Successful “EGGZ-IBIT” Event a Favorite for the Children





We would like to thank all the children, Moms and Dads that came out to participate in our first annual EGGZ-IBIT egg painting event.
The young artists were very proud of their work…and some of the Dads, too!

The EGGZ can be viewed in the windows of some of our local merchants and in the windows of Studio 659. Make sure you look for them when you attend the Easter Egg Hunt at 10:00 am and the Easter Parade at 2:00 pm on Saturday, March 19th.

Studio 659 would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped with this project — especially our newest board members Jennifer Young and Joe Erickson. Special thanks to Tiffany Wolfe, a student at Calumet College.
