Chenster Ro Invited to White House
Fellow Chenster Rosemary Geseck was invited to the White House this past Tuesday. She showed me the official invitation from Laura Bush! I hope Barney was nice to her. (Did you hear about the reporter who was bitten by Barney, their dog?) Ro was selected, through the Baum School of Art, (where she teaches) to design and paint a Christmas ball for the White House Christmas tree. The scene she painted includes landmarks from Allentown and Bethlehem. The ball represents the Lehigh Valley. I hope she has some pictures of the ball, I do not recall seeing a story in any newspaper. Please congratulate Ro when you see her at our show.
If anyone can find an online image of the ball, please let me know and I will post it at this blog.
Way to go Ro!
