These cool kids and their teacher, Ms. Heath at Rawlings Elementary in Ponte Vedra created messages and now they are part of the wall. We hope all of you had fun, we will enjoy adding your colorful messages to our sculpture. Thank you!

These students and art teacher, Ms. Harris worked hard to prepare these bottles for the Wall of Light. What a super great effort from a really cool bunch of kids. We salute the teachers for coordinating these collections. You are now part of our collective voice and what a neat message we are all sending. Thank you Crystal Springs!

Ms. Dennis’ third grade class really ROCKS! Both of her classes participated in the project and were very excited to do something to show support and honor our troops. Many thanks to Rachel who enlisted this group of outstanding students. Over 150 bottles are ready to add to the wall. Thanks everyone!

JPL – Main Library downtown

Here is Beth at the loading dock of the Main library downtown. She had both empty and filled bottles, all neatly stacked in boxes. I’ve never seen such an organized delivery. Beth set up receptacles in all the conference rooms and was able to collect a bunch of bottles. This is her second delivery. I think Beth is going to be happy with the wall that she has provided materials for. In fact the wall will be right at her doorstep in Main Street Park.

Mt. Carmel Gardens Retirement Home

Thanks to Sue, we have over 250 bottles and messages from the residents of the Mt. Carmel Gardens Retirement Home. At Sue’s invitation, I met with several of the residents a few weeks ago to explain the project and they enthusiastically accepted the challenge of collecting and drying bottles, and then getting together to write messages. It was a big project and Sue reports that the residents had a lot of fun. We appreciate all of you!

 

Sue also sends this photo of the residents working on their bottles. From the left, Estelle, Sandra, Sue, and Joan. Thanks ladies!

We received a nice visit from Terry, Nancy, and Pam who were dropping off a second load of bottles. They also checked out our progress with the construction and were excited to know that the wall is becoming a reality (me too!). It’s great to have people come by the studio to see the model and all the bottles collected so far. Thanks ladies for all your efforts and we hope to see you at the opening!

This in from Rachel, our Super Messenger:

“I received these messages from a friend of mine. Thought I’d put them together and get a picture for you.  I’ll be placing these messages in empty bottles today!”

These super cool messages are from Mrs. Janzens American History 7th Grade Gifted Class at Fernandina Beach Middle School. Thanks everyone!

Here is Jim Smith, fellow artist and longtime teacher of the arts at Bolles. Jim arranged to have several clubs collaborate to collect bottles with messages. This was totally done by the students…no teacher prodding here. A great effort and welcome addition to the wall. Thanks Jim and all the students who participated.

My friend Rachel has been busy collecting from neighbors, schools, churches and her husband Brian’s 125th Fighter Wing squadron at the Jacksonville airport. We appreciate this kind of participation and your heroic service! Keep the bottles coming…please!
