Multiple environmentally friendly vendors were present at the Lyons Community Farm Project annual fundraiser picnic. This included Brigitte Mars, who has written multiple books on herbs. She gave the attendees an in-depth talk about herbs, as she walked them across the farm property, pointing out each herb or wildflower, and explaining their uses – both medicinal and for enjoyment in things like teas, salads, as scents and more. Attendees enjoyed their FED burritos and Juicy Dialogue’s beverages at the new redwood tables, and the smooth blues music provided by Irenic and the live band. Speeches on subjects like “bees” were appreciated. Prizes of books on gardening and sustainability, along with fresh vegetables, went to some lucky ticket holders. Contact Adrean Kirk, Executive Director, for information, how to volunteer in the garden, or to make a donation to the 501(c) 3 organization. LyonsCFP@gmail.com = see ARTICLE
4th Quarter Art Show
Lyons Arts & Humanities had their Fourth quarter Art Show at the library and town hall, opening October 12. The mural on the outside wall of Town Hall, facing Hwy 7, by Android Jones, was dedicated, and officially opened to the public. Android and his crew were present to explain the process, and to sell prints of the art work (at reasonable prices). Harp music played at the library, and donuts and apple cider from YaYa Orchards were served.
The art in town hall is by Lyons residents, and the theme was “Thanks. Giving. – ‘Tis the season.” The art exhibited at the Lyons library was done by present or former LAHC commissioners.:
Jocelyn Farrell, Anita Hill, Heather Yvonne Baltrush, Mystie Brackett, Diane Dandeneau, Tracey Barber, Patrick Cullie (who was on the 1st board back in 2015), Brianna Hoyt, Betsy Huber (AZ), Chrystal DeCoster, Melinda Wunder Duendar, Bonnie Auslander, John King, Anne O’Brien (TX), and Jul Sunshine Swann (BLZ).
The Lyons Recorder will have a separate article introducing Android Jones, and presenting the story of how the mural came about.
