A message from Erika Snow Robinson, your tireless Chalk It Up chair...

Hey Y’all!

Well we’re in the home stretch for Chalk It Up - the signs are hung or placed around area schools (mostly), the ads have appeared in papers (or will), the flyers and e-blasts have gone out (numerously), the sponsor/pre-reg squares are rolling in (keep it up!) and the forecast for rain for May 1st has now been changed to sunny (WHEW! still praying though...).

Now all I need is YOU!

Friends, family, community members, kids, adults, artists - EVERYONE - to come on over and Chalk It Up this Saturday at Redondo Union High School!

Yeah, yeah...I know - it’s Sharefest and it’s OLG’s fiesta and...and...and the list goes on and on...(and those are all great events, of course!) but please remember, this is the ONLY fundraiser we have JUST for South Bay Hands On Art - which affects all our children! So see how many things you can fit in one day and make CHALK IT UP one of them!

Can you imagine a world without art or music or creativity? NEITHER CAN I!!!! So let’s make sure that it never happens for our children...

It’s not too late to pre-pay online and OF COURSE you can show up and pay for your Chalk It Up square the day of the event!!!

Thanks to everyone for making this happen and let’s make it the best art & fun-filled Chalk It Up ever!

Questions? comments? don’t hesitate to email me: redondobeachrobinsons@verizon.net or find me at our FB Events page!

Erika Snow Robinson is back with another message of encouragement and an important link to our Facebook event page for Chalk It Up...

Hey Y’all!

Just want to thank everyone who is getting the word out there - especially those of you who are blogging, adding us to PTA Newsletters, websites, etc. Remember that you can find out the latest details about Chalk It Up, specifically, and South Bay Hands On Art, in general, here at the blog, or check out our Facebook Events page! I encourage all of you to ask your friends to join, or simply send them a Chalk It Up invitation once you’re there. Visit us - make comments - give suggestions, but mostly, let others know about us!
