As one of the board members for the Crawford County Arts Council, I volunteer to help with different events in our community. Last week, I participated in two events and had a blast.
The first event was Red, White and Blues that was held at Aumiller Park in Bucyrus, Ohio. The event was organized by the Positive Seekers and they asked that the Arts Council participate. Beverly, Rose and I did face painting.
We also helped the kids make pirate hats out of newspaper, then decorated them with all sorts of things like stickers, ribbons and markers.
It was a great time with live music and beautiful weather!
The other event that I helped out with was the Bucyrus Farmers Market. Of course when I found out that I had to be there at 7:30a.m. on a Saturday morning, I wasn’t exactly thrilled. But after I got there and saw all of the vendors that were set up, it was such an awesome and inspiring environment. Their were yummy baked goods,
these adorable little jars of preserves,
and handmade goods such as quilts, jewelry and other items.
I just could not resist this adorable bag made by my friend Anita. My sketch books and art supplies will fit in it perfectly for when I am on the go.
I shared the Arts Council booth with Bob and Sandy Laipply. She had some of her beautifully painted wine bottles and glasses for sale, as well as samples of artwork for her upcoming classes. I had some of my paintings, hand carved stamps, hand made journals and jewelry for sale as well.
We also passed out literature for the Arts Council and had a little make and take for the kiddos where they made artwork out of their fingerprints.
Again, I was lucky enough to have perfect weather, and I definitely did not regret getting up early on a Saturday morning 😉
Are you involved in any local activities in your community? I would love to hear about them!
