Mission accomplished!

A primary goal of the Union Arts Council's Competitive Art Exhibition on Dec. 1 was to donate proceeds to the Farmerville High School Fine Arts Program.  We did that on Jan. 10, when a check for $500 was presented to Courtney Mardis, FHS art teacher and coordinator of the Fine Arts Program.  Shown here at the presentation are (from left) Kathy Watkins, president of the Arts Council; Mardis; and Bob Ward, coordinator of the Competitive Art Exhibition.  Thanks to everyone who helped make the Art Exhibition a success!  Plans are already being made to do it again next December.
