Sarah PalinRie Muñoz was invited to a tea at the Governor’s Mansion in Juneau last month by Todd Palin, Governor Sarah Palin’s husband, or ‘First Dude” as he is called. The event honored the former first ladies of the State of Alaska. Governor Sarah Palin was present along with their newborn baby Trig and his sister, Piper. Rie gave a framed Peaceable poster personalized with the inscription “To Trig, welcome to the world”. Rie cheerfully told Todd that this was the first time she has ever been invited to a tea by a man.


ELECTION TIME

Pat Owen & CathyRie’s daughter-in-law, Cathy Muñoz, is running for the District 4 House of Representatives seat here in Juneau. Rie has been going door to door with the candidate and other volunteers, discussing issues and urging people to vote. They have been getting a lot of exercise, mostly in the rain and wind. That impresses the voters to see the candidate battle the elements along with Rie Muñoz knocking at their door.

Cathy ran a great campaign six years ago for the Senate seat and came within two percentage points of winning. She won the recent August 26 primary and ‘God willing and tide rising,’ she will go all the way this time. Good luck Cathy!

HOMEMADE STATIONARY

Rie has cut and pasted her own stationary to send to friends featuring every day from July’s weather box on our local newspaper. Since much of one’s conversation seems to be focused around the weather, Rie decided to dispense with the small talk and save the writing for more personal matters. As you can see, our ‘drought’ is over and the crops will be fine.

 


BEAR IN TOWN TAPESTRY

Bear TapestryRie Muñoz just received a new tapestry from Aubusson, France. This magnificent tapestry, “Bear In Town” measures 54” x 65” and sells for $25,000. The tapestry will be on display at the Rie Muñoz Gallery in Juneau.

 

DREAM POSTER

Rie Muñoz was asked to use one of her popular images, “The Dream” for use in Alaska Statehood Celebration. The 20” x 24” poster will be used to promote the meeting on October 16-18 in Anchorage of the “Alaska Visionaries; Seekers, Leaders and Dreamers.” For more information, visit http://alaskahistoricalsociety.org.
