We are indebted once again for a beautiful cover for The Kettle 2012. The cover was designed and painted by Hot Springs’ watercolorist Richard Stephens. Shelby Kay Williams was the model for the child who is drawing “stick family members” on the kettle. Shelby is the daughter of Chad and Julie Williams and the granddaughter of Stevie Spargo, Will and Faye Williams, and Don and Charla Boughamer, all of Garland County.
The Melting Pot depends primarily upon Corporate Memberships each year to fund publishing The Kettle. Corporate members are: Simmons 1st Bank of Hot Springs, Seiz Sign Company, Hot Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau, City Plumbing Heating & Air, and National Park Community College Foundation.
