Local Woman Uses Side Business to Benefit the Community

Tina Henrie (right) presents a donation to  Scottie Draper from ETV News for the No Grave Goes Unadorned project.Many people have come to know Tina Henrie throughout the years through the local hospitality and tourism industry. Most recently, Henrie secured a spot as the face of the Carbon County Office of Tourism, serving as the specialist for the county.Throughout her career, Henrie has nurtured her love of people and meaningful relationships, which prompted her to create a business that she operates after her traditional workday is done.Over one year ago, Henrie began work as an Independent Scentsy Consultant. Early on, she knew she wanted to give back any chance that she could.“One important motto attached to Scentsy and its consultants is to ‘give back more than you take,’” Henrie said. “With this idea in mind, I am able to donate to groups or individuals that I feel strongly about.”In October, she donated over $200 to a local breast cancer resident who was traveling daily for treatments. Recently, she raised over $170 for the American Heart Association, a very personal fundraiser since her mother passed way a short time ago from heart disease. Her desire to give back has grown from there.“After reading an article online about the No Grave Goes Unadorned program, I knew I wanted to do something to help,” Henrie said. “I contacted Scottie Draper with ETV News and told her I wanted to do a fundraiser to help raise money for the program.”Each month, Henrie offers a personal special to her customers where they can get a personalized scent crate. With her recent scent crate, she donated 20% of her commissions to the No Grave Goes Unadorned program. She was able to raise $140 for the project, which will help purchase supplies to ensure each grave is adorned with a handmade flower this Memorial Day.Already looking to give back again, Henrie is currently organizing fundraiser to benefit Wellington Pioneer Days. If you or your organization are interested in a fundraiser and would like more information, please contact Tina Henrie at (435) 630-1670. read more

Charles I art collection reunited for first time in 350 years as

first_imgHe said: “I’m very gamekeeper, because the Royal Collection generally doesn’t borrow, we lend, whereas the Royal Academy is almost entirely poacher, so we sort of understand it from both points of view.”My presence there reminds colleagues in other institutions that the Royal Collection has in the past been a generous lender. “No institution would do a reciprocal arrangement, but we have in the past been very generous, for which these institutions are very grateful.” Queen Henrietta Maria with Sir Jeffrey Hudson, 1633, by Sir Anthony van Dyck, which is in the new exhibition Charles I: King and Collector Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Many of the pieces were regained by Charles II following the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, but some of them have never come back to England. Some of the most celebrated pieces include four Mortlake tapestries of Raphael’s Acts of the Apostles which have been kept in the Mobilier National in Paris.Two Titian pieces have also been retrieved, the Supper at Emmaus, from the Louvre in Paris, and Charles V with a Dog, from the Museo del Prado in Madrid. Desmond Shawe-Taylor, Surveyor Of The Queen’s Pictures, said he and Per Rumberg, curator of the RAA, had not had any trouble persuading the foreign curators to give up the paintings.He said: “The key thing in any negotiation is really to remember that the person making the decision is also a curator, and is therefore as enthusiastic about curatorial projects as the person asking for the loan.”All the curators that we spoke to were fascinated by the subject and therefore found themselves personally as scholars inclining toward the loan.”He added that the Royal Collection’s previous generosity had persuaded some museums to relent.

India’s Jasprit Bumrah occupied second place.
