Welcome back, Community Arts Day!

9 Apr

I always love walking through the halls of Webster Schroeder High School at Community Arts Day. I see dozens of my friends from the community, get some great blog ideas and admire hundreds of incredible pieces of art made by our schoolchildren.

But Saturday, as I made my way ’round the displays, I realized this Community Arts Day was one like no other. This Community Arts Day was nothing less than Webster’s coming-out party.

Our town, like everywhere else in the world, has been in a cocoon much of the last two years. Clubs couldn’t hold meetings, dance and martial arts studios had to suspend their classes. Our schools were even shuttered for several months. And we certainly couldn’t hold community celebrations like this one.

But yesterday I saw the Webster community coming back to life, boasting to all in attendance about the events, organizations, people and talent that make our town a great place to live. Community groups hosted informational displays, dance schools were back on stage, musical soloists and ensembles entertained all day. And I reconnected with friends and colleagues, some whom I haven’t seen in years.

As usual, I tried to capture the festivities by taking a lot of photos. I couldn’t get everything (there was SO much going on at once!) but I tried to get as much as I could.

And may I be the first to say, WELCOME BACK!
