A Bowlful of Success

Cynthia Gurreri (above), president of the Pocahontas County Arts Council, assisted guests in selecting one of the many handmade bowls at the Empty Bowls fundraiser October 23.

The annual dinner, hosted by the Pocahontas County Family Resource Network and the Pocahontas County Arts Council, was a take-out affair this year – and was made possible by the hard work of FRN employees, local artists and community volunteers. Despite many concessions to the Covid-19 pandemic, the fundraiser was a success, with the proceeds benefitting the Harvest House Food Pantry.
