The crowds were out at Matthews Alive, the annual Labor Day weekend family arts and crafts festival in down- town Matthews that draws more than 200,000 attendees each year and con- tinues to grow. Independence High School, Blessed Assurance and the Matthews-Mint Hill Indian Guides marched in the parade. Local potter Althea Meade-Hadjuk was one of the featured artists in the Hendrick Arts and Crafts Pavilion, and artist Bar- bara Travell’s work was exhibited in the new McDowell Arts Center.
