The Wellness Community to offer the art of gratefulness


In the season of giving thanks, The Wellness Community will offer a creative arts workshop devoted to gratitude on Tuesday, November 18, 2009 at The Wellness Community’s Sussex facility located in the Medical Arts Building of the Beebe Health Campus on Route 24. This 2 hour workshop hosted by local photographer and stationery designer, Pamela Montague, invites participants to create their own collection of stationery to share with those in their lives who have made such a difference or simply gave them a ride to a doctor’s appointment. Giving thanks and maintaining life lines is very important and sometimes overlooked in today’s society.

This workshop will enable the exploration of gratitude, encourage acknowledgement of the special people in your life, inspire the creation of a simplistic gesture with a Sand Script image created by Pamela Montague, while constructing a set of handmade cards.

Montague’s Sand Script images are well-known locally. She celebrated her 10th year of personalized Sand Scripts last year. Her images offer inspiring, humorous and peaceful words and messages written in the sand. Pamela is also the owner and designer for her small business, A Sandy Soiree. This business grew from days when she owned a gallery, Lightspun Gallery, in downtown Rehoboth Beach.

Workshop participants are not required to bring anything except a gracious heart; all supplies will be provided. This program is open to people affected by cancer and their caregivers. There is no charge for the program, but you must reserve your spot by calling 645-9150.

The Wellness Community -Delaware is part of an international nonprofit organization that provides support, education and hope to people with cancer and their loved ones. Through participation in professionally led support groups, educational workshops and mind/body classes, people affected by cancer learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce isolation and restore hope regardless of the stage of disease. At The Wellness Community -Delaware, all programs are free of charge. More information about The Wellness Community is available on their website at
