Maple Fest Displays

Middle school students in the Open Doors after-school art program combined their love of art and maple syrup when they artfully painted a dozen sap buckets in time for the Maple Festival.

Their colorful thematic creations, created under the guidance of St. Albans Town Educational Center instructor Amanda Parker Bates and City School art teacher Kathy Brown, will be used two-fold this weekend: They’ll be on display all weekend at a dozen area businesses and, on Sunday, will be filled with candy for distribution to parade-goers by students walking in
the procession.

Buckets can be seen at: Howard’s Flower Shop, As the Crow Flies, Kevin Smith’s Sports Connection, Bayberry Cottage, RSVP, St. Albans City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, STAART Gallery, Sweet Nothings, Park CafĂ©, and Betty's Flower Basket.

Open Doors is a 21st Century Community Learning Center program designed to assist middle school students in meeting state and local academic achievement standards in core subjects by providing enrichment opportunities. Programs are based at the St. Albans City and St. Albans Town Educational Center.
