Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in workshops or brought in panels to donate, especially the ones that Karen Christ brought all the way from Dunsmuir. It’s because of your hard work that we are able to keep this program going year after year. This is our 11th year! A special thank you to our amazing Barbara Kelberlau and Diane Kobal, who not only completed 7 panels each, but came out to help hang the display!
