Join us as we celebrate the beginning of summer with another fun installment of the Palmer Art Walk! For the month of May, the Palmer Art Walk will be helping folks get ready for the summer growing season by providing Walkers with their very own herb garden kit! Each Art Walk stop will be giving away components that, when combined, will provide everything you need to grow your own herb garden. In addition to the herb garden kits, one lucky Walker will win a special gardener's green thumb gift basket!

FIRESIDE BOOKS: Our favorite local vendor of the written word has a special treat for its visitors. This month, Fireside will be hosting a double book signing at 11:00AM and 2:00PM. First, at 11:00AM, visitors can meet Jim Misko, author of the newly published book, "The Path of the Wind."
Miles Foster is a newly minted teacher who dreams of getting a teaching job in the highly respected and financially stable Portland, Oregon school system where everything is available, and where he and his wife call home. But the only opening for his talents is in a remote lumber mill town in central Oregon, two hundred miles away. It is a poor school with forty students, and is controlled by a jealous superintendent and school board who tolerate no thinking outside the box and who conspire to destroy his teaching career.
Miles must find a way to educate students who have been passed along regardless of what they learned, and defeat the damaging control of the school board and superintendent without losing his marriage or his job, or both.
In the afternoon, at 2:00PM, visitors can meet Shelly Jacobs, the author of "A Mother's Meditations: Teachings of the Heart." Just in time for Mother's Day!
COVER UPS: This favorite upcycled furniture store and Alaska Chicks retail location will be conducting product demonstrations using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. DIY professional, Kathy Stone, will also be available to provide suggestions and answer any questions visitors may have about tackling their own home DIY projects.
