I just wanted to share some thoughts (and pictures) with you all about this past weekend.
First off, THANK YOU! Thank you to the teens, their parents, and anyone who made it possible for Team Project Leaders Silvie, Lily, Nitara, Skye, Daniel, Kieran, and Marvellous, to be present at the trainings, and 3 days of weaving. I am so proud of all the hard work that each one of the teens put in over the course of several weeks to make this project so successful.
Of course, we must all applaud Denise Tennen, the artist, who put many hours into the training, design, and executing this project. Under her supervision and guidance, we now have a beautifully weaved fence that so many will remember as something so special in this community. Thank you!
To Jessica Kopp who has supported this project from it's initial idea to now her asking, "how do we do more of this?" Thank you for volunteering your time to make this this community of students, families, and supporters, a great place to live, work, and play!
