Kristy Ellsworth’s patience paid off in her meticulous instructions

EYAA Wine Pull and Paint
Night a Success!
By Meggin Dail
Friday, March 24, 2017,
forty-one participants gathered to find their inner artist and go
home with a bottle of wine to boot!
EYAA, the Epsom Youth
Athletic Association, a non-profit organization fully supported by
volunteers and fundraising, are finding inventive ways to keep their
ball teams up and running.
So, what is a Wine Pull and Paint
Night? Invitations went out to the over-21 crowd, mostly Epsom
Central School parents, via facebook and word of mouth, for a night
of learning how to paint a pair of wine glasses and pulling a cork
with a number on it that matched a bottle of wine for each
artist to bring home. For a fee that was less than what you’d pay at
the other paint places, you brought home your masterpieces and the
wine to go in it! And it was all for a good cause. For additional
bucks participants could buy raffle tickets for a gift certificate
for 4 to a wine tasting. Lucky guest Susan Pagano-O’Sullivan won the
prize certificate donated by Flag Hill Winery.
Coordinator of the
event, Shannon Carignan, EYAA volunteer, did a beautiful job
decorating the Epsom Legion Hall on Short Falls Road. Tables were
covered in an array of Easter egg colored table cloths (plastic, for
paint spillage) and each had a dainty bouquet of carnations and
baby’s breath in a festive container in the center of the tables.
The bottles of wine were arrayed on a table to the side, all
different labels and types, with a twine and chalk tag indicating
each number that matched a number on the corks. A table with
delicious lemon mini cupcakes, cheese and crackers, fruit and
bottles of water was set up with multi-tiered trays, baskets and
brightly colored napkins, to keep the artists going when their
Speaking of artists, Kristy Ellsworth was the
resident artist of the night, patiently instructing a room of
boisterous women...and two men. That’s right, Layne Thomas, EYAA
president attended and participated in the event, as well as EYAA’s
Softball Commissioner, John Carignan, who was quoted saying, “I got
the call from Layne that he wasn’t going to be the only guy here. So
here I am.” Both gentlemen put forth some beautiful artwork.
tables had all the supplies needed for a relaxing paint evening.
Some needed to brush up (pun intended) on how to mix primary colors,
others painted outside the lines, literally and figuratively, adding
dragonflies, frogs and ladybugs to their work, but everyone had fun.
After a very successful evening, Shannon believes they will be
hosting another night like this in a few months. Other fundraisers
by EYAA to look forward to this year are a Corn Hole Tournament and
Golf Tournament as well as a Halloween Dance and Car Wash.
a non-profit organization that relies solely on volunteers.
They support such programs as T-ball, basketball, baseball, softball
and soccer for ages 4-16 depending on the sport. If you are
interested in joining the group, they meet on the fourth Wednesday
of each month at 7PM at the Epsom Library. The meetings are open to
the public and the group could use some more volunteers as there are
vacant positions on the board. You can find EYAA on facebook or
www.eyaasports.net or call
Shannon at 603-731-8730.
