Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County seeks entries for "Salvage Art Show & Auction"

I was on the first board of directors for Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County. That was way back in the early 1990s and it's gratifying to see the gains made by the local Habitat unit. I visited the ReStore last summer looking for replacement fittings for my outdoor hoses. Since I'm not the most handy guy on the planet, I sought out a ReStore volunteer who got me the right stuff. It's good to see that the place is expanding to bring even more revenue to a great cause. And Habitat promotes recycling and reuse and the arts! You local creatives might want to enter this:
Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County will be hosting a Salvage Art Show & Auction in conjunction with Habitat’s ReStore Annex grand opening in late spring and you are invited to participate! The Salvage Art Show & Sale will focus on pieces made primarily of recycled, salvaged and found objects. If chosen to participate, artists will receive a $15 voucher to use to buy items from the ReStore. If you would like to be a part of the show or have any questions, contact Elizabeth Williams at or 307.637.8067 by Wednesday, February 29.
