From the book…

When House Wren wakens to a new morning in the forest glen, she looks out at the big world and laments;

“The world is so vast, and I am so small,
There is nothing important about me at all.”

Fortunately, Grandmother Owl is nearby with some encouraging words of wisdom;

“Little wren, don’t forget that each day is a choice,
To do all that you can, with your gift; with your voice!”

As House Wren flies through the woods and over the farm, she has many little adventures that give her the opportunity to help her fellow animals…

“Encouraged, the wren rides the breeze to the pen
Where the rooster is strutting and bossing the hens.
Disheartened, they crouch in the corner and droop
Not seeing the fox who is stalking the coop.”

Hope Rising 2017

On Friday, April 28th we held our third annual benefit concert: Hope Rising! Deer Creek Banquet Facility was the beautiful venue for this event, which was sold to capacity and was a tremendous success! Stacey Renee Music provided the entertainment for the night, and guests were on the dance floor all evening! As we continue to trade stories and impressions of Friday night, we keep coming back to overwhelming support we received. It is so heartwarming to reflect on the enthusiasm and encouragement we experienced through every stage of the event; from the beginning stages of planning and the establishment of our amazing sponsorships, to the joy and celebration of the concert. Needless to say, Hope Rising would not exist without our community support! We depend on the generosity and kindness of all of those who support our mission; in order to operate from day to day, and to continue to come together once a year to share our journey and efforts through this important event. For information on how you can participate in Hope Rising next year, contact our event coordinator, Lisa at lisa@herizonhouse.com Hope IS Rising!
