Sojourning Sunrisers

This week’s Sojourners included Scott Heller, who went to Syracuse for his son Michael’s 19th birthday. President Dustin was in Sacramento taking (and passing) the Real Estate Licensing Exam. Terri Clark was also in the state capital, and she was able to enjoy a nice dinner with two nephews and a niece – all delightful! to it!

The Creative Sanctuary

As noted above, our meeting took place was held at Arcata’s Creative Sanctuary – a former church that has been converted into a center for the arts. The group provided a delicious breakfast for us, and then Steve McHaney introduced co-founders Katie Belknap and Solomon Lowenstein, who told us the Sanctuary’s history..

Below is a short (and wordless) video showing a small portion of the Sanctuary:
