“SEE THE SOUND OF HOPE”
Survivors of severe trauma get through the recovery process each in their own individual way. For many victims of sex trafficking, the process is complex and has many parts. An art therapy project led by Operation SafeHouse, “See the Sound of Hope,” is an exhibit that displays the artwork from these survivors of sex trafficking. Their paintings and collages demonstrate the courage and strength they have become empowered with to help overcome emotional obstacles, as well as their journey into the healing process.

BREWS & BROS CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL
The Inland Empire has a nice variety of local breweries offering up some of the tastiest beer selections around. Showing love to its fellow breweries, Dale’s Bros Brewery in Upland has decided to invite some of our local breweries to help them celebrate their 11th anniversary. This festival will include 20 breweries from the Inland Empire’s Brewer Guild, offering up 50 different beers for tasting. Combine this with live music, food vendors and nifty vintage trailers, and you have one heck of a celebration. Just like the breweries, all food vendors will be from local restaurants serving up some of the IE’s best soda pop, tacos and barbeque. Various activities and games will be available for attendees of all ages, making for a nice afternoon with the family. If you’re not much in to beer, designated drivers are given a generous entrance fee of $10, while children 12 and under get in free. VIP and general admission entrants 21 and over receive a neat commemorative glass for tasting, and as a reminder of an awesome experience. Not only will this festival serve as an anniversary party, a portion of proceeds will go to the Claremont Educational Foundation, an organization committed to promoting quality education in the Claremont Unified School District. This is a great event, where you, your designated driver and the whole family will have a fun time. (Victoria Banegas)
