‘GRAN’ PRIDE – Jan DeKock of Henderson hangs portraits she painted of her grandsons, Charlie Baltzegar, 4 months, left, and Alex Baltzegar, 2, in the lobby area of the Civic Center of Vance-Granville Community College. DeKock and the other students in the VGCC Continuing Education portrait painting class have 27 of their works on display each weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Dec. 17, and the public is invited to stop by and see the portraits. The next 10-week portrait class, taught by Leslie Johnson of Oxford, will begin March 7 on VGCC’s main campus.
