For the second year in a row our small town of Fairbury showed they have a very big heart. Fairbury, along with the help of surrounding communities, stepped up and supported the local youth who are dealing with the challenges of living with autism.

Last year the team of Threes Pieces came in second in fund raising at the Lincoln event and this year bettered that spot by one, claiming top honors with more than $5,000 raised.

Non-toxic color powders were "splashed" on them at random intervals by FCCLA members throughout the course. They raised $1,000.

Clay Workshop At Art Guild Studio

A group of Jefferson County Art Guild members met Monday, Sept. 23 at the Fairbury Studio for a workshop to learn how to mold clay leaf forms into outdoor garden art pieces. The workshop was led by Linda Dawes from Omaha with the help of her husband, Perry. In the process they learned to choose leaves, both big and small, how to press them into the fluid cement mixture, letting them dry in the mounds of sand and then removing those leaves to reveal a unique cement leaf mold. These will be on display at Octobers First Friday at the Studio.

The members shown left to right are, Elda Heidemann, Twila Porter, Sherry Joubert, Linda Dawes, and Utha Furrow. Other participants were Depke Andres, Phyllis McCown, and Audrey Dawes.
