CARTM presented a sold out 4th Annual Trashion Show and Upcycle Party Saturday night.  There was such an extraordinary generosity of spirit from the many volunteers, organizers, models and planners that worked so hard on the Show,  to our marvelous sponsors and, most importantly,  to our wonderful community!

We all know this production could not have come off without a hitch, unless it was very well planned. For months the terrific team of Karen Reddick-Yurka, Cathy Silver, Mary Moran, Jenny Greenleaf and Wendy Ryan created an incredible community event with pizazz and grace!

The trashionistas were magnificent!  The staging spectacular and the music unique and energizing!  It is impossible to choose a favorite model. needless to say the production was filled with great examples of reuse and recycled material magically turned into amazing costumes!   Add to that our spectacular emcee Aina Tonjes, the epitome of improv!  Fun was had by all!

CARTM is so appreciative of our community’s support!  It is truly through the generosity of our community, volunteers and sponsors that we are one step closer to Zero Waste!

Many many thanks to all!
