats, the melodic rhythms of the Leon High School Guitar Band will float through the halls. Follow the notes and let the music sweep you away on a tour of the Senior Center. Guests are welcome to browse the ongoing TSC art exhibits that hang in the center's dining room, auditorium, hallways and elsewhere. Many works by the senior artists are for sale and make great holiday gifts.
Upstairs in the auditorium, the Insiders' Art Show & Reception celebrates various works from 63 senior artists whose work has been awarded in advanced-level and academy-level categories. It includes works in brush and ink, oil, acrylic, watercolor, pen and pastels, as well as drawings, sculpture and art quilts.
Start your holiday season on a high note at the Senior Center with these dual events on Friday, Nov. 1, and mark your calendars now for Deck the Halls on December 6. It begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $40 per person; group discounts are available. Call 891-4003 for ticket information.
