One of the driving forces behind the development of this program was that adults do not get to have “Show and Tell” time. This page showcases the new art that was accomplished by participation in Your Arts Program, Inc classes. Note the smiles that are evident!

Festival of Trees
Our program decorated a tree for the “Festival of Trees”, an annual fundraiser, that is annually featured by the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library in Manitowish Waters. We asked for the community to donate a few ornaments to help decorate our tree and we were overwhelmed by the outpouring of beautiful handmade ornaments that came rolling in. Elf Jeanne, Brent and George created a beautiful tree chock full of delights! A huge thank you far and wide – from Mercer to Missouri – the ornaments were created by Pat Hahn, Jeanne Milewski, Darlene Furhman, Barbara McFarland, Kathleen Kvern, Frances Whitfield, Barb Sholl, Sheila Punches, Mary Ann Michaelis, Linda Winn, Deb Nicholson, Brent McFarland, Enid Cleaves and Petra Stephens.
