Empty Bowls Ice Cream Social

Dates: August 20, 2017
Sunday, August 20, the Arts Center will once again hold an open house at its lakeside facility, Sunny Point. The August event will be an “empty bowls” ice cream social. Participants will have the opportunity to buy a handcrafted bowl made by one of our great artists – including Monica Sommerville, Alex Hileman, Faith Benedict, Barb and Eric Havill, Kim Cutler and the Rochester Folk Art Guild, as well as bowls created by students at Dundee High School and students using the new Annie’s Boathouse Pottery this summer – for $25. Bowls will then be filled with ice cream and toppings will be available as well. Cones will be available for kids and entertainment will be provided. Come by boat, bike, car or foot between 1 and 4 pm (bowls will be sold on a first come, first choice basis so plan to come early to get the best choice!) and help enjoy and support Sunny Point.
