Created by artist and YLC tutor Pam Dillon (right), this work of art commemorates the 35th anniversary of the Yamaska Literacy Council.
The art was launched as part of YLC’s launch, lunch and learning celebration on April 14th. Guests were treated to a digital presentation of the making of the piece, created and presented by Kayla Soule.
In Pam’s words..
Birthdays and milestones are worth celebrating. With the 35th Anniversary of YLC, I wanted to participate and tip my hat to the Council. Why not a piece of art to commemorate YLC. It has been a lovely project for me, and was fun to do. In a country filled with trees, and leaves, and fruit, and shelter, trees symbolize growth and renewal. I hope my art piece makes people think about the Council, and all the ways it helps us grow, renew, and make a difference.
