Three or More Tuesday

Last evening we had our monthly meeting of the P. Buckley Moss Society and we really had a glorious time. We met in our church parking lot and then caravaned about 25 miles up into the mountains to Apple Ridge Farm, a wonderful camp for under priveleged kids. Our host, Mr. Lewis graciously introduced us to the facility for which we are working hard this year to provide some support. Our chapter has a project going on to raffle off a gorgeous framed print and a hand made quilt incorporating a hand painted square of one of Moss's fabulous horses. The proceeds will go to the Farm to help provide services for our area's youth next season! The "farm" hosts many wonderful amenities to provide fun and education.

Mr. Lewis is a great art collector and he had this mural donated by a prominent local artist which provides an enthralling backdrop to the science exhibits and work stations.
