Montrose Art Walk, Golf Tournament & Scholarships

The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce will once again be hosting the Art Walk Sidewalk Sale in the 2300 and 2400 blocks of Honolulu Avenue. We have four dates on the calendar and the first one is approaching fast! The first Art Walk of the year is on Saturday, May 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you haven’t been to our previous Art Walks, you’re missing out. We have many new artists this year and many of your returning favorites who will be displaying their work. But we are looking for more. If you are an artist and want to display your work, we are looking for you! You can find everything you need at our website www.montroseartwalk.com. You can download an application and submit it. We work very hard to make sure that all the artwork we display is original to the artist and was made by hand. We have various artists representing many genres in the art world: watercolor, oils, acrylics, etchings, photography, collages and more. There will also be artists displaying jewelry, woodwork, glasswork, pottery and much more. Some will work as you watch. The weather is beautiful now and it is a perfect time to come out and stroll the streets of Montrose. The remaining Art Walk dates are on the following Saturdays: July 18, Sept. 19 and Nov. 21.

While you are in Montrose you can have lunch at one of the many restaurants in town, have an ice cream cone and browse all the wonderful shops on Honolulu Avenue. It’s a great family outing! Take some time as well to stop by and say hello to the new businesses that have just come into town. There will be music to enjoy as you walk around.

Our 19th Annual Golf Tournament will be on Thursday, May 14. Please come out and join us and play a round of golf at the Verdugo Hills Golf Course and help us raise money for scholarships for graduating seniors from Crescenta Valley and Clark Magnet high schools. We will once again be allowing disc golfers to play in the tournament. You can create your own disc golf team, join an existing team or create your own mixed team. It was a lot of fun last year.

Registration is from 10:30 a.m. to noon, putting challenge is at 11 a.m., lunch is from 11 a.m. to noon and shotgun start is at high noon. We finish the day with pizza and desserts once again provided by local restaurants in Montrose and then our scholarship and awards ceremony for our scholarship recipients. Refreshments are provided throughout the course and, as you pass the clubhouse after the first nine holes of golf, we provide more food for you to enjoy that will energize you for the final nine holes! Wow! All of this and more are included in your entry fee. You can find our scholarship application and our golf tournament application on our website at www.montrosechamber.org. We hope to see you all there. Please contact the chamber office if you need additional information or want to be a sponsor.
