Saturday was another fun and productive day of Giant Puppet making at the swing room of the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center. Don Collins and the Wenatchee High School volunteers were busy painting, sealing and attaching faux hair to the paper mache’ heads and hands. Meanwhile Bill and Cindy Rietveldt tried out the frame and superstructure of the David Thompson puppet out in the alley only to find that it bowed a bit too much. Some redesign and subsequent reworking of the structure entailed. One issue after another with the framework of the puppet, but still Bill is confident, or so he said, that it’ll all be done by parade day. All the volunteers were rewarded with all beef hot dogs, snacks and goodies before hanging it up for the day. Still a secret about the ‘mystery’ puppet character to be revealed only at the Grand Parade…be patient on that. So; don’t ask me as I will not tell.

Upon leaving I noticed some young musicians playing in Centennial Park just behind the museum. I stopped for a moment to get a few pictures and get some names and info. Playing at the benefit for the Red Cross put on by the Wenatchee High School Red Cross Club, was a young guitarist named Bryce Richardson who was playing “I’ll Follow You Into The Dark” A very nice performance. As I was leaving, a young duo made up of Bree Hoffman and Mallory Gillin were just beginning to perform. Thank you to Casie McGinness, President of the Red Cross Club for the info on the artists and activity. A great bunch of kids performing for a good cause and, another fine day for the arts in our valley.
