Coffee with the President,

Sometimes (often) a picture is worth a thousand words. Such is the case this week! The 145th running of the Kentucky Derby was celebrated in style in Salisbury, thanks to the efforts of Salisbury Rotary Club and the Canaan Exchange Club, graciously hosted at Noble Horizons. Food and dessert tables went on almost as far as the immense raffle set up, and the Mint Juleps were pouring freely throughout the festively decorated Cobble Community Room! A grand time was had by all! Thanks to all who put in tireless volunteer hours, all to benefit local scholarship programs.

An opportunity to browse and purchase interesting and compelling art while supporting the students and the Art Department of our local regional high school.

The 14th Annual Blue & Gold at The White runs May 17 - 19 with an opening artists' reception Friday, May 17 from 5 to 7 PM with awards presented at 6 pm. The art show is the premier showcase for artwork from the students at Housatonic Valley Regional High School, and it is also a fundraiser for the art department.
Eighty-percent of the proceeds from the sale of the student's artwork goes directly back to the student artists whose work sells at the opening and the balance goes to the school's art program. This year's show covers a broad spectrum of mediums including acrylics; watercolors, graphite, pen and ink, charcoal drawings, mixed media collage, digital designs, black and white and color photography, animation, and sculptures in many mediums. 

There are several on-going programs that the Blue and Gold supports including a guest artist program, scholarships for summer art classes, and a gallery intern program where current students help curate professional art shows in the HVRHS gallery housed in the school's library media center

Additional sponsors for the Blue & Gold are John Borden, William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty; Deano's Pizza; The Sharon Woman's Club. All proceeds from the sale are used for art awards and scholarships, to underwrite the cost of field trips, and to support the new exhibition space at the high school library.

Saturday and Sunday, the Gallery will be open from 11 to 4PM.  Purchased art will be available on Sunday afternoon after 2PM.
Please help us make this event a positive experience for all the students!

🎯  Elyse Harney Real Estate Newsletter: Ephemeral magic
Vernal pools are home to innumerable species who rely upon this muddy softening of the earth each spring. Recent rainfall has extended this period of vernal magic this year. This distinctive type of wetland habitat provides a unique environment for native amphibians and insects. The cyclical pattern of seasonal water accumulation, followed by a drying period of evapotranspiration distinguishes a vernal pool from other small bodies of water. Larger predators…
