Friends of Hôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti's art sale held at Ellis Armory

| Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011

It didn't take Dan Langfitt too long to put into perspective his feelings upon returning to the United States after spending a year living in Haiti as part of the agro-forestry project he is managing.

"The first hot shower is always a little bit of a shock," he confessed during the Friends of Hôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti's art sale and exhibition held at the Ellis Armory on Friday.

FHAS prexy Lucy Rawson was joined by Jamini Vincent Davies, Tim and Audrey Fisher, Don Fischer, Mernie Berger, Lowrie Ebbert, Denise English and Kitty Hillman for H'art & Soul of Haiti, where there was also Dr. Ralph Greco, who was lauded for his four decades of volunteer medical care and material support to the Haitian community of the Artibonite.

"It really is an honor ... Haiti is a part of my life and always will be," he shared.

Meanwhile, as artifiles claimed dibs on their favorites and big Catering passed around trays of cuisine inspired by the Haitian marketplace, Cello Fury unleashed themselves on the unsuspecting crowd with a passion that nearly blew the paint off the walls.

"And they say the strings are boring," laughed one party-goer.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
