Hello friends and neighbors! Oh, how we’ve missed seeing your smiling faces… We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and well and that you're able to find some peace during this mandated break from life as we know it.
Since we cannot currently congregate in our beloved village, we thought we would bring the village to you! Our extremely talented and creative Jessica Crum designed a special coloring book titled “It Takes A Village”. This book features activity pages and original illustrations of some of the small businesses and public services in our beloved community that we feel are recognizable to our children but hold a special place in all of our hearts.
Many of our patrons have thoughtfully asked how they can help support our small business during this uncertain time. We are giving those interested the opportunity to make a small donation or “pay what you want” in exchange for the digital download. Our sincere hope is that this coloring book will provide a way for our neighbors to stay connected with the community while promoting some of our local businesses in a fun, creative way.
We would love to see your artwork and hope that you’ll use the hashtag #colorthevillage to share your finished products on social media so we can all enjoy and vicariously visit some of our favorite spots. Maybe we’ll even turn it into a contest! When doors open again, we know your artwork will remind us of the amazing support received from our community during this unprecedented time in history.
We truly believe that it takes a village and are so honored to be part of the Berwyn one!
