Garibaldi Days and way on back....

We just discovered there's a Facebook page devoted to the history of Garibaldi and surrounding towns; Bay City, Rockaway, Wheeler, and Nehalem.  There are good quality historical photos of the area.  It's definitely worth a visit:   Garibaldi Oregon Memories.  Thanks to Bill Hayden for letting us know this terrific page is out there!

The Grub Club Does the Garibaldi Museum

On Monday, the Garibaldi Grub Club was invited to the Garibaldi Museum for a free museum day. Fourteen children of all ages (2 1/2 to 17) strolled, rode bikes, and scooters to the museum after indulging in a hearty lunch. It was a perfect sunny day for the after lunch exercise. Many had not been to the museum before. It was a terrific opportunity for them to learn some of their local history, and appreciate the maritime history of the Pacific Northwest. 

They built buckets, assembled boats, dressed up in colonial costumes, as well as taking turns ringing our notably loud  - CLAAAANNGGGG!!! ) )  )  )  )   )   )  bell in the Garibaldi Room.   
S'okay...that's what it's there for!

Artist Patsy Chapin for the month of July

Patsy is a warm and lively watercolor artist who has filled our Community Room with an abundance of her watercolors, scratchboard pieces, and an occasional oil painting.  Below are just a few examples of her work.

This blog keeper wants to apologize for the quality of the photos because they don't do her work justice.  I'll post new photos next chance I have to stop by the museum.

Patsy prices her work for everyday people who think they can't afford to buy original art.  Her work is very, very reasonably priced.  Come in and tempt yourself to take home some eye candy.  Blog keeper succumbed!

Sorry folks...this little beauty is SOLD!
