For Good

Celebrate the holidays at new Mt. Healthy maker space

Community members gathered for last year's ornament swap in Mt. Healthy.


If you’re looking for a day of unique activities and holiday cheer, Mt. Healthy businesses and community members are teaming up to make your Saturday a bit merrier.
 
Here is what the community has in store for Dec. 10: “We see that not only does Mt. Healthy have a lot of potential, but the neighborhood already has a lot to offer,” said Karen Arnett, Mt. Healthy Renaissance Project’s board president. “We see the community evolving by drawing new residents as more folks learn about the charms of the neighborhood and the values in housing.”
 
Some of that neighborhood charm comes from longstanding businesses like Hilltop Glass & Mirror, which hosted an open house this past October for its new maker space, Hilltop Glass Creations. The new space allows community members and visitors alike the opportunity to gather together, take classes, learn something new and be creative.
 
“It’s a bright spot of light in our business district — hopefully one of many to come,” Arnett said.
 
For Cindy Jurcenko, store and maker space owner, Hilltop Glass Creations allows her the chance to meet diverse groups of individuals.
 
“People from all walks of life have visited,” Jurcenko said. “I have met several different senior center stained glass members, local school teachers, a Girl Scouts’ leader, a dentist, contractors and remodelers and other small business owners.”
 
And she plans to meet even more individuals Saturday, as “Painting on Glass,” “Fused Glass” and “Stained Glass” opportunities for ornament-making will bring the crafty and the curious together.
 
“Everyone who stops in is thrilled to see a new storefront in town,” Jurcenko said. “We are going to be a great new community gathering spot. I couldn't be happier.”
