Warm, warm weather is upon us and this reminds us of a new offering this Spring, ice cream! Farley's proudly serves Three Twins organic ice cream made in nearby Petaluma. The flavors will vary but we'll likely always have the sea-salt caramel as it is so darn tasty and rightfully popular! We look forward to trying new flavors as the become available and don't forget to add a shot of espresso to any flavor!

Series "Voyages of the Heart"
The exhibition is a humanist photographic series that seeks to give a voice to those who cannot always be heard. A native Californian, Charlotte Steppling, grew fond of traveling and humanitarian service projects at a young age. Throughout her travels she has been able to photograph the raw essence of beauty, diversity, and hardship of our inter-locking world.
"In my genre of photography, I rely on my intuition and sensitivity coupled with my usage of the camera as a means to document lives, and preserve moments of intense emotion and dignity."
These photographs represented were taken during my travels throughout the Dominican Republic, Haiti, India, and Nepal.
Charlotte will be leaving to serve in the Peace Corps in Madagascar this July and hopes to continue to take photographs during her travels.

Community Art at the Tenderloin Boys & Girls Club - Held Over Another Month!
The programs of Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco impact the lives of young people by helping them to develop the values, skills, attitudes, character and behavior that enable them to succeed in life. So when youth leave the Club at age 18, they are "future ready," with the ability to make positive choices and lead a self-sufficient life.
Community Art is an umbrella program consisting of 11 arts programs and activities. The idea is to expose our youth to different art forms through community partnerships to share our Club member's talents with our community and to expose their accomplishments to the public. This program engaged youth in hands-on community art projects and introduces them to a wide variety of invites community artists, groups & organizations to collaborate on art projects and exhibitions. The objective of Community Art is to increase the love of learning and strengthened positive character traits & civic engagement. Additionally, the program strives to support Club members' development of pride, self-esteem, confidence, experience, and a sense of belonging.
The Tenderloin Clubhouse has 5 departments, Education, Art, High School Services, Health & Fitness, and Social Recreation. With only 4 full-time programmers, cross-departmental collaboration was essential to the success of the program. With an average daily attendance of 90 members, over 45 members were involved on one level or another. Community Art was a clubhouse project.
