March 2015

Dear Readers,

Thanks to member support, we took the month of January to re-imagine our gift shop/ gallery/ museum space. We painted the walls red and re-arranged our gift shop and seating area. Our museum cases will soon be refreshed one by one and brought up-to-date.

In February, we re-opened on Groundhog’s Day and on Valentine’s Day we had our Annual Sweetheart Ball. This year the Ball was hosted by our friends at The Baymont Inn with great music, great food and our silent auction. Thank you to all our sponsors, artists, contributors and attendees!
