A reader, commenting on a recent post, said "we just wait for your news and observations...and you do a wonderful job..." and then asked me to "hurry up and do the newsletter...." For those journal readers who may not be in our database, or for some other reason may not have received our recent email, I did post a newsletter recently.
Actually, the newsletter (a copy of my eulogy for Charlie Morris O'Neal) was published on May 2. However, because of numerous internet problems, I wasn't able to send our email notice out until several days ago.
You can read this newsletter here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news043005.htm.
It will be several weeks until I publish another newsletter. If you are not already on our mailing list, and would like to be, you can go to our web site (http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/). There, on the blue panel on the left you will see an "Auto Join" button. We'll be happy to add you to our database (and rest assured....we never share email addresses or other personal information).
In other news, workers will be here today to set up the Howard Street stage in our parking lot for the Ocrafolk Festival this weekend. If you are planning to be on the island be sure to take in all the music and crafts this Saturday and Sunday. It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some terrific local and regional music, storytelling, and handcrafts.
