Community invited to the Loft event Saturday

From 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, the Loft on Fidalgo & Dock streets will be open for the public to see new building renovations, look at art, have dessert and refreshments and more.

The open house will also feature music and a drawing for a gift basket.

The first 100 visitors will receive a free lock and engraving to attach to the sculpture “The Heart of a Soldier.”

“I wanted a way to honor veterans that was special and lasting,” said Annabelle Rockwood, organizer of the event. The locks and engravings are for military members as well as friends and families of military members to honor the soldiers in their lives.

Rockwood and her husband renovated the old Feed and Seed building, starting around two months ago.

The sculpture was built at CNB Iron Works & Construction. There will be more art featured from a pop-up Skulpt Too art gallery.

Rockwell hopes the building will attract retail and eateries, and be “somewhere that residents and visitors can come relax and shop.”
