Thanks to all who attended a busy week of summer activities

Volunteers gathered together at the future home of the Museum to remove

5 bags of weeds

during Weeding the Grounds

before Festa Italiana

at which volunteers spoke with 400 people about the Museum and

56 people

checked in at our table! Thanks to those that came by!

Meanwhile, we also attended the annual summer reunionof the Clarence Darrow Homes alumni

13 years after demolition.
