Keweenaw Krayons supporters invited to meet Aug. 5 in Mohawk

MOHAWK -- Carol Rose, Keweenaw Krayons founder and current director, is soon to retire and will be leaving the area. While she will remain on as consultant, she will not be present in Mohawk to oversee the day-to-day happenings of this successful non-profit organization that brings art and culture to both children and adults in the Keweenaw Peninsula.

With a Strong Organization/Strong Youth (SOSY) Award from Great Lakes Center for Youth Development (GLCYD) Keweenaw Krayons is creating a sustainability plan. This award has made it possible to enlist the consulting services of Barbara Rose. With her help, the Keweenaw Krayons Board is renewed and ready to move forward.

To do that, the organization is inviting all interested persons (adults only, please) to help envision Keweenaw Krayons’ future in an important get together from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 5, at Horizons School, Mohawk -- home of the Keweenaw Krayons Art Center.

Refreshments will be served to fuel creative thinking. Please RSVP by calling Keweenaw Krayons at 337-4706. (Voice Mail is fine, but please leave your full name and phone number or email:
