2022 New Virginia Old Settlers Arts and Crafts Show

There will be an arts and crafts show in the New Virginia Lions Hall on Sunday, July 10.  The project must be handcrafted and must have been completed by the person displaying the item.  We will have 3 age divisions: kids division 0-12 years old, junior division 13-18 years old and adult over 18.  We will try to divide the age groups into categories of items.  Examples of items would be painted glassware, stained glass, metal or wood working, paintings, drawings, craft items, sewn, knitted, embroidered, or crocheted items.  The items can be brought to the Lions Hall at 9:30 am, and the show will start at 10 am and end at 2 pm.  Please make arrangements to have all items picked up by 2:30 pm.  Ribbons will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  Be creative and participate.  Items will not be for sale, but exhibitors may have business cards or flyers available.  If you would like to volunteer to help with the show or have questions, please call Deann Strange at 515-210-8847.

Church in the Park

The Old-Fashioned Church Service in the Park will be held in the Lions Park at the new shelter house by the water tower at 10:30 am.  The service is open to all denominations, and everyone is welcome to attend.  The service is scheduled to be hosted by the Christian Church.

Clarke County Old Iron Tractor and Machinery Show

Clarke County Old Iron Club will be having a tractor and machinery show on West Street.  Anyone with a tractor or piece of machinery that they would like to display is invited to join the show.  Tractor games are being planned, and more details will be given in the June Tri-Corner-Express.  Make plans to participate in the show by bringing a tractor or piece of equipment to share or to watch the events and check out all the farm machinery on display.
