APRIL CRAFT

Trash to treasure, how often have you heard the phrase "one mans trash is another's treasure".  We know this will be true for our April craft when you create a priceless piece of memorabilia from refurbished wood from "Jordan's Big Store".

We are going to make a coaster set which will consist of 4 coasters and a holder.  The holder will be made from refurbished wood from the "Jordan Big Store" which is now the Museum.  The coasters will be made from plexiglass which you can choose the design you want for them whether it is a saying or a picture.   Bring your own or there will be a selection of designs, and pictures provided to choose from, one being a picture of the "Big Store".

We will be celebrating the Stores 100th birthday in 2000, so this will be a unique keepsake you will treasure for years to come.

Class begins at 12:00 until 2:00.  There is an admission charge of $20.00 for non-members and $15.00 for members.
