The Jefferson County Arts Council staged its first annual Artober event at Happy Retreat from October 1 through October 17. Artists of all kind – painters, sculptors, wood workers, musicians, poets, photographers, writers and even comedians —displayed their talents in rooms throughout the house. ArtOber , which was free to the public, was Happy Retreat’s introduction to the community. Over 150 people attended the opening night.
