The free Plate-Making workshops for the Made in Philipstown Banquet were a resounding success with more than 200 residents--adults, teens, kids--making their beautiful plates for the Banquet. Some of the makers had never made anything in clay and had a fabulous experience, as did everyone who came. The amazing teacher Lisa Knaus is now very busy firing the plates-not once but twice.
STILL BUSY MAKING
Tom Ptacek of Ptacek Home is busy creating the lovely wooden trivets that will be offered as gifts to donors.
Joe Regele has designed a beautiful 8-foot wooden bench to be branded with the Made in Philipstown logo. A team of can-do makers will build and brand the 80 benches for the 300-foot table. These will also be gifts offered to donors.
