Frog Up!!! Scholarship Fundraiser


Mark Twain’s short story, “Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” is the inspiration for the CNCH scholarship fundraiser. Twain said, “It certainly had a wide celebrity…but I was aware that it was only the frog that was celebrated.

Friday evening, in tandem with “An Evening with Mark Twain” the Lilypad Gallery opens with a show of “Cakewalk Pollywogs”, a collection of your fancy froggies. These art frogs can be made using any technique, any fiber. More athletically inclined frogs are encouraged to compete in our second category: “Larry the Leaper”. Vaulting, “Leaper” contestants need to be 3 pounces in weight and have a tennis ball-sized body. These top gallants will be launched by trebuchet into a “frog pond”

Your donated fiber frogs will make this truly an evening to remember!

Vote for your favorites and enter to win them with tickets purchased at registration ( also available at the event)..Frogs with the most ticket “votes” will win the Golden Kermie Award.

Please mail your frogs to Janice Johnson, 25000 Little John Lane, Pioneer, CA 95666
