St. Charles Bank & Trust Company hosted an Art Show at their main branch located at 411 W. Main Street. The event was a success with a great turnout, as well as art submissions by Haines Middle School students.
"Art gives kids a chance to express themselves” said Laurie Wennemer, Art Teacher at Haines Middle School. “It gives them an outlet for creativity. We also had students participate who take music classes instead of Art during the day, so this gave them the chance to showcase their talents in Art as well."
With only 30 slots available for the Art Show, there were 60 submissions, which showed great participation and presented a challenge to feature all of the artwork. "We had 200 people come through the bank for this event”, said Janet Roman, Assistant Branch Manager, St. Charles Bank & Trust. “Parents, grandparents, neighbors and customers came through to show their support of the artwork. We received a lot of positive feedback from this event."
