the project

The Arts in the Park Celebration will take place on Saturday, August 6th from 1:00pm to 3:30pm. Lorain Community groups are being asked to sponsor a table that offers a simple Make It-Take It craft activity for children at Sam Felton Jr. Park (formally known as Central Park in Lorain). 

Arts in the Park envisions children enjoying the park, being able to experience multiple crafts, learning about organizations in their community and meeting their neighbors in a fun setting.

Ms. Gloria J. Buxton, retired education administrator, is creating and organizing this event with the support of Third Ward Councilwoman Pamela M. Carter.
