Great River Artisans are Raising Their Hands!

The Great River Artisans will be “raising their hands” to help area children stay in school and succeed in school. This group of area artists will use a portion of their proceeds from their Holiday Show and Sale to provide a scholarship for Cornerstone’s Comprehensive Youth Services program.  This program provides counseling and casework services to children who are struggling in school and to their families.

Glass jewelry artist Linda Lucke is one of the organizers of the event and one of the exhibiting artists. She is “happy to be supporting such a wonderful and necessary cause” and understands the power of counseling and the difference it can make to a child struggling in school.

The annual Holiday Show and Sale will be held on Saturday, November 1 from 10 until 4:00 at the Madison Park Christian Church in Quincy. It will feature the work of 14 local artists presenting decorative, wearable, and functional artwork. A check for the scholarship will be presented to John Hirner at 2:00. Please stop by to show your support for local artists, for Cornerstone, and for our community’s children.
