OCEAN COUNTY YAM
The Ocean County YAM festivities were held at the Jackson Branch Library and was well attended. Artwork was hung beautifully on the walls and the kids were so excited.
Best of all, the Jackson High School art students were participating by painting the kids' faces! Flowers, butterflies, and basketballs were proudly exhibited on the cheeks of many little artists.
Holly Callahan & Karen Blenner were wonderful YAM chairs and even had the Jackson Township Mayor there proclaiming Youth Art Month and a US Senator presenting a YAM proclamation!
The students were called up to receive their awards and a special gift donated by Mike Pecci from Crayola. The students even received a cool tie-dye smock!
It was a wonderful day for all who attended!
