Bella loves children and children love Bella. So when she visited this local play area, young ladies Francesca, Lauryn, Maddy, Olivia and Aubrey were instantly drawn to her. Two girls hopped on the calf and the other three made sure Bella had a smile. Among the things you can find at this location are food, fun and more food. Do you recognize where Bella is?
The winners who correctly identified Bella’s location in the May 11th issue are: Heidi Kassinger, New Holland, and Ron Wenger, New Holland. Bella was at St. Stephen Reformed Church, New Holland.

Excitement is running high in the five municipalities that are served by the Adamstown Area Library. A long-awaited move to a new facility has become a reality.
An Open House was held at the former Adamstown VFW, where a new library for the residents of East and West Cocalico, Brecknock, Adamstown and Denver will be housed. The building is slated to be the library’s new home in 2017.
Residents got a glimpse of the plans for their new facility at the Open House. They also learned of the extensive repairs needed to be done before the move is possible. The hope of a new library is not a novelty to the community, but now that hope is within reach. Through their hard work, frugality and optimism, the Friends of the Adamstown Area Library have been preparing for this occasion by saving for the day when a move to a new facility will actually take place. The Friends presented a check for $100,000 to help fund the project.

Memory Project Art Is Love In Action

Over 70 talented Garden Spot High School art students participated in the memory project. The Memory Project is a nonprofit organization that invites art teachers and art students to create portraits for kids around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as neglect, abuse, loss of parents and extreme poverty.

Student artists connect with children from other countries and receive actual photos of the children, and then Garden Spot students create original portrait works of art to be given to these students. Students used a variety of mediums to create these pieces that are cherished by the children experiencing tough times. In addition to the skills the art students gain during the project, they also more importantly gain a chance to connect with other children around the world. Project coordinators video tape the children’s reactions upon receiving their art and a copy is sent to the school for viewing. This special project is a win-win for both recipient and student artist. The project is supported by the Spartan Foundation and overseen by art teacher Toni Myers.

Shown with their art portraits are Georgia Holder (left) and Mary Zelenak (right).
