the arbor newsletter may 2013

The spring season is full of changes.  The temperatures are rising and the flowers we saw wilt away last winter are slowly beginning to sprout green buds.  Aside from the weather’s transformations that occur during the spring season, we at The Arbor are transforming, too.  Our first month of new ownership was an exciting one!  We’ve been busy familiarizing ourselves with the ins and outs of The Arbor’s daily operation, meeting with local vendor representatives, placing new orders, and researching new lines to carry.  In the midst of this whirlwind, things got a little more exciting when Katie and Zane welcomed their son, Leo, almost four weeks earlier than expected! Leo, 6 sweet pounds of perfection, is doing wonderfully!


This month we are honored to be hosting local artist Renee Hartig’s beautifully painted door, part of the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery’s 6th Door Show.  We encourage you to venture downtown and take part in this art walk.  It truly is spectacular!  Thank you to those who joined us for First Wednesday last week.  The Arbor was filled with warm sunshine, friends, and great wine.  Even Leo made an appearance!


We’d love for you to join us for our special Open House Event on Friday, May 31st, from 5 to 7 pm.  It will be a lovely evening with live music, food, and drinks.  We look forward to visiting with familiar friends and meeting new ones as well!
Both Katie and I are looking forward to celebrating our first Mother’s Day this month.   We hope that you mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts (mothers of all types!) are showered with love and appreciation this Sunday!
Happy Spring!
Ashley, Katie, Kelly, Marilyn, Kathy, and Jenny
