May Day on the patio to benefit Bosom Buddies breast cancer support group

-A +A
Every Thursday morning in May, Wardrobe will present a series of speakers during an event called “May Days on the Patio” to benefit Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer Support group. The Wardrobe is at 660 Fifth St. in downtown Lincoln. Thursday, May 7 – “Behind the Scenes at Gladding McBean” will be presented by Lincoln Arts and Cultural Foundation Board member June Reeves. This is your opportunity to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes at Gladding McBean and what’s new about Feats of Clay, including the addition of another tour. Thursday, May 14 – “Color Your World – Color analysis for the 21st century” will be presented by Molly Seamons and Cleo Paparelli of The Personalized Touch. They will revisit color analysis for the 21st century. Color analysis was something many of us experienced 15 or more years ago. Since then, we have changed more than you might think. So, too, has the approach. This is your opportunity to re-examine your skin and hair coloring in relation to your clothing, make-up and beauty care. Thursday, May 21 – “To Dye For – Dyeing Silk Scarves” will be presented by the Wearable Arts Group from Sun City Lincoln Hills who are returning for an encore of their hands-on presentation on how to dye silk scarves. Additionally, they will demonstrate ways in which you can enhance your wardrobe with embellishments, fabric paints and other materials. Thursday, May 28 – “More than Clay and Concrete – Our Downtown Buildings” will be presented by Shirley Russell who will help us “read” our downtown buildings and discuss the history associated with them such as the Beermann Home (now Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce), the Lincoln Library now celebrating its 100th anniversary, plus many others. These presentations will be held on the patio at the back of the store. Light refreshments will be served. There is no charge to attend. However, space is limited so reservations are required. Call Wardrobe at 645-0660 to reserve your place. In addition, 10 percent of all Wardrobe’s May sales will be donated to Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer support group.
