Art in the Garden scholarship event planned Aug. 19

GOODMAN, Wis. — Vendors are still being sought for the annual Art in the Garden at the home of Lynn and James Stankevich, 105 Main St., Goodman. The event will run will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 19.

To reserve a space at $10 per booth, call 715-336-2077 or 715-548-1366.

Vendors should let the Stankevichs know their special needs for their booth.

Jointly sponsored by the Stankevichs’ and the Varsity Club of Goodman-Armstrong Creek Schools, any money each of them raises goes toward scholarships or other needs. The Stankevichs present a scholarship in honor their son, Brian, a cancer victim at a very young age.

As shoppers browse through the garden’s paths, vendors are tucked away among the hostas, lilies, ferns and  ponds.

Jewelry work, quilt work, and other forms of crafts and art such as paintings, pottery, cloth works, cards and garden art are set up beneath towering maples or in the sunken gazebo area garden.

Vendors and visitors can relax and soak up the atmosphere as they shop, sell or listen to live music by the band, “Cuttin Grass” performing from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Stankevichs remind shoppers there also will be food and refreshment for sale throughout the day. The Varsity Club also uses any food and beverage profits for their scholarships to worthy students. They sell the hotdogs, the bratwurst, and the hamburgers and the beverages.

Among the extras will be homemade sauerkraut carefully prepared by Brian’s grandparents. In addition, pure maple syrup from Brian’s uncle will be for sale.

In their seventh year, the event has grown featuring more than 30 vendors and there will be bucket drawings that guests may purchase tickets to win.

In case of rain, the event will be moved to the Goodman fire/rescue hall. 

“Come browse, listen to music, shop and relax,” Lynn Stankevich said. “Bring a friend.”
