Happy 125th Birthday Creede!

June 10th marks the kick-off festivities for the week long Birthday bash for Creede! To commemorate the birthday, the Creede Arts Council has created a BIG Birthday card. Two panels, approximately four feet wide and six feet high! The students of Ms. Hess' art class have beautifully decorated one side of one panel. Tomkins Hardware is also celebrating its 125th birthday and they donated some of the materials for the card.

Two of the sides have been reserved for artists, and the fourth side has been designated to anyone who would like to sign and leave their special birthday wishes! Artists are invited to help paint with acrylic or oil on Saturday May 27, Taste of Creede weekend in the Collins Memorial Art Park next to J.Thompson Gallery.

The card can be found in Basham Park for the June 10th kick-off festivities about 11 am. Next, you will find it at Tomkins Hardware store on June 13 from 11 am to 2 pm during their 125 Celebration cookout. It will move to the Chamber/Visitor Center on June 13 at 5 pm for their ribbon cutting ceremony to open the Creede Mines diorama. Please come and add your special birthday wishes to the signature panel and look for the completed card all over town! You never know where it will appear next! Happy Birthday!
