Call for Empty Bowls

Hey Mitchell/ Yancey County Potters,

The Shepherd’s Staff Board would love to have more bowls from professional potters. Please consider donating!  Also, please include a business card for each donated bowl or set of bowls, because an auction will be held to give opportunity for collectors to bid on bowls made by professional potters.

Bill Sweetzer said that Shepherds Staff has already received some donated bowls, (some left-overs from Penland, 50 from the High School, and few from Avery Senior Center).  They hope to get 200 bowls.  Tickets for a bowl of soup will be purchased for $10.00 a bowl, by attenders.

I can deliver the bowls, if potters bring them to the April clay club meeting.  If prefered, potters may deliver bowls, to The Shepherd’s Staff, (ask for Martha) in the Whitson Building, on Summit St. in Spruce Pine.

The Empty Bowls Fund Raiser Event for Mitchell County Food Bank:
May 4th at 6:30 PM,
First Baptist Church Dining Hall, ph. (828)765-9411
125 Tappan St.
Spruce Pine, NC
(down the street from Burleson Plumbing, and across the street from the Dry Cleaners).

Thanks again!

Ann Thayer
