On behalf of the participants and students of the Ely Chapman Education Foundation's programs: The S.U.N.S.H.I.N.E. Learning Station, Middle School Program, Talented And Gifted (TAG), and Sensational Summer Camp participants thank you to the community for supporting our first annual "A Taste For Fine Art." The event was a great success and we appreciate all who attended, placed bids on the student's artwork and the live auction, and enjoyed the spaghetti dinner. A big thank you to Peoples Bank for the donation of window space for the children's artwork for two weeks, and to the Boy Scouts of Troop 231 and their leaders: Steve Reagan, Matt McDowell and Steve Temesvary who, along with Garry Hontz, did all the cooking, served all the food for the spaghetti dinner, and completed the cleanup, leaving the kitchen in excellent condition.
