Lock Haven University held its 18th annual student pottery sale on Dec. 12 and 13 in the LHU Art Annex, featuring the works of nine LHU students and two local ceramic artists. The proceeds from the sale went to the local non-profit H.E.L.P. (Hardship Emergency Loan Program) for Pets, which provides no-interest loans to individuals who have a pet that needs a medical procedure.
