    • marion showMarion County Recycling and Litter Prevention will be hosting it’s 4th Annual Eco-Art Show at the Historic Palace Theater.  I will be vending there along with tons of local artists.  Looks like it will be worth the trip north of Columbus to join in the fun and eats throughout the day so come on out!!
    • Communities all over the country are planning America Recycles Day events on Friday, November 15th. The Marion County Recycling & Litter Prevention 4th Annual Eco-Art Show is a wonderful way to celebrate creativity and a green economy. Artists and crafters have created beautiful, useful items made from materials that would have otherwise been thrown away. Folks really need to see this stuff to believe it—adorable mittens repurposed from shrunken wool sweaters, cool furniture up-cycled from broken pallets and steel barrels, burned out light bulbs turned into pretty tree ornaments, discarded men’s ties sewn into darling hair bows, repurposed greeting cards, scrap metal sculptures, recycled glass art, reclaimed wood birdfeeders, silverware jewelry, hand-woven scrap rugs, and so much more. It’s a great opportunity to find that perfect, unique holiday gift, plus, it’s just a lot of fun to look around. We’ll have Patrick Upp‘s wood-fired pizza, a cash bar, theatre popcorn and The Candy Shack & Sarah Robinson’s Sweet Surrender Cookies to enjoy at The Marion Palace Theatre from 12 noon until 7pm.
