Morning Pointe Residents Win Ribbons at Danville-Boyle County Fair
DANVILLE, KY — Creativity paid off for three Morning Pointe of Danville residents who entered their handcrafted items in the Danville-Boyle County Fair Floral Hall.
For the past 20 years since his retirement, Ira Moser has whittled and painted wooden figurines. Moser’s proud accomplishments fill a curio cabinet, each project telling the story of a man who learned the time-honored craft on his own. His recent piece of a baseball pitcher took home a ribbon at the county fair — a testament to his years of skill and effort.
Marcia Kramp is seasoned at sewing, knitting and crochet, making clothes and blankets for all of her children and grandchildren. Since moving to Morning Pointe, she has attended every single craft activity. Kramp entered a floral nail art piece she created during craft time, and — like Moser’s project — it was worthy of a county fair ribbon.
Pat Chipps also took home a ribbon for one of her paintings. For years, she has embraced her eye and talent for art, and enjoys hosting painting classes for her peers at the personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care community.
Morning Pointe residents celebrate their creativity with activities and events that embrace artistic abilities of all kinds as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day(tm) programs.
