August 2012: Ode turns 2!
August 10, 2012
This August, Ode turned 2 and we celebrated in style with the Women of the Loft, 10 jazz vocalists led by the fabulous Brenda Hickson, accompanied by a jazz trio. We were serenaded, and we were painted (thanks to face-artist Catalina Lapointe). Music begot dancing and dancing begot Ode's first ever conga line. Thank you to musical guests Barbara Ween, Brenda Hickson, Carol Abbe Smith, Jill Connolly, Marion Groves, Lynne Meryl, Laura Pierce, Leslie Alexandra, Janet Ryan, Ethel Lee, Don McMahon, David Wertman, and Nancy Janoson. And a BIG THANK YOU to all our customers who have become wonderful friends over these last two years. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by beauty and heart. Ready for our Terrific Two's!
