“Across the Years” …Mothers Day event 2013 Virginia City

“Across the Years” …Mothers Day event 2013 Virginia City

Posted by stmarys_admin_account in Fundraiser, News, Research and Restoration, Special Event

A lovely “Across the Years” fundraising event for St Mary’s Art Center was organized by Rita Wheeler and was held in various locations across Virginia City on Sunday for Mothers Day this year … The event included a wonderful morning tea, a retro fashion show from 1900-1980, local musicians,  and concluded with a historic tour of St Mary’s and a glimpse in the galleries of the upcoming shows which were in the final phases of installation, and a visit to the Navajo weaving workshop.

All funds went to St Mary’s Art Center which is creating a fund for replacing the Center’s boiler system and renovating the upstairs terrace, which is unsafe (especially with the heavy weight of snow), and unusable.

St Mary’s Art Center would like to thank the following people who helped make the Mothers day event wonderous!
