Kicking off the New Year at the Kaleidoscope Opening Party

 

There was no sign of post-holiday blues at the opening reception for Kaleidoscope, Martin Artisan Guild’s first exhibit of the year.

A celebratory crowd was on hand at the Palm Room Art Gallery and Artisans Boutique, located at 3746 SE Ocean Boulevard in Harbour Bay Plaza in Stuart.

Music was provided by Chris King and the Guild’s sensational gourmet spread and adult beverages did not disappoint.

Congratulations to Jacquelyn Roesch-Sanchez, Patricia Pasbrig, and Barbara Bucci, for earning first, second, and third places respectively in the evening’s awards ceremony. Each exhibit has an anonymous art professional judge the show and pick the three top artworks for recognition. The exhibit continues until March 4. The Palm Room Gallery is open Tuesdays-Saturdays from Noon - 6 p.m.

New outdoor classroom opens at House of Hope’s Golden Gate Center for Enrichment in Stuart

New outdoor classroom opens at House of Hope’s

Golden Gate Center for Enrichment in Stuart

The outdoor classroom at House of Hope’s Golden Gate Center for Enrichment is a welcoming space for a variety of activities. The idea for an outdoor classroom was inspired by the need during Covid to find well-ventilated spaces for group activities.

An outdoor classroom tucked into a wooded area on Dixie Highway in Stuart is the newest addition to House of Hope’s Golden Gate Center for Enrichment.

“The interest in using outdoor spaces for programming during Covid inspired this permanent outdoor classroom,” according to House of Hope CEO Rob Ranieri. “It expands our useful space for teaching and learning, makes great use of the park-like garden that we’ve created on the campus, and helps with revitalization efforts for this part of our community.”

The outdoor classroom, a covered space that can be used year-round, was funded by a grant from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. It complements the classroom spaces inside the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment. “Our programs have proved so popular,” Ranieri said, “that we welcome this additional space.”

House of Hope’s Centers for Enrichment at both Golden Gate in Stuart and in Jensen Beach offer a full calendar of no-cost classes and workshops focusing on education, career readiness, health and nutrition, and arts and culture. Many of these programs are facilitated by partner agencies that are subject matter experts. Others are facilitated by House of Hope staff and volunteers. Services vary at each site and change to reflect the needs of the community. The Enrichment Centers also feature computer labs with access to free printing.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome the new learning environment will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 2 p.m. at the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment, 3223 SE Dixie Highway, Stuart, FL. 34997. For more information about House of Hope and its Centers for Enrichment, visit www.hohmartin.org.

Lois McGuire joins EFMC board

Lois McGuire joins EFMC board

 

Lois McGuire

Lois McGuire, who has enjoyed an esteemed career in the academic world, has joined the board of the Education Foundation of Martin County (EFMC).

The news was shared by Lisa Rhodes, EFMC Executive Director, who has worked closely with McGuire on several EFMC projects.  “Lois has been a life-long education advocate and longtime supporter of the EFMC.  We are fortunate to now have Lois lend her leadership and expertise as a board member.”

McGuire and her husband moved to Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club from Bayonne, N.J. in 2002. Prior to that she spent decades teaching in New Jersey schools, beginning her career as a fourth and fifth grade teacher, rising to Superintendent of Schools in Kinnelon, the job from which she retired.

She received several awards for excellence in teaching from the State of New Jersey. A highlight of McGuire’s career came when she was asked to join then-New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean at a Governor’s Conference in Cincinnati to discuss at-risk youth.

McGuire earned a Doctorate in Education from Rutgers University and has been a consultant to the U.S. Department of Education and the New Jersey Department of Education.

A born teacher through and through, McGuire created an innovative English as Second Language program when she first moved to Harbour Ridge. Many employees in the community’s landscape, food services and maintenance departments were Spanish-speaking only, making it difficult for them to communicate with residents.

McGuire organized the scores of retired teachers who lived in Harbour Ridge to teach English in a five-day a week program that continued for four-plus years. The attendees earned GEDs, became US citizens and prospered in their jobs. The program was retired when it was no longer needed.

McGuire has also been a member of the Library Foundation of Martin County.

She currently teaches Mah Jongg at Harbour Ridge, where 135 residents take part in a high-energy weekly game. It has become the basis of a successful fundraiser for the Education Foundation of Martin County.  This year’s EFMC Charity Mah Jongg Tournament at Harbour Ridge is scheduled for March 3, 2023.

McGuire is the successful author of several books: Don't Be That KID! at Home, Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide to help educators and parents guide their children through the maze of building essential positive character traits.

McGuire says she always wanted to be a teacher. “I love to be engaged in something that helps children. It has been my whole life and it will never stop.  I am honored to be a part of a group of dedicated community members who want to assist teachers to expand the educational possibilities for children in Martin County.”

Family promise bed race puts the FUN in fundraisers

Family promise bed race puts the FUN in fundraisers

Big Bed Wolf Team in 2021 Bed Race

The mission of Family Promise of Martin County is a serious one. The non-profit, interfaith hospitality network provides temporary assistance, hospitality and case management to families with children who are experiencing homelessness, which currently affects an increasing number of residents in the county.

But that doesn’t mean that the nonprofit’s annual fundraiser isn’t a roll-in-the-aisles riot.

The third annual Family Promise of Martin County Bed Races is set for Saturday, October 22 at First United Methodist Church of Stuart, located at 1500 South Kanner Highway, Stuart.

The day kicks off with registration from 9-10 a.m., bed judging from 10-10:30 a.m., a fun-filled parade of beds from 10:30-10:45 a.m., race heats starting at 11 a.m. and a closing ceremony at 1:00 p.m.

Five-person teams will race against each other in home-made beds, barreling down the paved roads at First United Methodist. Each winning team will go on to the next heat, until one eventual winning bed is victorious. Participants must be 12 years or older.

There will be fun activities for the kiddos: bounce houses, food truck, pumpkin patch, as well as a silent auction for the adults

Awards for:

  • Fastest Bed (overall and by category)
  • Best Overall Theme
  • Best Construction and Design
  • People’s Choice
  • Highest Fundraising Merit Award

Have fun and get creative: build your own entry from top to bottom. Easy-to-follow directions and specs are included in the registration packet.

Team entry fee is $150, which includes an event t-shirt for each person on the team.  Additionally, it is suggested that each team member raise $150 to benefit Family Promise of Martin County.

Entry deadline is Friday, October 7 and space is limited.

Sponsorships are available at $500, $1,000, $2,500 or $5,000 levels.

More than 600 school age children in Martin County are registered as homeless or in unstable housing, such as couch surfing or staying with a family member temporarily. Guests of Family Promise of Martin County arrive after living in a car or recently evicted from their homes.

Proceeds from the Bed Race Fundraiser are used to help provide shelter and housing for children and their families in the community and also enables the nonprofit to provide counseling and education for parents to gain skills necessary to create long-term stability for their families. Additionally, funding helps supplement rent payment, or provides first/last/security fees as our guests move into housing of their own.

Family Promise is a national organization and the only shelter in Martin County that keeps families together. Dollars raised in Martin County stay in Martin County.  For more information, visit www.mcfamilypromise.org.
