GRANVILLE, OHIO (September 8, 2021) The Licking Park District (LPD) held a dedication ceremony on August 27th honoring long time volunteer, Rosanna Moore. Rosanna’s generous contribution paid for construction of the shelter at the Lobdell Disc Golf Course in Alexandria. She cared about the Licking Park District and volunteered many hours to make the parks a better place to visit and enjoy.
Rosanna was an avid wood carver/sculptor for over 60 years and was instrumental in organizing the Land of Legend Woodcarvers. She won numerous awards at wood carving shows and art exhibits.
Rosanna taught school in Akron, Alexandria, Pataskala, and Watkins Memorial Junior and Senior High Schools, and started the art program at Southwest Licking Schools in 1961. She was active with many organizations including the Licking Park District, Dawes Arboretum, Licking County Art Association and the Zanesville Art Center.
A number of people from the Land of Legend Woodcarvers attended the dedication and shared fond memories of spending time with Rosanna. She taught numerous woodcarvers the basics and tutored them for many years. In addition, one of her art students recalled how she mentored her at Southwest Licking and always encouraged her to ‘figure it out.’
Rosanna, a very talented carver, sculpted the first block in row 3 of the above collage. The exhibit is proudly displayed at the LPD office at Infirmary Mound Park..
