January Artist of the Month: Anne
Anne Anderson, a new member of Lake Edge, will display her watercolors for the month of January. Anne is an artist who expresses her feelings in free-flowing watercolors. She is a former elementary art teacher who still loves the joy and excitement that watercolor allows the student and artist! “Painting becomes play, I never know what is coming next. I love bright colors and the natural flow that watercolor allows.” Anne is available for private beginning watercolor lessons.
Join Anne for a reception to talk about her artwork on Sunday, January 21 at 9:30 am in the Library.

Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive
January 26-28, 2018
A $13 Gift Buys a Blanket!
Click to Donate
St. Vincent de Paul annually provides hundreds of needy people in Madison and its surrounding communities with good-quality recycled and new bedding. On January’s last full weekend, donors can bring blankets and other bedding – new or clean and gently used – to one of Dane County’s three Shopko stores, one of the participating churches, or one of the seven St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores in Madison, Stoughton, Sun Prairie, Verona and Waunakee. Dane County Shopko stores are making new, good-quality blankets available for purchase and donation at an attractive price. Q-106 will be broadcasting live on the Friday of the drive from the Shopko location at 7401 Mineral Point Road in Madison. All the bedding we collect or purchase during this drive will be given away during the year to those in need who come to our Center for Vincentian Charity seeking assistance (2033 Fish Hatchery Road in Madison).
Another way to help is to contribute financially toward the purchase of additional bedding (new sheets, pillows and mattress covers) to meet the requests we receive. Last year we raised several thousand dollars from people in local church communities and from area businesses. Click to Donate
