AWC Quartzsite, 695 N Kofa Ave. Call 928-927-8299 March 6, 2013 PNQ thanks the community Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite (PNQ) wishes to thank the community for their amazing support for the 4th Annual Rockin��� in Quartzsite! The Rock Auction was held Saturday, March 02, 2013 at the Senior Center. The location was chosen so the artists could join the fun. Thank you to everyone who purchased the Rock Art Pieces this year. Your donations help local organizations. Thank you to all our business ���foster parents��� who sponsored the Rock Art at their locations, as well as private donors and Rock Lover Sponsors. Please see the article on the front page. A Special Thank you to Mr. Kym Scott, of Tyson Wells Showgrounds who donated the use of his warehouse for two full weeks in October while artists painted, and for allowing us to transform the warehouse into the ���Rock Motel���. Without our talented artists, there would be no Public Art Event! Thank you for your long hours and creative expressions on the unique medium of the ���agstone ���rock���! Volunteers do all the work for Rockin��� in Quartzsite. The board wishes to thank everyone who helped; whether in a big way such as hauling rocks, cooking delicious treats, or helping with cleaning ���oors, decorating, putting up ���iers, or catching typos, etc. Quartzsite volunteers are the best! A huge thank you to Council Member Mark Orgeron, Paul Carnevale and Jonathan Cushman, who picked up the Rock Art Pieces from their winter locations, and delivered to their new local homes. An exciting thing happened at the Rock Auction this year, when a business owner purchased Rock Art to be displayed in Hemet, California. What a great opportunity for Quartzsite to show off the talent we have here! The funds raised from Rockin��� in Quartzsite go directly back into the community through our volunteer equity program. Organizations bene���t from their volunteers joining together raising funds which then get distributed back into their organizations. It takes a village! Thank you all the organizations who helped create such a wonderful event for Quartzsite! Shanana Rain Golden-Bear, PNQ President
