Save the date of February 21, 2019!

The CCAL has been a member of the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce for years.  Many of us have attended their events, and now it's our turn to host those members!

Thursday, February 21 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

It's called "BUSINESS AFTER HOURS" and has 2 purposes:  to promote the Cape Coral Art League and to provide a quality-networking environment for Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce members and their perspective members.

How can I help?

Come and help your CCAL in meeting and greeting the guests.  Choose to mentor one or 2 guest(s) and walk them around the CCAL:  Gift Shop, Gallery and Studio 1 and 2.  Answer any questions regarding Classes & Workshops!  Give them our general information flyers and cards.  Share your great stories on why you belong to the CCAL!

What else can I do?

We need your help with providing appetizers and/or desserts.  Just like how you help out at our Gallery Shows.  We deeply appreciate your support!

Door Prizes!

We are pleased to announce that we have a number of door prizes donated.  Thank you everyone! 

Music!

We thank Mike Magner for providing extraordinary music and representing the  Cape Coral Art League.

Giving back to those who give to us

The "Apple Pie Tree"

image133

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Forida has an "Apple Pie Tree" at their entrance that needed restoration.  The RMHC supported the Cape Coral Art League SUMMER ART CAMP and the CCAL gives back too!

The Cape Coral Art League thanks the RMHC for their support by giving back.  Thank you to Christine Dekkers and Hal Klingler who completed a restoration project of the "Apple Pie Tree".  Thank you for your tremendous experience in knowing the right materials to restore the tree to its former glory!


The best "Apple Pie Tree" that Christine recalls was at Frank & Sue Behan's restaurant in Glastonbury, CT.  They had a mirrored window that children couldn't see.  The tree would tell stories but also commented on the chilren in the audience, because the storyteller could see them.  Christine reflects back on the many smiles on the children's faces as the tree would comment about a bow in a child's hair and they couldn't figure out how the tree knew!


Many thanks to Laura and her staff for encouragement and excitement as the tree came to life again!
