Host families and others are thanked for contribution
The Fields Project, Inc., a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, and its subcommittees (CAL and Mix-It-Up) wish to thank out farm host families; Erin Folk, CPRP, assistant executive director of the Oregon Park District; the Oregon Park District Board; Andy Egyed of the Oregon Park District; Marsha Zaccone, director of the Oregon Public Library; Beth Simeone, an Eagles Nest Art Group historian; the editors of our local newspapers; and the City of Oregon.
We thank them for their cooperation, contributions, and commitment to help promote the goals of the Fields Project, Inc., namely to promote educational programs and projects
which blend the agricultural resources of the area with the arts as a means of promoting Ogle County as a center for practicing artists and those with an appreciation of the arts and agriculture.
The Fields Project, Inc. in completing its 14th year, continues to work to perpetuate the artistic heritage of Lorado Taft’s Eagle’s Nest Art Colony.
Artists from across our country and beyond are invited to come to live and be involved with area host farm families for a nine-day period culminating in an Art Festival relocated to the beautiful Oregon Park West location.
The all-volunteer committee appreciates the expanded media coverage, help from non-committee members, and the community’s reception. Without the help of these groups and individuals working with the Fields Project, Inc. committee, we would find it difficult to achieve our goals.
You are encouraged to view our website for more about us, www.fieldsproject.com, describing Plein Aire artwork, the CAL program, Mix-It-Up, and other events.

Conover Square Association thanks all who helped with book sale
The Conover Square Association would like to thank all who volunteered or participated in any way with the book sale that took place at Conover Square Mall.
All proceeds, a total of $586.88, have been donated to the Friends of the Oregon Library.
What Friends Are For: The Friends of the Oregon Public Library District is a volunteer, non-profit organization.
Through free public programs, fundraising and volunteer work, these Friends make a real difference in our community!
The Friends meet quarterly to plan activities to benefit the library and enjoy the company of other library enthusiasts.
Two annual fundraisers, a book sale during Autumn on Parade and a Holiday Cookie Sale, allow the group to purchase items for the library; and to sponsor local authors, lecture series and other educational and recreational programs for all ages at the library.
Because of the generous donations of books, we had many left after the sale.
So, it was decided to keep the doors open and continue to sell books for $1 a bag.
It was a great deal for book lovers and for the Friends of the Oregon Library.
Special thanks go out to Sue Engelkes, Lou VanderWyst, Laurie Behan, and many more. Thank you.
