SLOTS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PAINTING EVENT FEB. 13
A few slots remain for the Social Canvas To Go painting event Wednesday, Feb. 13, beginning at 6 p.m. in the LPN banquet room. The event will be hosted by The Social Canvas, a Waukee business owned by Terry and Linda Laughery of Guthrie Center.

In a group setting, an artist will guide participants step-by-step through replicating the night's featured painting. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the featured painting will be the “Love Tree.” If two people want to collaborate on a single painting split on two canvases, the artist will show how to make that possible. 

Participants will be able to purchase food and drink from The Links before, during and after the event. Links specials for those participating in the Social Canvas event will include $1 off all appetizers and flat bread pizzas, $1.50 draw beer, $2.50 well drinks and $3 glasses of house wine.
