Giving Thanks for Your Giving to BFS
We’re deeply grateful to the many folks
who have already donated to the BFS Annual Appeal, to bolster our nonprofit and its varied participatory arts programs
in the community. We’re over halfway to $17,000 and almost halfway to 170 donors! Huzzah!
#GivingTuesday is coming up on November 29, and we hope even more of you will tie on your flying shoes to offer your financial support in any amount that feels meaningful to you.
The BFS website has more info. To contribute right now — with credit, debit, or PayPal — click the green donation button below.
OH! The Opera House!
We’re also bursting with gratitude that our first partnership with the Rockport Opera House (OH!) and the Town of Rockport was a rousing success. Dancers of all ages filled the floor, 28 musicians joined the All Comers Band, and Wild Asparagus lit up the hall for their first dance outside their home region since 2020. Suffice it to say, spirits were high! Stay tuned for another OH! Flying Shoes! program in March.
Special thanks to the enthusiastic roster of helpers for the Nov 19 dance - before, during, and afterward!
Bill F, Christina B, Dan G, Donee W, Finn K, Gary B, Jonathan F, Keith C, Kenneth K, Klove A, Margo B, Mike D, Nate P, Rowanna H, Susan G, the 28 All Comers musicians, and everyone else who pitched in on Saturday.
