Workshop in Gloucester by Ekaterina Smirnova


Hi Joey,

Long time no see…

I hope all is going well. By looking at your posts on GMGloucester I could say that you continue to keep everybody updated on local events.

I have a small story for you too.

I will be doing a painting workshop in the beginning on September.

Would you help me to tell everybody about it? I would really appreciate your help.

The people who have been advancing it all these years need a break – some new blood needs to step up and take it to the next level. Come on Lanesville, you can’t lose this special asset of your community.
