AND we have an added treat, at 6:00 p.m. we will enjoy a performance of Plastik, an 11 minute pieceby dancers from the Rainbow Dance Company including our own Ellie Meynardie. As you can guess their work fits right in with our theme of creative use of items that are recycled or non-recyclable to make art! Everything is free and requires no pre-registration.
