Art Classes for Seniors

Written by Lynn Long. Posted in Foundation

As part of our outreach to the community, local artist and educator Dave Laug has begun a class in introductory sketching and drawing. The class is held at the Marielders Building, at 6923 Madisonville Rd. Marielders is a nonprofit senior center dedicated to the enrichment of life for adults 55 years and older by providing activities and services. Established in 1977, Marielders serves Fairfax, Madison Place, Mariemont, Plainville and Terrace Park. The classes are open to Marielders members, and happen at 1pm on Mondays, October 3rd through November 7, at a very accessible cost of $5/class. All materials are supplied! This six week session teaches the basics of sketching and how to apply these tools. Typically around 15 seniors attend each of the classes. Dave Laug is a Director at the Woman's Art Club Cultural Center, and heads up the Adult Education task force.

Mariemont Preservation Foundation Donates $7500 for Loft

Written by Lynn Long. Posted in Foundation

In early September, the Mariemont Preservation Foundation (MPF) Board of Trustees unanimously voted to contribute $7500 to the construction work in the Loft of The Barn. The award letter states "The Trustees believe your organization contributes to the principles established by Mary Emery when the Village of Mariemont was begun - the quality of life for the residents and the education of our children." MPF was instrumental in polling the citizens about future use of the Barn when it was threatened with demolition; in applying for historic preservation awards on behalf of The Barn; and in funding four years of our Saturday family cultural series, "Mariemont Preservation Presents". We are so grateful for the encouragement and financial support of MPF, now and through the years.
