Franklin Memorial hosts 15 children for piggy bank craft


A crafting session at the local library last week saw a total of 15 area children turn out and make a piggy bank, thanks to the help of a woman who runs a pottery studio in Statesboro.


Jill Carter of Southern Pottery visited Franklin Memorial on Tuesday, April 5, and led participants in creating a personalized piggy bank. Each participant, including Olivia Grace Burke (photographed), was given a ceramic bank, along with paint, to design as their hearts desired.


This was the third scheduled event part of the Vibrant Communities Grant awarded to Franklin Memorial Library with funding from the Georgia Council for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Mill Creek Foundation.


One more crafting session will be funded through this grant at the local library. On April 30 at 10 a.m., participating adults will paint a porch sign. To register, call 478-237-7791 starting April 15.
