Focus: Recent Donations
Chocolate dresses and a beautiful chocolate pot. Surely a match made in heaven! Thanks to our generous supporters we recently received a lovely chocolate set from Germany, a extensive set of Havilland china, a beautiful seal coat in pristine condition and an almost new refrigerator for use during weddings. The chocolate set is being highlighted as part of the ―Dearly Beloved‖ exhibit currently on display, alongside vintage cake plates, wedding cake toppers, and brown silk wedding dresses of the late 1800‘s. A special thanks to all who support our mission through donations of time, finances, and items for display or use at Deepwood. We couldn‘t do it without you!

The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day When the sun is out and the wind is still, You‘re one month on in the middle of May. But if you so much as dare as to speak, A cloud comes over the sunlit arch, A wind comes off a frozen peak, And you‘re two months back in the middle of March
Robert Frost from Two Tramps in Mud Time (1936)

Extra Microwave? Quiltopia:

Do you have an extra microwave that you‘re not using? Deep-

wood could use a small, light-weight microwave for some quick zapping! If you can donate one, give us a call: 503-363-1825. Thanks! Deepwood will be joining Salem ‗s 3rd Annual Quiltopia with a tea & quilt

exhibit in October which raises funds for Stop Autism Now. Do you have a family quilt you would like to loan for display during the exhibit? We would love to share its history with the community and Quilts will be treated with TLC!

Letter from the Editor
The squirrels are back looking for food and purple and yellow crocuses are pushing through the soil here at Deepwood. How did they know it was Fat Tuesday and that the Mardi Gras colors are also purple, yellow and green? Spring is the season of new beginnings when we come out of hibernation, refreshed and ready to go to work. It‘s a time of excitement and change and I personally am full of hope and optimism. I hope you are too! We are planning on a full summer here at Deepwood with garden events, teas and classes. This summer, we will hold our 3rd Annual Wine Food Festival on July 11th and in keeping with Oregon‘s Big Birthday, our Garden Gala on August 1st will be Sesquicentennial Country Supper with reduced pricing so that you can enjoy this event with your family. More details to follow, just mark your calendar now and help us raise funds for the Friends in this challenging year. Bring your camera to the nature trail and come see what‘s blooming behind the greenhouse. If you haven‘t been there for awhile you might be surprised by all of new growth. Very Truly Yours, Lois Cole
