BY KEN GRABOWSKI

ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Local artist Carol Marshall was all
smiles on as officials from the Manistee
County Library officially dedicated a mural
they hired her to paint for the children’s
room of the main branch.
Library officials feel that Marshall’s
mural is the final piece of the puzzle in
remodeling project on that room over the
past several years. After the children’s
room at the Manistee County Library
received an upgrade, library officials
always felt that something was missing
from the final outcome.
What they determined the room
needed was a mural that could not only
encourage children to read, but one that
would depict many of the familiar scenes
from around Manistee County. The deci-
sion they made to fill that void was hire an
artist to paint a mural around the border
of the room, and they found the perfect
one in Marshall.
“I am very happy with it,” said
Marshall. “I think the thing I am most
happy about is the way it came together, as
one scene flows right into the next one. I
really didn’t want any breaks, as I wanted
it to go right through seasons. So, I am
really happy and excited about it.”
The 140-foot wall border now is a
circular mural created by Marshall that
includes such things as a raccoon reading
in the rain; the flow of books cascading
down the rainbow; a squirrel water skiing
on an open book, birds carrying books;
the book trolley loaded down with books;
hot air balloons filled with books in their
baskets; and salmon balancing books on
their backs.
They are all scenes that Marshall cre-
ated to challenge young minds to read and
explore all the things that the library has
to offer. The mural was something that
library board president Steve Rogers said
fit into their plans perfectly.
“On behalf of the library board I would
just like to thank you very much for a job
well done,” Rogers said at Wednesday’s
dedication. “It is the finishing touch for
this renovation, and this is just the icing
on the cake. It captured the theme won-
derfully.”
Manistee County Library Executive
Director Chuck Haemker said the
children’s room took a little longer to
complete than what they had originally
1
“I think the thing I am most
happy about is the way it
came together, as one scene
flows right into the next
one. I really didn’t want any
breaks, as I wanted it to go
right through seasons. So, I
am really happy and excited
about it.”

Christmas
trees, chocolate
and a prince
and princess
This past Sunday I
worked with a dozen
other volunteers to set
up 40 Christmas trees
in the lower level of the
Manistee Inn on River
Street, for Festival of
Trees. Manistee Inn is
playing host this year to
several events as part of
the Victorian Sleighbell
Parade and Old Christmas
Weekend. Manager April
Steele has become one
of my favorite people
to work with because of
her enthusiasm during
one of Manistee’s most
hectic weekends. In addi-
tion to the Festival of
Trees on the lower level
of Manistee Inn, the
Manistee County Child
Advocacy Center will
be presenting “For the
Love of Chocolate and
Children” in the store-
front next to Vincent’s
Ice Cream, Manistee
Community Kitchen will
be holding a Christmas
tree sale in the parking
lot and the First Annual
Sleighbell Prince and
Princess Pageant will be
held at the Manistee Inn
as well.
Festival of Trees is
presented each year dur-
ing Sleighbell Weekend by
the chamber and Habitat
for Humanity of Manistee
County and it’s a wonder-
ful way to kick start your
holiday spirit. This year
we have more than 40
trees, wreaths and cen-
terpieces decorated by
businesses, groups and
individuals. Festival of
Trees is sponsored by the
Manistee News Advocate
and is open to the public
on Friday, Saturday and
Sunday and visitors will
have a chance to bid on
the tree of their choice,
with proceeds benefiting
Habitat for Humanity of
Manistee County and the
chamber’s community pro-
grams.
Chamber members,
guests and the public are
invited to a sneak preview
of this beloved Manistee
holiday tradition during
Business After Hours this
Thursday from 5 until 7
p.m. This festive Business
After Hours is sponsored
by West Shore Bank and
attendees will have the
opportunity to network
among the trees and join
in the spirit of the sea-
son. The admission price
will include appetizers
prepared by Shay’s Chop
House and complimentary
drinks.
Christmas trees, choco-
late, a holiday party and a
prince and princess — this
is going to be so much fun.
Vote for your
favorite tree
With more than 40
trees, wreaths and cen-
terpieces, it will be hard
to choose a favorite, but
the public is invited to
try this weekend during
the 13th Annual Festival
of Trees. The Festival of
Trees encompasses a total
holiday atmosphere and all
of these beautiful holiday
items will be auctioned off
during the event in a silent
auction.
The public is invited to
vote for their favorite tree
with canned goods and pet
foods and those food items
go to local food pantries
and the Homeward Bound
Animal Shelter. Feel free
to vote for your own entry.
For the love of
chocolate,
children
New this year, the
Manistee County Child
Advocacy Center will be
hosting “For the Love of
Chocolate and Children”
during the Victorian
Sleighbell Parade and Old
Christmas Weekend. This
event will include at least
50 different chocolate
treats for sale, chocolate
demonstrations, a Chinese
raffle, and an arts and
crafts table.
Many children from
the area have made beau-
tiful drawings which, in
turn, have been made into
greeting/note cards. These
one of a kind cards will
be available for sale at the
arts and crafts table. The

planned, but that the wait
was well worth the extra
time.
“It took us a while to
get this off the ground,
but we kept the space
available,” said Haemker.
“When I came here it was
on the back burner in May
2007, but when we did
the room one of the things
we were looking to do was
bring in some energy to the
program. When I initially
thought about Manistee
County it was of a lake
scene or something like
that. Carol really took that
theme and made it work.”
Haemker said that
Marshall received a stipend
for painting the mural.
However, they were so
happy with the results that
they presented her with
a bouquet of flowers for
going above and beyond
with the mural.
Marshall said she put a
great deal of thought into
what she wanted to add to
the mural. It is something
she said kept her thinking
for the entire three months
she worked on it.
“It is all scenes of
Manistee County as there
are things from all over like
the bottle house in Kaleva
and the Coast Guard
Station,” said Marshall. “I
also put in River Street, the
fire hall as there are a lot
of scenes that people know.
There is also the other
kinds of scenes that are
always there like the sail-
boats, Sleigh Bell Parade so
all of Manistee is in there.
“Because it is children’s
library I tried to throw in
books as much as I could in
any size, shape or form and
even the little raccoon is
reading a book in the rain.”
This is the first commis-
sioned mural that Marshall
created and she said it is
something she would be
open to doing more of in
the future. The challenge
of making it work is some-
thing she would like to do
more of in the future.
“I have done the art
fair circuit with my other
artwork, but I am getting
tired of 5 a.m. and sit-
ting there all day long,”
said Marshall. “What I
really like about it is I do
a lot of research before I
paint. With the mural in
the library, I would be on
the computer every night
looking to come up with a
concept, and then go look
for similar images to incor-
porate it. That made it fun,
and I love working with the
people.”
Marshall said one of the
best parts about the library
mural was listening to the
response and feedback that
came from the children vis-
iting the library.
“I was constantly get-
ting feedback from the kids
and that was the best kind,”
said Marshall. “The little
ones under 5 would light up
and say ‘oh look there is ...’
Even the older kids would
say what they were seeing,
so the feedback was great. I
was there for three months
so I kind of got to know
some of the families and
they would check on the
progress that was made and
that was the best part of it.”
Local art teacher Mary
Wahr also had her students
draw their favorite parts of
the mural and they were
placed on display for every-
one to view the dedication
ceremony. A large number
of the public turned out as
well for the cermony.

There’s still time to make a charitable
donation to the Lake Bluff Bird
Sanctuary! The following items would
greatly assist in making Lake Bluff a
safe, enjoyable place to visit:
Rock salt - we use this to keep sidewalks and
driveways safe for visitors (the stuff in the green
bags works best!)
Compact fluorescent light bulbs - we’ve begun
converting Lake Bluff’s lighting to use CFL bulbs.
We are still in need of 8 dimmables of 75 to 100
watt incandescent equivalence.
Bird feeders - we can always use new squirrel
proof feeders to attract birds into viewing range.
Binoculars - new binoculars are always welcome
and will be used in educational programs.

The temperature in Iraq and Afghanistan

and occasionally they have snow in the winter.
Many live in tents. It is now getting colder,
similar to our weather.
We get our addresses from the web site
anysoldier.com. If you go to that site, you
will learn how it began… A soldier asking his
parents to continue sending packages to him so
he could share them with the soldiers who never
get any mail. That is what we do… We send to
the volunteer soldier address with “Attn: Any
Soldier” on the box. That volunteer soldier
watches to see who didn’t get mail and then our
Care Package goes to that lonely soldier.
If you know of anyone who is serving in Iraq or
Afghanistan, please send us the address and
we will be sure to send them a Care Package
as well. As of now, we have sent 670 Care
Packages since October 2007.
We recently received a US Flag that had been
flown over a Marine Corps base in Afghanistan
on July 4, 2010, along with a certificate of
appreciation for supporting the troops serving
there.
