Red Hat Society displays
memorabilia at Jewell Library
Jewell Public Library's April display is a collection of Red Hat Society memorabilia, donated by several women from the Jewell and Randall communities. The items provide the library with lots of fun color and joy this month. Items include hats, doll figurines, stuffed animals and pillows, jewelry holders, knick-knacks, picture albums and many other things. Feel free to stop by and look at all the interesting items on display.
Saturday story hour will be Saturday from 10 to11 a.m. with the belated- Easter party at that time. All area youth are welcome to attend.
New books recently added to the collections include Single Dad Cowboy by Brenda Minton, Hannah's Courtship by Emma Miller and Second Chance Summer by Irene Hannon. Gently used donations (books, DVDs and audio books) are being accepted at this time.
The Jewell Public Library continues to collect Coke rewards points to go towards magazine purchases for the library. Anyone with extra reward point codes, we will appreciate them! Reward point codes may be dropped off at the library at any time.
announces art contest winners
VFW Post No. 7830 Auxiliary has announced winners of the annual young American creative patriotic art competition.
The 2014 first place winner is Mitchell McMillan, a senior at Rock Hills High School. His entry went on to district competition where he received second place. On the local level Mitchell was presented a certificate and a cash award.
The second place winner is sophomore Chelsea Landreth. She received a certificate and cash award.
The contest promotes creative patriotism in our schools and provides an opportunity for young artists to compete for up to $10,000 in scholarship money. The art contest is open to all high school students and entry is due by the end of March each year.
Each entry is judged on originality of concept, presentation and patriotism expressed; content of how it relates to patriotism and clarity of ideas; design technique; total impact of the work; and uniqueness. Locally, entries receive cash awards as well as a cash award at the district level.
