A group of Seagrove potters took half a day away from their clay work to spruce up the grounds around the Luck's cannery Monday. The old cannery is being used to house Celebration of Seagrove Potters Nov. 22 and 23.
On a chilly Monday morning, chainsaws, string trimmers and leaf blowers buzzed as potters loaded flatbed trucks with debris and clippings from the area around the back parking lot. For four or five hours, potters put down their pottery tools and became rakers, push-broomers, shovelers, loppers, drivers, measurers, equipment movers, bathroom inspectors and mowers in preparing for the upcoming show. There was talk of another clean up day being scheduled soon.
The guy cutting into the side of the building in the photo below is Larry Harvel of Atkinson Construction in Seagrove and is cutting a new door into the warehouse where the show will be.
