Gila Earth Day will be participating in this virtual event on Wednesday, April 22, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, from 10:00 am to noon. In an effort to provide a variety of local content for streaming live over the internet, the Planning Committee invites participants to provide digital content, whatever they wish to share with the community. Techno-savvy host(s) will introduce these pre-recorded presentations for live streaming. The material will also be available for viewing any time after the virtual event.

Cordial Rose of Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths and Glenwood Yoga is already looking forward to to the ongoing, as opposed to annual, Fun Kite Flying Picnic, so save the date 4/3/21.

"Our photographer of Fun Kite Picnics and Glenwood resident David Thornburg has made a selection of photographs of past years' kites to share with us all," Rose said. "Now we can celebrate Fun Kite Picnics and our friends near and far from our homes."


A few words from CLAY Festival Director, Lee Gruber

Dear friends of CLAY,

The Clay Festival 2020 is still scheduled for the week of July 13 -19, 2020, as a potential light at the end of the tunnel, a beacon of hope...

CLAY 2020 is potentially an opportunity to celebrate the gift of communities gathering together in support of our arts, our culture and shared histories; a gathering of collaborative groups and populations, using the connectivity of clay as a metaphor for all that binds us together. Let's look forward to that.
