Kathy LaFave has been chosen as Citizen of the Season for Summer 2008.
Six years ago Kathy conceived and executed an auction at the Springdale Elementary School procuring and auctioning beautiful art pieces donated by artists of Springdale and artists selling their work in Springdale. This year will be the sixth year for this auction. During the past five years, the Art Auction has raised $34,604 for the Springdale Elementary School.
The school uses the donations for art and music supplies and education. It has also been used to support the school library. Mavis Madsen, who among other duties acts as the school secretary, said “It has changed our world here – from pecking on the ground for funding to flying like eagles. Because our school is so small, it gets no funding at all for art.”
This auction has not only benefited the school, students, their families and those purchasing the artwork but has also created a fun community event.
Thank you, Kathy!!
