Plastic Lids for Community Art

Community organizer Karen Hallquist has come up with a wonderful plan to take some of the plastics we are no longer recycling and turn them into "art"! It’s easy to save the plastic lids and she needs all sizes, shapes and colors. Convenient drop off sites include bins at the Library/Museum, Elementary School, Serendipitea and 305 Lake Avenue. Check out her link on Facebook to see some of the potential ideas.
