Poppies in the Rain,
23 Nov. 2019, 10 A.M.-1 P.M.
This November, we are painting “Poppies in the Rain” in honor of Veteran’s Day. 10% of each sign-up will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
During WWI, brigade surgeon Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was struck by the red poppies growing out of a desolate earth during a bleak and harsh war and wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields.” McCrae’s image of red poppy made the poppy a symbol of the blood shed during battle.
We will paint the red poppies in remembrance of those who gave their lives for our freedom and in honor of those who continue to dedicate their lives to protect that freedom.
Brunch items, coffee, tea, and mimosas will be available as you paint.
