Sunday the Morgan Family hosted their Annual Santa’s Workshop with a gift: Family Appreciation Day.
Via Facebook, Mike says: We had a great time at today's Santa's Workshop at the Morgan Arts Centre.
Morgan Arts Centre was transformed into a dozen stations where makers of all ages hand-painted traditional wooden ornaments, 3-D snowy winter scenes, cozy gingerbread-style houses and custom gift boxes plus more. Holiday headwear, snacks and refreshments, all led up to another surprise…
Wrapping up around 4 p.m., Mike and Di Morgan thanked everyone who showed up for taking part, especially for all they (and the community) had done to help their family since August.
Monday and Tuesday offer another chance to experience making and crafting at Santa’s Workshop 3-5 p.m. for the after-school crowd. Details at www.morganartscentre.com.
Seen elsewhere around Toledo:
Kudos to The Cowlitz Tribe: Featured at a state conference of conservationists for their Otter Creek Project.
Update: As the Cowlitz Tribe stood in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux against NDAPL crossing their lands, this eleventh hour turnaround is an answer to prayers far and wide. More on BBC, CNN, USAToday.
Congrats to Tonya Lovell, one of twelve recipients of WSECU’s $100 Giving Tuesday awards as featured in The Chronicle Thursday, to be used to toward bettering the community. Atta Girl, Tonya!

Chipped a tooth Saturday, heading back to Portland’s OHSU School of Dentistry for urgent care sometime this week. Though I signed on for scheduled visits, this will be my second emergency trip.
What does this have to do with Toledo? Well, your humble scribe is offering a seat-on-the-bus to anyone* interested in joining me for quality care at reduced prices - on my schedule. About a dozen trips will be slated in all.
Should know by 10 a.m. what my appointment will be this week. Contact me if interested.
Update: "Bus" leaves about noon Tuesday, 1:30 p.m. appointment may last until 5 p.m. Contact OHSU soonest if you too have a dental emergency, as these spots fill fast.
*Sorry, no smokers/heavy scents. Breathing issues, you know.
OK, one more time...the link for Healthy Peanut Butter Cups recipe.
