Banners — so beloved in East County to advertise events, once again were used effectively in front of the Lakeside VFW post to announce the Women’s Club of Lakeside’s 20th annual Children’s Art Show.
Six-year-old first-grader Adah Griseshaber from Barona Indian Charter School used paint, foam forms and markers to create her inventive chicken picture.

Her dad, Steve Grieshaber, said the art show is great because “it sure makes all the kids excited to see their art work.”

Banners — so beloved in East County to advertise events, once again were used effectively in front of the Lakeside VFW post to announce the Women’s Club of Lakeside’s 20th annual Children’s Art Show.

Her dad, Steve Grieshaber, said the art show is great because “it sure makes all the kids excited to see their art work.”

Steve pointed out that at home Adah typically does do artwork, but that she usually turns her masterpieces over to his wife.
Women’s Club of Lakeside’s president, Carolyn Bass, shared that last year’s show had around 820 pieces, and that the first place winner, Delenn Brenn, an eighth-grader from River Valley Charter, had her photo grace the cover of the women’s club’s magazine Californian Clubwoman.
Members of an art guild judge the pieces.

Bass explained that this year’s two-day event included walking field trips from close-by Lindo Park and Lemon Crest schools on Feb. 2, and open viewing of the artwork, accompanied with performances by the kids on Feb 3, which was also Parent Day. The Women’s Club members, attired in red shirts, were readily available to help with orchestrating the event.

The history of the Children’s Art Show started with Lakeside’s Olde Community Church on Maine Street. This is the third year the show has been held at the VFW hall. The show included participants from all of the Lakeside schools, Barona Indian Charter School and the high schools.

Bass also highlighted that the Women’s Club will also be putting together their 28th annual Quilt Show & Boutique at the VFW post on March 8 and 9.

Getting back to Adah — her smile says it all — happy and proud to show off her artistic side, while giving thanks to the Women’s Club of Lakeside for “putting on the show.”
