It is a privilege to be part of such an amazing group of people as I share my photography with the Woodbury Community Foundation (WCF). WCF is preparing to celebrate the 10th anniversary with a Gala event on May 17th, 2014. Mark your calendar as you don’t want to miss this interactive celebration of the history of Woodbury.
I have been fascinated with the number of residents that have grown up here and are with us to share how much Woodbury, MN has changed over the last century! Stories of a generous community helping one another are truly inspiring! Many of these stories come from Woodbury native, Inez Oehlke who raised her family on one of the still-standing farms. If you haven’t heard Inez Oehlke speak, you are in for a treat! She is the keynote speaker of the Gala. Inez is not only captivating in her story-telling but is poetic in the way she paints the most vivid changes to our city.
The Gala is not a typical fundraiser, but one that will include a live ‘walk through history’ as our own Woodbury Community Theater brings our town to life through acting and song. Tickets sold will include a commemorative coffee table book with current and historical photographs and facts of Woodbury. Attendees will enjoy dinner at the Prom Center, presentations from Inez Oehlke along with past and present City Mayors.
This event will be a celebration of the wonderful community of Woodbury. For more information or to purchase tickets for this event visit: http://www.woodburyfoundation.org
