BIRMINGHAM FASHION WEEK ~ Rising Design Star
CONGRATULATIONS TO Mary Arlin & Olivia!!! You guys ROCKED THE RUNWAY!!!!!
Finalists in the Buffalo Rock Company Rising Design Star 'Rock the Runway' challenge displayed their garmets made of unconventional materials for judges, Friday, April 25 in Birmingham. The designs of the 16 middle school and high school students were narrowed down from more than 120 entries from around the state, two of which were our VERY OWN, MARY ARLIN BUNNELL and OLIVIA BUTLER!!!! The students also displayed a second outfit made of at least 50 percent Buffalo Rock Company/Pepsi material.
Mary Arlin modeled her own dress and Grace Martin modeled the 2nd challenge dress. Harriet Shelly modeled the dress designed by Olivia and Kate Higginbotham was the model for her 2nd challenge dress. They did such a wonderful job on the construction, craftsmanship and creativity of both dresses.

Empty Bowls Project
Did you know the food insecurity rate in Limestone is 13.4 percent, or 10,810 residents.
The rate is even higher for the county's children at 22.2 percent with 4,310 at-risk for hunger,according to Nikki Colwell at Friendship Church/Full Tummy Project.
Please consider attending the EMPTY BOWLS PROJECT to benefit Limestone County Churches involved, feeding over 70 families a week locally.
The Talented & Gifted art students, with the help of local artist Alissa Rose Clark, created clay bowls which they are donating to the event. Their ceramic pieces turned out beautiful!!
