'A Time of Holiday Remembrance' Outreach Project Recap

BetterArts on Saturday partnered with Survivor Outreach Services of Fort Drum and Hospice of Jefferson County to present "A Time of Holiday Remembrance" for children who have lost a loved one.

The event, held at Hospice of Jefferson Country's offices on Gotham Street in Watertown, featured arts 'n' crafts, lunch and cookies, a gifts giveaway, and a project hosted by betterArts that included decorating flower pots and planting poinsettas. Here are some photos from the event:

Many thanks to Joyce Combs for putting this event together; and Amberlee Clement, betterArts director of programming, for initiating this partnership. Poinsettas were generously donated by Home Depot in Watertown. An abundance of toys given out to the children in attendance were donated by Church of Christ in Syracuse.
