Here we are, hanging out in the Bird. (BTW – we have had a lot of great comments about this photo – it was taken by our friend and photographer, Robin May.)
You can see it in our eyes – we are dreaming up more fun cultural and artistic activities and fun ways for folks to help us keep it all going. In case you don’t know the story, The Whirlybird building was magically and generously returned to us by a friend on a hand-shake, but, of course, as it turned out, we needed some help to finally get the debt on the building paid off. Borrowing was not a good solution to this situation.
And, now, thanks to the Whirlybird Society and Fan Club, WE DID IT! The debt has been paid! Now, on to more fun!
Have you heard our story? Well, you can read all about it here. . . and join us on our artistic and cultural adventures. The way it always works for us down here in South Louisiana, is through friendships. In fact, The Whirlybird Society and Fan Club idea first came from friends. The idea, that is, to start a Fan Club. And to have membership that was, first, specifically geared to clear the debt we owned to a friend who literally brought the whole building back to us – dance floor, stage, bar, everything intact, which, of course, then made it possible to continue the history of amazing Whirlybird activities.
The idea of The Whirlybird Society and Fan Club was to have a membership for on-going support of our (Christy’s and my) creative and artistic projects (which folks seem to like). And, we have often needed help with maintenance efforts with The Whirlybird building.
And, now, The Whirlybird Society and Fan Club membership will continue to support and build an Artist Fund, with the goal of ensuring a generous minimum amount of money for all collaborating artists.
