Our fall Hearth event was on the theme “Living on the Edge.” Six local community members shared stories that ranged from raising basset hounds in the Colorado mountains to surviving cancer in a Zen monastery to living among Burmese refugees. Over a hundred and fifty souls gathered to hear these tales interspersed with live Celtic folk music by Duane Whitcomb and friends. We raised $1054 for Eyes to Burma–a local nonprofit that does beautiful work for children and families living in the Mae Sot dump in Thailand. You can read their end of year letter here. Our next event will be January 24th on the theme “Bullies” to benefit Mediation Works and their public school anti-bullying program.
