Congratulations, River Clay Arts Fesival
A hearty congratulations and a huge thank you to all who helped make River Clay Art Festival a resounding success. Artist after artist commented about the remarkable organization of the first-time event and were pleased with the show’s attendance, in spite of the overcast weather. Each of you who worked on the festival should be very proud because there are few chances to help start a new community tradition, and you did.

Don Kyle, Mayor
