Posted on March 6, 2013 at 12:00 a.m.

NAPPANEE — The theme of art will weave through many of the events at Nappanee’s Second Saturdays this Saturday, March 9.

The first Nappanee Souper Bowl benefit for Family Christian Development Center will be hosted by the Coppes Commons Upper Room from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Pottery bowls made by NorthWood High School students will be available for $15 to fill with all-you-can-eat soup. Culinary Mill, Nappanee Bakery and The Teapot will provide the soup and bowls may be taken home after the event.

All proceeds from the Souper Bowl will go to the FCDC to help families in need in the Wa-Nee Community School District.

High school students from around the county will also be at Coppes Commons, as they aid professional artist Jeff Stillson to repaint and restore area quilt murals.

Stillson is the creator of countywide quilt murals displayed each year to reflect and promote the Quilt Gardens.

Children will also have opportunities to get involved with the arts.

Kids age 5 to 12 can paint their own quilt patterns on blocks of wood that will be displayed inside Coppes Commons until April 26.

Children of all ages are also invited to celebrate March Madness at the Nappanee Public Library. Between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., kids will be able to decorate their own basketball hoops in preparation for the tournament.

Other events at this weekend’s Second Saturdays include a free movie for kids and an Easter egg hunt.

Nappanee Movie Theater will offer free screenings of the movie “Hop” at both 1 p.m. and 3:15 p.m.

The Easter egg hunt for children 12 and younger will begin at 10 a.m. Eggs will be hidden throughout local businesses and participants can pick up maps from Kountry Cabinets. The hunt will run until 2 p.m.
