The club is participating in an event in Millville, NJ called "Sitting
Fine in 2009".
A small team, Bill Dudley, Carol Pieretti, Janet Rich, and Bob Harris,
have taken an ordinary "old" wooden chair and transformed it
into a motorcycle representing our club...sorta :) It's really cute.
Our chair was on display for 45 days from Feb 12th to March 29th. Each
chair was in the village courtyard with a voting box. Voting will
be with nickels, dimes, quarters, or dollars. ALL THE MONEY RAISED IN
YOUR BOX GOES TO YOUR ORGANIZATION. Want to win? Organizations sent their
friends and supporters to the Village and vote for their chair. At the
end of the 35 days the Village on High gave an additional $100 to
the winning chair.
The Village on High is located in the 500 block of Millville's Glasstown
Arts District. The Chair Event had press releases in newspapers
throughout South Jersey and in Philadelphia. The 3rd Friday (www.3rdfriday.org)
is a citywide event drawing people from the surrounding areas. Business
were open late, some had live music, many were serving refreshments.
This night alone gave organizations a chance to collect votes
from the general public.
Club members visited our chair with our colors on. Our chair is
in front of Krafty Elaganza, which is owned by Carol's friend Miriam.
She puled the chair in and out of her store each day.
