Holland Theatre Weaving Helps Fund Special Olympics

A weaving by RTC Services client Morgan Huffer portraying the Holland Theatre has found a home at the theater itself while also raising money for Special Olympics.

Huffer is a longtime Holland volunteer and Special Olympics participant. She created the weaving for an auction of art by clients of RTC, a local nonprofit that promotes employment, community connections, and independence in life for people with disabilities. The purchaser donated the art back, and Morgan offered the piece to the theater. As a thank you, Holland staff donated $200 to Logan County Special Olympics.

We appreciate Morgan’s faithful service at the theater and look forward to seeing her art every day in our ticket office,” said board member Jason Vogel.

Greg Titus, the theater’s executive director, is pictured presenting the check to Rose Canter, Special Olympics and recreation coordinator for the Logan County Board of Disabilities, with Vogel at left and Huffer holding her artwork.

RTC clients have an opportunity to learn skills like weaving through The STUDIO: RTC’s Art Connection, an art-centered day program.
