Saturday, June 25, was a great day to be in Cambridge City for the 175th Anniversary of their founding. There were up to 20 artists set up all about town painting/drawing with different mediums and creating wonderfully creative pieces.
Many sang the praises of Bess Sturgis who organized the art portion of the celebration. Look below for some of the artists and their work. (to see all the artists you can click to go to Go Wayne County’s Facebook site). Judging began at 2:30 and the winner was to be announced at around 4:30. The winner of this competition is listed at the end of this article.
Don’t miss the rest of the week’s celebrations. Today includes the interactive walk through the Riverside Cemetery to meet some famous folks from the past.
Next week will be keystone cops around town putting people in jail who are not wearing their buttons and many more events and activities. We will keep you updated each day at GoWayneCounty.com.
See more visitors from the past in period clothing today during the tour of the Riverside Cemetery. Jerry Mattheis and his wife Phyllis, who submitted articles for Go Wayne County in print and online for the celebration, toured the town in their garb yesterday.
And the winner is…
The winner of the “Mick Fowler Cash Purchase Award” commemorating the “Cambridge City 175th Anniversary Celebration” is Betsy Davis of Carthage Indiana.
