Left to right, Billy Brisley, Christa Nebbia, Jo Ann Stratakos, Julianne Duick and Mary Jane Malinoski warmed up a winter's chilly night with a little wine, good food and companionship at MudWorks Pottery's first Christmas party. The theme was "Winter in the Poconos." Local artists had some of their winter scenes on display and visitors could vote for their favorite. Owner, Jo Ann Stratakos, says the next contest will be in August with a theme of "It's Raining Cats and Dogs." A portion of the proceeds will go to local rescue center and there will be an opportunity to adopt a pet. Mudworks is located on Rt. 115, Mt. Effort.
