The committee members from out of town are starting to arrive. Jim Hudson, Ariel Franklin-Hudson, Naomi Fisher, Pat Molloy, and Jim Mann arrived at the clubhouse this afternoon.


We were running out of crates so we did some digging at the back of the clubhouse to try to find some crates we could empty and use.

Today's work session was amazing, and accomplished tons of stuff. Some really wonderful work got done on the Mended Drum decorations by our creative volunteers. (I didn't take pictures because I wanted it to be a surprise.) The Drum will definitely be an interesting space. Toward the end of the evening, Geri Sullivan arrived triumphantly with a) Bobbi Armbruster, who she'd picked up at the airport, and b) the first hot-off-the-presses copy of our gorgeous Souvenir Book.

More work tomorrow. We'll continue to churn out signs, finish the gizmos, finish up some packing, begin truck-loading, and probably a whole bunch of other stuff. If you're in the Boston area, come on by and join the fun.

Two new projects have started up...
