Last Wednesday, the CYC hosted a grand soirée in our brand new space on Wealthy Street. Some of the most creative people in all the land were invited to dream up ways to make the new space inspiring and fun.
We were lucky to have so many creative and hard working volunteers to help make the space look warm, inviting, and fun. By the night of the party, no corner was left undecorated. Lights were strung up, tiny hot air balloons hung, and tables were covered with refashioned coffee bags, mason jars, and tea lights. We even had a talented accordionist to set the mood and inspire whimsical, innovative ideas.
Unbenounced to us, we discovered the new space is home to a mysterious, globetrotting adventurer, Captain H. Tanney. The Captain was unable to attend the party as sudden business demanded attention in the south of Greenland. We received a note apologizing for the absence and encouraging the kids to keep writing, but are still unclear as to who this Captain is and what his or her mission is… regardless of the absence, the party went off without a hitch.
Thanks to everyone who came out, and for all of the creative ideas we collected during the party. We couldn’t have done it without Paul Lee of The Winchester’s generous donation of drinks, Drew Melton’s beautiful stamp design, City Antiques for providing unique party decor, Terry Johnston’s photography from stellafly, and last but especially not least, our party planning volunteers David Wenzel, Dustin Tinney, Laura Naughton, and Jonathan Williams.
