BetterArts Partners with Hospice for Kids' Craft Event

Better Arts board members Holly Boname (far left) and Amberlee Clement work with children at last year's event.
For the second year in a row, betterArts has partnered with Survivor Outreach Services of Fort Drum and Hospice of Jefferson County to present "A Time of Holiday Remembrance" from 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Hospice of Jefferson County in Watertown for children who have lost a loved one.

The holiday crafts, lunch, and cookie-decorating party will culminate at 12:45 in the decorating of flower pots with the assistance of betterArts members utilizing collage materials, photos, and more to commemorate someone the children love who passed away. This event is free and for children between the ages of 6 and 12. Those attending are encouraged to bring photographs for this project. Poinsettas donated by Home Depot in Watertown will be put into the pots at the project's completion for youngsters to take home and nurture.

To RSVP or for more information, call Joyce Combs at (315) 788-7323. Hospice of Jefferson County is located at 1398 Gotham St. in Watertown.
