WHAT'S YOUR PICK THIS WEEKEND?
Greetings and welcome to GISH PICKS: A GUIDE TO CULTURAL ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES, a free weekly e-newsletter/blog I created as a service to the Houston community in 2003. Please enjoy!
As you may know, I love to support cultural activities – this newsletter is an example of that. I also love Houston, so back in March, I created a Facebook page, Houston Gems, to celebrate unique people, places, and things about Houston. Stop by and check out the Gems and feel free to add some of your own! This week I decided that I was tired of negativity on Facebook, so I created a public “event” called “Enjoy Life (every day).” If you’re on Facebook, you can see it here. It’s kind of a crazy idea – taking a concept (enjoying life) and turning it into an event – but it’s really caught on. Many people are not only “going to Enjoy Life” but they’re also sharing on the page HOW they enjoy life! It’s so much fun – I hope you’ll join us. And, remember, it’s not really an event – it’s a mantra!
One of the many hats I wear is as an artist. Being an artist and making art is not easy financially so I’m going to get right to the point here: I’m raising funds for an art project that will be at the Art Car Museum in the fall, so click here to learn more. No pressure here, I just wanted you to know about it in case you could help out.
Former First Lady Andrea White has a super cool online book project so read below to learn more about that. And Houston may have lost the bid for the 2012 Olympics but we have our very own Junior Olympics here right now…GO USA!
Raise your hand if you’d like a copy of THE SUMMER BOOK: A GUIDE TO HOUSTON DAY CAMPS AND CLASSES! Ok, never mind, I can’t see your hands but if you “Like” my GISH PICKS Facebook page by this Friday and you Facebook message me with your mailing address, I’ll pop one in the mail to you. Summer ain’t over yet, so I believe you’ll still find my book handy. I’ve got camps listed in the back by date so you can easily search for the ones available in August. And even if you don’t want a book – and you just want to help out – please “Like” my page. Thanks!
Have a great week and GO.FIND.FUN.
