Scugog Counsel for the Arts Awards Night

Two nights ago I was presented by the Scugog Counsel of the Arts with New Resident Artist Award which is given to a newcomer who has made a significant impact in the arts for the local community.  It was hectic getting there (Jude wouldn't let us get him dressed and we got lost) but luckily we were just in time to listens to writers from Whitby who read segments from their short stories and poets their verses.  I received my award during the final stage of the ceremony and was given a beautiful handmade plate along with a year membership to the Scugog Counsel of the Arts and a certificate.  Though my favorite part of the evening was having the opportunity to talk with members of the board, local artists and art enthusiasts.
