“Bear Your Heart for Art” contest

The residents of the 29 Wesley Living communities participated in the “Bear Your Heart for Art” contest.

Each community was given a supply of blank bears and fabric markers. They residents of each community divided into teams to decorate the bears. Each community selected one bear to represent the community in the Wesley Living wide judging.

The judges were so impressed with the entries, they selected “Judges Selection” bears as an honorable mention.

Our community Wesley at Martin in Martin, TN was judged to be the Grand Prize winner. They will receive a catered awards dinner from the Foundation and an artwork trophy acknowledging their accomplishment.
