Here's What's New for April/May...
Happy Spring everyone! Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's!
WASHINGTON'S NEXT ART WALK - Friday April 26th
5 pm - 8 pm
Each month, a group of downtown Washington shops host an artist for the month and an Artist Reception the Fourth Friday evening, from 5 to 8pm. You will be provided with a program listing the participating shops and artists hosted at each of them. Come early so you can walk to each shop and enjoy the installations, artists and refreshments. The newest venue, The Mediterranean Bistro offers a 15% discount on your meal after the Art Walk when you show your program. We have expanded the Art Walk to include the Antique Shops and more. If you know someone or a group that may be interested in performing or exhibiting, please let me or Washington BID know!
This month, at Kathy's Kove & Kafe', you can enjoy the paintings of our newest artist to the Art Gallery, Loretta Lugio. Here's a sample of her work:
To view more of Loretta's works, please see her web page on www.shutterfly.com/Kathys Kove Art Gallery
Please check the Washington Art Walk Facebook page(s) to see more samples of our April Artist's works. Please note: there are 2 Facebook pages - check them both!
PLEASE NOTE: Thanks to those of you who have joined our Facebook page. It sure does make sharing information fast and easy!
If you use Facebook, PLEASE frequent and "like" our Facebook page (Kathy's Kove & Kafe')! That is where I can quickly and easily update you on what's going on at the shop in between the newsletters I send you. I show photos of interesting new items, let you know what specialty we may be serving in the tea room, what the "Free Tea Friday" flavor will be, if there's an event being planned - that sort of thing.

Have you heard about the 350 Project?
It's a movement that just may save our independent brick & mortar shops - 3 shops at a time! If shoppers put aside $50. per month and spend it among their favorite 3 independent shops they don't want to see close, it will create millions of dollars and keep the independents open. Please check it out and share the concept. Independent businesses and organizations may sign up as supporters of this project - there is no cost to you to be a supporter. www.the350project.net Thanks!
