  • The 2014 Maple Leaf Festival will have a Precious look.
    The 48th Annual Maple Leaf Festival planning committee has announced the winning artwork for the festival is by Crystal Manning, Precious Moments graphic artist.
     Artists, students and local residents were asked to submit work to represent this year’s theme “Crossroads of America.” This artwork will be used to promote the annual city celebration set for Oct. 11-18 in Carthage.
    “On behalf of Samuel J. Butcher, his family, and all of our employees it is an honor to learn that this Precious Moments design was chosen as the 2014 Maple Leaf Festival official artwork,” said Terri Heckmaster,  Precious Moments Supporting Foundation President. “It is especially exciting to us in this, the Precious Moments Chapel’s 25th anniversary year, that artist Crystal Manning’s design utilizing Mr. Butcher’s Precious Moments artwork was selected.”
    Manning submitted a design using artwork created by the founder of Precious Moments, Samuel J. Butcher, portraying a young man and lady traveling Route 66 through Carthage, set against a background of the Jasper County Courthouse and the state of Missouri.
