Marti honored

Judi Marti, founder and arts education coordinator of the Adams County Arts Council, was honored on the occasion of her retirement for her 27 years of service at a gathering Aug. 8 in the main gallery of the council, 125 S. Washington St., Gettysburg. Presenting a Certificate of Recognition from Adams County were county Commissioners Marty Qually and Jim Martin, flanking Marti.

Anyone familiar with the history of the Adams County Arts Council knows Judy Marti.

A folk musician and farmer by trade, Marti was a founding board member of the arts council nearly 30 years ago. She was honored by friends and colleagues Thursday evening for her vision and her service to the organization, helping to make quality arts education a reality for Adams Countians of all ages.
