A New Epiphany

January

Arthur Fry was a pretty normal kid. He grew up in Minnesota in the 1930's, sang in the church choir and loved spending his extra time reading. He was the kind of person who loved books too much to mark them up with ink. Instead, he scribbled notes on scraps of paper and used them to bookmark pages.

Instead, I was greeted with the unbelievable news that Art House Dallas had received non-profit status as a 501c3 public charity! I may or may not have jumped up and down by myself in my office...I was so overwhelmed with gratitude once I realized what I was holding in my hands–mainly because I wasn’t expecting to hear back from the IRS until later in 2013.
