A second gathering took place on February 3rd, at the Amherst Library for a creative collaboration making paper roses for installation at New Horizons Soup Kitchen in Manchester. The session was led by Joan Poltack, Diane Merrithew and Dawn Burke who provided templates, paper, glue and know-how. This activity is turning out to be a very fun morning of crafting flowers while chatting with old and new friends. The final assembly and installation at the soup kitchen are imminent and I hope to have some photographs of our creations at the soup kitchen soon.
