5 August

D is for.....


as in tie-dye

My brother, the one with his hands in the pot, helped to start the

Every August they put on a weekend long show

on the stage at Salem Willows in Massachusetts

They have great bands from all over the place come in

and the shows are all outside in a beautiful park on the Atlantic ocean

in beautiful and historic Salem, MA

The wonderful thing is that the shows are all free and open to the public!

The SJSF sells merchandise and there are all kinds of vendors as well.

All the money raised goes to the music education department in Salem.

Sunday evening we got together to tie-dye some SJSF t-shirts 

which will be for sale at the shows. 

It was absolutely a beautiful evening.

A sweet breeze coming off the ocean, a stunning sunset over the water,

and wonderful company!

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

What a brilliant way to give back and serve the community.

  9. Thanks for sharing! I haven't been to Salem since before I had children, which is a very long time ago! lol. I LOVE the architecture of the old homes in Salem.

    It's always good to hear stories of "giving back" within a community.

    Thanks for sharing!

  10. Ah! That kind of dying. Is that even the way you spell the other kind? I probably should know at my age! We live in an area where the 60s are alive and well, so tie-dye is a common sight! And we like that about the place. And what a great festival your brother had started and great where the mproceeds go!

  11. Giving back and having fun as well...because that sounds like grown up finger painting in a way...fun and creative and messy :)

  12. Looks like lots of fun!


  13. Whatever makes you happy ...i wish you all the fun !
