With our Mission Statement guiding us, Phelps Mill Country has sponsored
several art education programs in the Otter Tail County Public Schools. In
2000, as a direct result of the Festival successful years, we gave over$10,000
to the area schools to promote art education. This was done, working with the
school’s art department and COMPASS, a non-profit art education
organization, dedicated to connecting artists with you to further art education.
The school’s art teacher picked the artist according to their needs and when a
question came up about the supplies needed, we sent additional monies to
cover the supply costs.
In February of 2006, Phelps Mill Country sponsored Gary Harbo in 10 area
public schools. He has been a Festival exhibitor for the past 20 years. His art
lesson of an animal character teaches students that drawing can be fun and
easy. Harbo’s stay in our area was well received and a rewarding experience
for the students, teachers and parents. Over the years Phelps Mill Country has
donated money to various projects in Otter Tail County and to the park
improvement plans: the remodeling of the picnic shelters, contributing $5,000
to improve the structure of the Mill, additional trees when needed, and the
donation of the new picnic tables with the cooperation of Boy Scout Troop 305
for an Eagle Scout project. In 2013, an additional $2,000 was donated to the
Phelps Mill Park fund In March, 2011, the Landmark Center of Henning, along
with financial support from Phelps Mill, sponsored Artist in Residence Aldo
Moroni. During his month at the Landmark, he worked with nearly 700
students from four area schools, including Henning, Underwood, New York
Mills, and Battle Lake making clay sculptures. These clay towers soon made
up a little city on the front lawn on the Landmark Center. This city of towers
remained on display until mid-July of 2011.
We have sponsored the Phelps Mill Festival, now in its 30th year to provide
funding to accomplish our mission goals. Because of the existence and the
support of the Festival, many of our area non-profit groups can raise the
funding needed for their community and projects. Thank you to all who
volunteer and participate to make this Festival successful and fun for the whole
