     The Advanced Art Class of John Marshall High School, taught by Sally Gaughenbaugh, recently presented several pieces of the groupís artwork to the Cockayne Committee to be displayed and offered for sale at the Mothersís Day Dinner planned as a fundraising event on May 9, 2004.

     The students toured the house late last year and several photos were taken of the various rooms. Students then selected something from the photos which they then reproduced for the committee. Nearly 20 paintings, ranging from acrylics to pencil drawings, were presented. Sally Gaughenbaugh also presented her own original painting, which was promptly purchased by her husband, Ray, proceeds donated to the Committee. In addition to the paintings, John Marshall teacher Mike Derrow presented a piece of pottery he had crafted for the Motherís Day Dinner Silent Auction.
