Thank you to Loretta Sword for covering our story and helping make our next journey a success. We’re in the process of taking an 100 year old house and turning it into a Music & Art Center for the kids, big and small!
It’s been 18 months of hard work, dedication, perseverance and stretching dollars. The original Li’l Red House is now 95% completed and ready to greet the kids and show them life can be about fun and creativity too. We’re always looking for volunteers, music, art, clerical and labor. Be part of a team who believes the programs schools are cutting are perhaps the most important. Thank you to everyone and every company who helped make this first house possible.
Please come visit us and have a tour!

The houses will not only have creative venues but will encourage healthy eating and cooking classes. Our garden will be used to help educated the neighbors and anyone who wishes to learn about food, enjoy fresh produce and educate kids on the benefit of eating healthy. We have chefs willing to teach once we’re ready.
We finished all the things we wanted to get done on the house last night. This morning we had breakfast & meeting to set out our priorities/tasks for the day and everything went beautifully. What a great event it was tonight. The talent we witnessed was fantastic. It’s so great to see the kids (little & big) enjoying art and music. Three little kids in particular were busy painting some wonderful art with Dad looking on.
We were all blown away when Cage (next door) rapped about his Gramma passing away recently. Then his sister Chasey did a couple numbers…followed by our own Alais Clay who performed her newest number (written only a few days before) and outstanding as usual. Next up was Tammy with some poetry, then Samantha assisted by Guitarist from their PCC (Pueblo Community College). Next up was Cliff, who had seen the ad in the Chieftain newspaper last Wed. and, who came to play violin, then guitar and another instrument called a Didgeridoo, a long horn type thingy and very cool. Alas our Stephanie (Alais Clay) belted out another during the night but with her sore throat was really struggling but still awesome. (more…)
