Lions Club offers covered bridge prints

Brown County’s covered bridges have long been a symbol of the county’s history. Still standing in the county are the Brown Bridge, Bethel-New Hope Bridge, North Pole Bridge, George Miller Bridge and McCafferty Bridge.

The Georgetown Lions Club commissioned renowned artist Skip Werline to paint each of the remaining bridges in the early 2000’s. A limited number of prints are still available for sale along with matching Christmas tree ornaments.

“Many people have bought these prints to give to loved ones as Christmas gifts over the years,” said Ray Becraft, Lions Club member. “We still have a limited supply left for sale.”

This collection includes the Eagle Creek Bridge which was washed away in the 1997 flood.

Money raised from the sale of these prints goes back to the community, according to member Sarah Watson.

“There are a number of businesses in the area who will frame the prints for you for a charge,” said Watson. “We no longer offer framing, so if you want it framed as a gift you need purchase one soon.”

The prints for purchase are located at the office of the The News Democrat and Ripley Bee at 111 E. State Street in Georgetown. Prints are $30 and the ornaments $5. The office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The club can only take cash or checks for the prints. Framed prints may also be viewed on the wall at the Country Inn in Georgetown and other various businesses throughout the county.
