Self portraits at library

Madison-Plains High School students have established a presence in two ways at Mount Sterling Public Library this month. First, students in the Drawing II class created self-portraits in charcoal, which are on display at the library. Shown here are portraits by (from left) Christopher Stonecipher and Andy Hirth. The other artwork on display is by Brittany Stepp, Nathan Toppings, Moriah Joyce, Briana Dillon and Cheyenne Kelly. With the library’s organizational help, high school students also read their favorite stories to elementary school students during National Library Week (April 14-18). They visited Mount Sterling, Midway and Madison Rural Elementary schools.

Love them, immunize them!

National Infant Immunization Week is April 19-26. Madison County-London City Health District promotes Immunization Week by having a drawing for a basket of goodies. Infants and children who are up-to-date with immunizations, for their age, are entered into the contest. Pictured here is Jayce Moses with his parents, Jessica Moses and Eric Newell. Jayce was getting his two-month shots. Contact the Madison County Health Department at 740-852-3065 to schedule your child’s immunization appointment.

Republican Women meet

The Madison County Republican Women’s Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. April 22 at The Coover House at 134 N. Main St., London. The club’s college scholarships will be presented to high school recipients. State Senator Steve Austria will present proclamations of outstanding achievement to the scholarship recipients and give an legislative update. All interested persons are invited. For further information and/or reservations for dinner, call Sharen Jarvis at 740-857-3421 or Karen Rohner at 614-879-7093.

Brooke is pictured here with her mother Betsy Ames, grandmother Carole Ames, and Republican Women’s Club member Andra Troyer. They are examining a leg prosthesis from Ohio Willow Wood that Brooke wore when she was 5 years old.
