Judy Gerber had a Wonderful Idea
“We should have the community create and paint a thousand tulips to commemorate 25 Years of Paint Ontario.”
She did just that. To highlight our new pottery program and congratulate Paint Ontario, Judy gathered a group of dedicated volunteers and all through the last year they created clay flower kits which were delivered to local schools, rest homes, community groups and anybody that showed an interest in creating a pottery tulip. Once created, her and her volunteers gathered them up and spent hours prepping and firing them in her kiln and in Bill and Ginger Webers kiln. EVERY flower had to be fired TWICE!
These are the volunteers who made kits, created flowers, delivered the flowers and prepped them for the kiln – Thank You
Carol Ann and Bruce Good, Judy Steeper, Joan Schilbe, Kerrie Strand, Sandra Brown,
Becky Cudmore, Jill St-Amour, Christina Van Bree, Lucas Dobson. Most of all, the organizer, Judy Gerber!
Each flower you see at Paint Ontario was handled with love approximately 15 times.
