To those who came and those who couldn’t make it tonight but who messaged me your thoughts and ideas, thank you!Your feedback and ideas are so helpful! If you missed the meeting but want to learn more or be involved please message me, this is going to be such a great opportunity for the kids and we can use all the help we can get to make it a truly wonderful experience!
Also: Does anyone happen to collect bottle caps? Willing to share? We have some mural projects planned and already have collected a couple thousand (from friends and neighbors!) but need more - help us out?!
Friends - Please save your bottle caps! We will use them for garden art and other mural projects! Also if you have old canning lids (the flat round part that only seals once) we can use those too - thank you so much!
