This year, seven of our students volunteered their time to paint the former Re-Uzit shop window in downtown New Holland, in order to advertise the upcoming Christmas on Main celebration. The celebration is scheduled this year for Saturday, December 3, 2011 and is sponsored by the New Holland Business Association. This is the third year that the art department of Garden Spot High School has participated by sending students to decorate empty store windows and advertise the event.
Our students decided this year to paint an outdoor snow scene, complete with church, lamp posts, fir trees and snowmen. The students met with Mrs. Myers, Art teacher, and New Holland mayor, Mr. Wilbur Horning on Saturday, November 12 for his approval of the scene and then began the task of painting on the window.
A special thank you to Micoleen Schonour, Allison Kurtz, Kaitlyn Frank, Shannon O’Malley, Miki Do, Lauren Martin and Cody Fields for giving of their time and talents to help make a difference in our community!
