The Open House was a fantastic success! We had 162 visitors sign the guestbook. It was a non-stop whirlwind. Once the action started, we were so busy that we didn’t have a chance to take pictures. :)

Thanks to everyone who came, especially Nancy and Bob, who have never missed an Open House. Thank you Vilija for face painting on Sunday. Thank you Charmaine and Perry. And thank you Suzanne the Butterfly Lady for visiting!
