The Event of the Year

They call it the "Event of the Year" and I believe it. Our community comes together several times throughout the year with festivals and special events, but this event will be the one that you've got to be there.

Event: Celebrate Cullman
Date: Friday, June 10th
Time: Starts at 2PM-9PM
Where: Several areas located at most downtown merchants

This event was brought to my attention by my friends from Facebook. It is an effort to help the merchants that have been affected by the April 27th Tornado. I perused the list of many activities and live bands. You will have to check it out for yourself.

    I would love to have a pencil portrait of the kids by Pam Willingham for $15.  She is very well known in the community for her work.  She is an awesome artist!  She will be at The Shops at 3rd Street Promenade.  If you want to be there to see her talent, but don't know where the store is located.  Here's the address:

    216A 3rd Street SE
    Cullman, Alabama  35055
    (256) 338-3117

    Pam is the mother of Laura Walker, a wonderful book illustrator and art teacher.  She owns an art school called Shop Around The Corner .  I've been wanting to take a class there for some time, but never found anyone serious enough to want to go with me.  Does that make sense?  We would talk about it, saying yeah I would like to take a class, but that's all that would accumulate.  Actually, Laura was Katie's art instructor when she was in preschool at Covenant School. 

    I hope to attent this event, even if it's just for a couple of hours. 

    I'll see ya there!
