Greencastle Presbyterian partners with Studio B artists in Chairs for SAWs

Friday, June 1, 2012

The Greencastle Presbyterian Church is joining with Studio B and local artists to help raise funds to support the mission of Servants at Work (SAWs) in Putnam County.

SAWs provides labor, materials and expertise to build wooden ramps for needy members of the community who do not have the freedom of mobility to move in and out of their homes.

Sue Brucks, director of Studio B, is working to organize local artists to paint or otherwise transform vintage oak folding chairs from the original Presbyterian Church building in Greencastle.

The chairs will be available for sale to the public in a silent auction during the first Thursday open house at Studio B, 302 E. Washington St., Greencastle, from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, June 7.

All proceeds from the sale of the chairs will support the SAWs mission.

The SAWs team, with help from the Greencastle Presbyterian Church Board of Deacons and Studio B artists, will provide refreshments and share more information about the SAWs mission during the auction.

Prior to the auction, the chairs will be on display for public viewing at Studio B (Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.) and online at the Studio B Facebook page and the Greencastle Presbyterian Church website.

For more information, contact Brucks at 721-3001.
