Art in Sheboygan County to benefit Meals On Wheels

SHEBOYGAN – Metal 3-foot and 5-foot embellished forks are popping up all around Sheboygan County.

These 31 artistic creations were painted by artists of all ages and abilities in support of Meals On Wheels of Sheboygan County in promotion of its new fundraising gala, June-A-Palooza, being held 3-10 p.m. June 22 at Christopher Farm & Gardens in Sheboygan.

“An 8-foot fork hangs in our lobby and has become the symbol for Meals On Wheels of Sheboygan County. The original fork creations that are around town represent who we serve, a diverse group of individuals who strive to be inde- pendent and remain in their own homes,” said Kelly Heyn, director of Meals On Wheels of Sheboygan County.

The forks will be on display until June 20, when they begin to make their way to Christopher Gardens. Some of the spots they can be found in Sheboygan include Trattoria Stefano, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Nest, Lakeland Au- tomotive, Yacht Club, Highland House, Sheboygan Chamber of Commerce and Field to Fork. In Plymouth the artistic creations can be found at the Plymouth Arts Center, Sargento and Chuck Van Horn Dodge. They can also be found at Depkes, B & B Ford, and Wally’s Cake Studio in Sheboygan Falls and The Victorian Village in Elkhart Lake. For a complete listing of locations visit

On June 22, the forks will be on display at Christopher Farm & Gardens, a private 440 acre botanical garden on the western shore of Lake Michigan. Guests at June-A-Palooza will be able to bid on these one-ofa kind indoor/outdoor fork sculptures as part of a silent auction. All proceeds will go to support the mission of Meals On Wheels, to enhance the quality of independent living through affordable, nutritious home-delivered and home-cooked meals with caring social interaction.

At the event June-A-Palooza co-chairs, Jay W. Christopher and Laura Stayer, will select their favorite fork and award the artist the ‘Royal June-A-Palooza’ prize and $500.

June-A-Palooza is an altruistic gala like no other, filled with food, fun and frolic for adults. Guests can take a ride in a hot air balloon, gondola and train. Or they can experience a wine-tasting with nationally renowned sommelier Jaclyn Stuart and be able to stroll through picturesque gardens while enjoying some of Sheboygan County’s finest foods, beverages and entertainment. An ‘Aztec Fire Dance’ will be held at sunset in the amphitheater to help conclude the day’s excursion.

General admission tickets are $100 and a full-access pass is $150. For more information and to purchase tickets visit or call 920- 451-7011.
