11-6-21: Joan Clarke of Santa’s Market and local vendor Kristi Tillman of Kreative Menagerie

This week on The Rise & Thrive OSJ Radio Hour, Saturday morning at 9:05AM on KZLS The Eagle 1640AM. In studio: we are getting into the full swing of the holiday season! In studio with us, co- founder Joan Clarke of Santa’s Market.After losing her husband to Alzheimer’s in 2007, she channeled her love of craft shows into a way to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. She works tirelessly year round to provide a wonderful fundraiser for this terrible disease along with co-founders, Megan Clark-Nye and Molly Nye.

Also in studio this Saturday is a local vendor, Kristi Tillman. Kristi is the passionate, creative, driving force behind Kreative Menagerie, a small business in Elk City, OK, that focuses on laser-cut wood art and
laser-engraved gifts. She is a quilter, a stained glass artist, a painter, and a graphic artist with what her husband affectionately refers to as “Art ADHD”.
Kreative Menagerie will be raising money for the fight against Alzheimer’s at Santa Market this year on November 19th and 20th from 9am until 4pm at the State Fair Park in the Pavilion and Centennial buildings. 100% of all monies raised will be donated to Alzheimer’s research at the Santa Market in memory of Billy Tillman, Tom Clark and anyone that has been touched by this horrible disease.
