Pottery painting store open in Boardman

Canfield’s Eva Popovec opened The Art Caf , a contemporary pottery painting studio located at the Southern Park Mall on Sept. 22. The Art Caf Studio provides instruction on painting and placing designs on unfinished pottery and creating unique, one-of-a-kind Mosaic pieces. The studio has a large inventory of pre-fired pottery, including a large selection of non-toxic glazes and all of the brushes, sponges and supplies needed to finish a guest’s project.

Themed parties for birthdays, anniversaries, bridal and baby showers, scout groups, school field trips or ladies night out are also offered. The semi-private party area can accommodate up to 20 guests.

The Art Caf Studio is introducing a series of “Christmas Camps” during the upcoming holiday season to assist children in creating age-appropriate projects providing parents an opportunity to shop without their children. For more information, contact Popovec at 330-519-5606 or popovecs@zoominternet.net.

Canfield alumni named Distinguished Military grad

Five Xavier University ROTC Cadets of the All For One Battalion rank were in the top 20 percent in the nation among 5,592 Cadets, earning recognition as Distinguished Military Graduates.

Among those five was Alexis Thorne of Canfield, ranked No. 685. The daughter of William and Debra Thorne, Alexis is majoring in political science. She also achieved an overall Excellent Rating in the Leadership Development Assessment Course at Ft. Lewis this past summer.

Yearly, the U.S. Army Cadet Command establishes a National Order of Merit List (OML) for all Cadets to be commissioned in that fiscal year. The score is based on grade point average, Army physical fitness test scores, and Leadership Development and Assessment testing. This OML score helps determine to which branch of the Army Cadets will be commissioned, their selection for active or reserve duty or other benefits such as Law or Medical school, and their selection for awards and recognition.

In order to be designated Distinguished Military Graduate, Cadets must place in the top 20 percent of all cadets.
