[ARCHIVED] County Executive to Attend Reception for Youth Art Competition in Sparrow Run

On Thursday evening County Executive Tom Gordon is scheduled to attend a Community Reception in Sparrow Run to celebrate the art created by local youth for the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials’ “What Home Means to Me” competition.

Earlier this summer, New Castle County Department of Community Services partnered with the Sparrow Run Resource Center to host a pizza party and art event to encourage local youth to participate in the art competition. Approximately 20 children attended the event. General Manager for the Department of Community Services, Sophia Hanson, stated that “This Art Show is a way of celebrating the creativity of our youth and bringing the community together”.

The reception on Thursday evening will showcase the artwork created at the event and will include remarks by County Executive Gordon, County Councilman David Tackett and Sophia Hanson. The attendees will also be regaled with entertainment from the Twin Poets.

The art show and reception is scheduled for Thursday, July 31, 2014 from 5-7 p.m. at the Sparrow Run Resource Center located at 148 Flamingo Drive, Newark, DE 19702.
