Passport to France: Encinitas Friends of the Arts at Encinitas Community Center

by Patricia Frischer

Passport to France produced by the Encinitas Friends of the Artson Sat, July 23, 6:30 to 9 pm at the Encinitas Community Center ( 1140 Oakcrest Park Drive, off Balour Encinitas) $20 member, $25 public. More info: Naimeh Tahna

The week before this event took place, the terrible tragedy occurred with the loss of so many lives in Nice, France. This  included a student from a family in Del Mar, Nicolas, who was known by some of our members. This banner was created by Angela Jackson, Janine Free, Deanne Sabeck and Patricia Frischer. The audience for the event was asked to sign with in the waves to send their healing wishes to our sister community. The landscape image is part Nice and part Encinitas. Our sympathies go out to all who were affected. We feel solidarity across the seas as we know this type of event could happen any where at any time. Our positive thoughts will hopefully counter the negativity now apparent in the world.

I was very proud to produce the banners for the backdrop of the entertainment.
