Springfield Artworks and the Trembley's are excited about their new exhibit that opened last week. It is a compilation of over 70 items ranging from an Antique Fireman's Coat, Hand painted Folk horses, various kinds of kimono's and kimono stencils, handmade doll, toys and children’s snacks. "We have collected these items when we went on a Friendship Force Exchange many years ago and then again on visits back to our host families" Margie says. They have also hosted various Japanese business people in their home over the years.
The Platteview Hight School Art Club, under the direction of Jamie Hansen, assisted Springfield Artworks with the signage for the exhibition. "The success of the exhibit is due to the assistance of the teacher and students." commented Margie Trembley. "They translated the English to Japanese and made placards for all pieces in the exhibit."
"We wanted to share with the community the wonderful art of the Japanese people. We invite you to come by and learn about ancient and modern day Japan."

The evening will begin with a social hour complete with food and beverages. Presentations from the Lofte Board of Directors will include financial position and plans for the future. Artistic Director, Kevin Colbert will highlight his fond memories of the 2011 productions and announce his play selections for 2013.
The Lofte will also recognize three outstanding volunteers for their contributions to the Lofte. The Dale Crosby Awards are given in the categories of "Parker/Usher," "Behind the Scenes," and "Overall." The award is named in honor of long-time Board President, Dale Crosby whose selfless dedication to the Lofte was an inspiration to others.
