Thanks for including the Record-Bee in with your mailings. Could we request you include a message in forthcoming issues for people to submit any events they'd like to get publicity on to this email address ( desk@record-bee.com )? We already get notice of many of the things you list, but not nearly all and we're happy to include as much as we can.

Thanks for your time.

If you have the time between 1-2pm please be sure to listen to "Big Art" radio show to get information about what's happening with art in our county. Even, better yet, call in to let Lake County radio listeners hear you talk about your own artist event, gallery/art related venue event, art classes or any other topic relating to art in our county.


This is a free opportunity for you to be able to get the word out to, even, more people in our county about all the art happenings in our county.

Again, this show is on KPFZ 88.1 FM or "streaming live" on www.kpfz.org
and the number to call is 263-3435.

My son, Diego, and I can, even, two calls at one time so try to make this a priority if you really want to get your message out to more people.

This show is on the last Tuesday of each month so take advantage of this opportunity for yourself, your business or your organization. Even if your event already happened you can call in and give it a good review or talk about what you want to do in the future to make it even better.

Let's have the phones "ringing off of the hook," so to speak, to show that art is "alive and well" in our County! This kind of response keeps up the momentum and keeps local artists going. We could even talk about how our governor just voted in an increase of now over $7 million allocated towards the arts in California. Let's get some of our local grant writers busy to get some of that money for our county! Do you want to talk about it?!! How do we get some of that money? Go on California's Art Council's website to learn more.

Again, the show is from 1-2pm tomorrow, Tuesday July 30th for one hour each month. Please try to take the time for art sake. 707 263-3435

Sincerely and Thank you,
