A NEW FUND RAISER TO SUPPORT THE WORK OF THE FRIENDS OF JACKSONVILLE'S HISTORIC CEMETERY
An extremely generous gesture on the part of Jacksonville resident Chris Anderson and his wife Brenda, will certainly go along way in supporting the work of our organization. Chris's primary hobby is woodworking, in particular turning wood on a lathe to make large and small bowls. His work is unplanned but focuses on bringing out the best balance of shape and colors that the wood has inside.
Using the wood from fallen trees in the cemetery grounds, Chris has started making some beautiful and artistic pieces that are available for purchase with proceeds supporting the Friends of Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery. Each piece will be dated, signed by the artist and note that the wood used came from the Jacksonville Cemetery and making them even more special. Chris also names each of his creative pieces.
The first of the bowls created by Chris from wood from the cemetery, were made available for purchase on Saturday, October 9 at a silent auction held at Belita Space in Jacksonville, Oregon. The auction was a total success with all pieces being sold. It's not too late to own one of Chris's beautiful pieces and support the FOJHC at the same time. Chris's pieces made from wood from the cemetery, as well as his other work, are available on ETSY at: www.etsy.com/shop/woodbowlsbychris
Currently there are three pieces, made from wood from the cemetery, that are available. Each one has "non-profit donation" noted on each picture and indicate where the wood came from, and how much will be donated to the FOJHC. Would certainly make a unique and special Christmas present!
We sincerely appreciate Chris for being so generous and supporting our organization.
