The Frozen Frontier

The Gathering Place served as a warm-up center, food court, and a recreational center. We had something for all ages. A special thanks to Joe and Dori Waters for their wonderful addition of Mr. Ed, to Anne Armezzani, our events chair, and to all our volunteers, especially Erin Kenny and Stacy Frank who both jumped right into work.

The Twice-Admired Emporium

We had an outstanding day, good food, drink, music, excellent vendors, and wonderful buys.

Thank you to our committed volunteers who put in so many hours, the Summit University students, Bob McMinn for the wonderful display that greeted our guests, Rev. Bill Carter and his bassist for the outstanding music.

We’ve begun planning for next year, so stay tuned.
