It was wonderful to once again have the Sudden Valley Craft Fair. In spite of the rain, we had a great showing of people looking for beautiful and creative items to purchase. The atmosphere was festive and cheerful. Our booth did well, I think, selling 9 calendars and Karen McCormick, Alice Healy and Stephanie Strong selling other items. I hope you enjoy the pictures of the day.

River Rocks Fundraiser
The Valley Arts Group is offering beautiful hand painted river rocks. The rocks, displaying the beauty of Sudden Valley, were all painted by local artists. Donations for the Sudden Valley River Rocks will help fund our yearly Student Art Scholarship going to a local art student.
The river rocks are pictured from the largest rocks to the smallest. Each group is numbered, so if you find a specific rock you want just specify the group number and then the rock number.
Contact Valley Arts Group President Vicki Davis at 714-371-6358 to order your one-of-a-kind, hand painted River Rock and to make an appointment for pick up or delivery .

Remembering Christine Flacco
Last year we lost a talented and creative member of the Valley Arts Group. Golf and art were two of her passions. Friends of Christine created an auction gift basket for the women’s golf service project. The basket included art books, art supplies, free membership to the Valley Arts Group, golf rounds and other items. Funds from the silent auction go to Hospice.
We miss you Christine!
