A new roof on the Manley Art Center and Gallery is at least $1,000 closer to becoming a reality after Saturday’s fifth annual Art Studio Tour.

The event began with a Black Tie and Tennis Shoe reception Friday evening at the art center. Champagne, food and desserts were served prior to an auction of art created by members of the Pelican Bay Arts Association.

When an item that people wanted came up for bid, auctioneer Philip Wadsworth’s job was easy. If an item didn’t have bidder appeal, Wadsworth demonstrated his ability to beg for bids. 

Many items went for less than $20, with a couple pieces topping $100. During the auction it became a joke that people’s bid amounts were their paddle numbers. This happened several times.

The newly created Brookings-Harbor Community Garden is up and running as gardeners and volunteers began planting on June 12. 

Green thumbs of all ages, eager to roll up their sleeves and invest a little time and effort, can now look forward to being rewarded with fresh, delicious produce by summer’s end.

Those arriving to till the soil were provided with some basic gardening tips plus a few guidelines designed to make the project an educational and rewarding experience for all. 

A variety of summer squash, green beans, snap peas, herbs, even strawberries are taking root. According to project originator Roger Gilbert, while response from the community has been excellent, a few plots ranging in size from 50 to 100 square feet are still available.

Saturday’s graduation ceremony at Elmer Bankus Field was a memory in the making for the Brookings-Harbor High School class of 2011.

Not only was the event fast-paced and lively, featuring a keynote speech by Bev Rose, Kalmiopsis Elementary School physical education instructor, but there was a moment of quiet nostalgia when Rose led the class from the elementary school, across the street, to the field, just as she did when the graduates were in elementary school.

Rose led the 109 graduates along the track, on the backside of the football field, to the staging area where they lined up for the march in front of the stadium during “Pomp and Circumstance” played by the non-graduating members of the high school band.
