Debi Jennings is Featured Artist

Debi Jennings is the featured artist at the current art show at the Parish Public Library. Debi presently lives in Parish. Her interest in painting stems from when her daughter Jasmine, was taking an art course from Pat Carson of Oswego, NY in 2010. Debi became so interested in the class that she joined her daughter at the lessons. Jasmine didn't continue her pursuit in the art field but Debi was hooked. She stated "its so relaxing, it was like having a massage at the spa." In four short years her talent has blossomed. She is a talented artist and has had her art displayed in a gallery in Shopping Town Mall, Dewitt and locally at the Parish Antiques and Country Market. Selected pieces will be for sale.

The art show is open to the public during regular hours at the Parish Public Library.

GENEOLOGY CONTINUES

The Genology class was so successful they will meet again. The next meeting will be February 28 at 8:30 am at the Parish Library. This is a casual group led by Donna Donahue.

The attendees were all at different stages of progress in researching their roots. If you would like to come be there at the designated time and date. If you have any questions call the library.
