Cemetery Association

The Board of Directors of the Sheffield Cemetery Association met for their annual meeting at the Township Building at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Not many lots are being sold, this making the income portion look off balance from the expenses. For anyone interested in purchasing a cemetery lot, they are $400 and the maps are at the Township office. Call 968-3096 if you are interested in purchasing a lot.

The sexton was thanked for his work on the new road at the top of Section 9. The slate of officers was addressed and nominations were as follows: Paul Sam Lindberg, President, Jim McNeal, Vice President, Sexton, Joe Walton and Secretary/Treasurer Kristi Kulka. Committees were set up as follows: Building and Grounds: Jim McNeal, Dennis Sturdevant, Jay Fitch and Joe Walton; Finance: Jim McMillen, Jamie Steffan and Sam Lindberg. Jim Ordiway is a new member to the Board and the secretary is to contact him to see where he would like to be placed. The Endowment Trustees are Jamie Steffan and Jim McMillen. The next meeting of the cemetery board will be in September at the cemetery.

Main Street Artisans

The monthly meeting of the Main Street Artisans took place at the co-op with all artisans present with exception of Sue Curtin, who sells jams and jellies.

The artisans stated that the new way in which the shop is set up seems to be working well. Shoppers seem to flow within the shop. The shop is still open at its location at 29 South Main Street with the same hours. It is only open on one side now.

The co-op could not afford to keep both sides open, so they closed the side towards the Pharmacy and moved everything into one side. All the artists have plenty of space for the collection of their fineries. The artists and what they specialize in are as follows: Janice Lyle, Fiber Artist, Randy Melquist, Glass Art, Donna Anderson, Jewelry Designer, Marilyn Dunkle, Watercolors, Evelyn McNeal, Oils, Melody Mead, Acrylics, Bill Simbeck, Photographer, Shirley Corelli, Handmade scented candles, soaps, etc, Leon Edmiston, Intersia, Jenelle Johnson, Furniture Restoration, Nancy Edmiston, Baker, Sandy Droney, Fiber Artist, Bruce Melquist, Wood Turning, Paul Yourschisin, Scroll Saw Art, Sue Curtain, Exceptional Cook, Cathy Peterson, Fiber Artist.

The co-op is always looking for new artists. Applications and the bylaws of the co-op are available. Presently they are looking for a woodworker, potter, glassware artist, leathersmith or perhaps ceramic artist. The April raffle is a hand-painted pitcher painted by Marilyn Dunkle, full of Easter candy and a stuffed bunny. The shop is open Wednesday-Friday from 11 a.m. 6 pm., Saturday 9 a.m. 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
