Frain says Boat US raised the boat the same day and towed it to Salt Creek. quick actions. early, I was able to prevent a major fuel spill in the marina, he says. Just two days prior, Gulfport Police noticed a boat listing and boarded the vessel to see if there was anyone on to raise the former houseboat and tow it into the marina. Gulfport staff also called the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) check for a fuel spill. Once all the agencies arrived and prepared to raise the boat, the boat owner showed up and refused assistance. He attempted instead to pump out the partially sinking vessel with the help of a friend, but his attempts failed and the boat sunk. From what I understand, and I dont know if this is the truth, it was being salvaged for usable parts when it sank, Frain says of the boat, which still remains on the bottom of Boca Ciega Bay. Gulfport has marked the location with a buoy as a warning to other boaters. The city will monitor the owners actions, and take appropriate action as warranted, Gulfport City Manager Jim OReilly told the Gabber.

Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 5 Hero, from front pagewest than usual. Russ Matter decided to enter the Recycle Regatta, and he headed down to the beach a few hours before the event. Cindy Dabill and Cindy Bayes had other plans, but their son, Steve, wanted to go Beach. If any of those things had happened differently, it might have cost a threeyear-old boy his life at Saturdays Aquamania. Gleana, 11, was in the water near other kids when he noticed a younger moving. A few older boys were closer but didnt want to walk through the sea grass, so Gleana went to the boy and rolled him over. I went to go get him and an adult came, he said. Thats when Matter stepped in. He pulled the boy out of the water and brought him to the beach, where Dabill and Bayes a paramedic and RN, respectively checked his vitals. The child had no pulse and wasnt breathing, so they began twoperson CPR. Gleanas mother, Anna, called 911. The 911 operator wanted a cross street, but the St. Petersburg resident wasnt sure, so she asked the operator to tell the responders she was west of the Casino. Gulfport Fire Department was in the parking lot in case of an emergency, but because of the crowds, couldnt hear shouts for help. The place was packed, Bayes said. Once the 911 operator understood where the boy was on the beach, she took over from Dabill and Bayes. By the time they loaded the child onto the ambulance, paramedics say he was conscious and recognized his babysitter. First responders brought the boy to All Childrens Hospital. He was released Sunday. His mother has asked that the media disclose neither her identity nor her sons. The stars aligned, Fire Chief Jim Marenkovic said of the four people who helped save the boy. Marenkovic, along with Gulfport City Council, will recognize Adam Gleana, Cindy Bayes and Cindy Dabill at Tuesdays 7 p.m. council meeting. Marenkovic tells the Gabber he would like to honor Matter as well, but as of press time, had not heard back from him. Contact Cathy Salustri at

Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 9 Clam Bayou, Take Two Gulfport City Council voted unanimously, at Ward One Councilman Dan Liedtkes suggestion, to delay any decisions about Clam Bayou, including whether or not to pay a consultant just over $72,000 to perform a study of Clam Bayou, including a title search and historic creating a management plan for the bayou. City staff created a request for of creating such a plan. Only one company responded to the RFQ, which some council members criticized as too restrictive. A member of council at the time we discussed this thought it would involvement with the city of Gulfport or other parties associated with Gulfport, Mayor Sam Henderson said. This request, made by former Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon, meant that any company that worked with any agency that worked with Gulfport could not bid on the project. Such agencies include the state, the state water management districts, and Gulfport businesses, Tampa Bay Estuary Program, Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, Gulfport residents and city staff. I am a little concerned that we did only get one bid back, Ward One Councilman Dan Liedtke said. Ward Three Councilman Yolanda Roman agreed. Its just not a smart idea not to have comparables, she said. Ward Four Councilman Michael Fridovich said he would like to put the job out to bid again and Vice Mayor Christine Brown said she would like to extend the bidding in a less restrictive way. Brown encouraged council to still perform a title search, which would establish legal ownership of the land under the water in Clam Bayou. Any land belonging to private property owners would not legally be eligible for work paid for with government funds, according to City Attorney Andy Salzman. While council tabled the decision meaning they took no action at Tuesday nights council meeting they did discuss how to proceed in a way that would not cost taxpayers $72,000 for preliminary steps. The mayor suggested that the city budget money for baseline sampling for the water and the sediment and monitoring after the city completes the separate 49th Street stormwater If were going to spend $72,000, Id rather spend it getting a baseline sampling plan before the 49th Street project is complete and then do a round of sampling after the completion to measure our progress, he said.

10 Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 Letters When Race is Irrelevant Dear Editor: I'd like to comment on Cathy Salustri's article "Gulfport Police Nab Bike Thieves", (June 5, 2014 edition). She writes "Gulfport Police have arrested two white men..." The race of the victims are not stated. Unless the crime was racially motivated it is irrelevant what the race of these men were.David ShinerMany Thanks to Senior Center Volunteers Dear Editor: The Gulfport Multipurpose Senior Center Foundation wishes to thank Ms. Anne Pemberton and Ms. Lynn DiVenuti for their many hours of volunteer services to the organization.

Her insight into hardware, software, internal and external systems added to the quality of the students' learning experience. It was enhanced in her presence because of her competent delivery of information, and willingness to give one-on-one assistance when needed. Thank you Anne! Ms. DiVenutis volunteer efforts as the treasurer for the foundations board of directors were equally impressive. Last November Lynn stepped up without hesitation when health issues forced the foundations three months. Lynn made sure the bookkeeping chores were done which allowed all other day-to-day foundation work to move forward without delay. Ms. DiVenuti was instrumental in developing the budget, helped to oversee operations of the snack bar and willingly helped plan fundraising events for 2014. Her optimism and eagerness for the foundations mission and its continued success will be sorely missed.

22 Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 Everyday Cheap$kateBy Mary HuntTurn Your Junk into Cash in a Weekend The Wall Street Journal has estimated the annual yield from garage sales to be around $2 billion. Isnt it about time for you to claim your share of that jackpot? Its spring and I cant think of a better time to clean out the drawers, closets and disaster areas that your family members are always complaining about. You need to turn that clutter into cash. choose the dates. Check all kinds of calendars to make sure your sale wont hit the same weekend as a community event, holiday weekend or Aunt Ethels 80th birthday party. Assume that no matter what time of day you select to open your sale, people will show up at 6 a.m. Thats just the way it is, so be prepared. Those early birds are the pros, so be ready. Next, choose the location and remember that a tidy sales area will be key to your success. And dont forget to check local ordinances. Some cities require a permit to hold driveway probably wont attract the kind of customers youre looking for. Get your items ready for sale. Make sure everything is as clean as humanly possible. Organize things by category with clothes in one area, toys in another, housewares displayed together and so forth. Know what you have as well. Youll or baby furniture. Theyre not going to look through your things, but they will expect you to know exactly what you have and where it is. You cannot be too prepared. In fact, every minute you spend ahead of time in making sure your sale is wellorganized and attractive will put more dollars in your pocket. To make the most of every effort you expend, I highly recommend a fabulous book -Garage Sale Superstar. Its an easy read and the author, Eric Michael, will teach you in short order how to make the most money possible at your event, so listen to him. Do exactly what he says and you will at least double your take without increasing your effort. Thats the thing about doing things right from the start. Now youre ready to inform the world. The time and effort you spend on advertising will pay off big. is a great place to post you will have available. Antiques and baby items typically bring buyers in droves. Dont forget to hang those attractive signs around your neighborhood and make sure to write an ad for the local newspaper that will leave people salivating. Finally, price your junk ... I mean, treasures. Remember that you are not competing with Target. Shoppers are looking for bargains, so determine your best price and add a bit to leave room for haggling. There are two schools of thought when it comes to pricing items. The chaotic once buyers begin scouring through all of your things. Just be prepared for shoppers to bargain down the price, even if you consider your prices to be the rock bottom. Its part of the tag-sale culture. The second method suggests that sales often work best when you dont price things in advance. Wait to see what a customer offers you, which you may be surprised is more than you would ask. Even if you dont put a price tag on items, you should still have a general idea of how much each item is worth and the minimum amount youll accept. And dont be afraid to hold your ground. Seasoned salers just dont feel right about paying full price without any objection at all. On sale day, make sure you have an electrical outlet available so that buyers can test items to make sure theyre working. If you are one to go all out, having water available will be much appreciated and perhaps even keep people looking longer at what you have to offer. A great trick that will include the kids who show up with their parents bags. Small paper lunch bags work great for this. Fill them with small items like toys, stickers, wrapped candies -anything you have that would be fun for a child to open. And the fuller each bag is, the better. Seal the bags and then post a sign near your checkout area, Cents Each! After the sale, resist the urge to re-stash the leftovers. Instead, call your local charity to schedule a pickup.

Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 27 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. The Perils of Probate In an attempt to avoid probate when she dies, Mary decides to put her son's name on her two-hundredthousand dollar home. Mary recently was involved in the probate of her husband's estate when he died and Mary wanted to make sure that her son, Al, did not have to experience the same expensive procedure on her death. After the deed was recorded on the home, Al became a joint owner with his mother. Since Al is now legally recognized as a part owner of Mary's home, Mary no longer has total control of the real estate. In fact, Mary must get Al's consent and signature before she can list the home for sale, enter into a lease of the home or put a mortgage on the home. In addition, Mary runs homestead exemption which would then increase the amount of taxes on the home. Since Al is now a part owner of the home, his creditors could potentially make a claim against the home because it is now one of his assets. By giving Al a half-interest in the home, Mary has made a gift of onehundred-thousand dollars to Al. The Internal Revenue Service only allows individuals to make tax-free gifts of up to twelve thousand dollars per year. As a result, Mary is required to may have to pay gift taxes upon her death. In addition, if there is a mortgage and note on the home, each time Mary makes a mortgage payment, she is considered to be making a gift to Al. Mary could have avoided all of these potential problems. She could have retained the home only in her name and passed the home to Al under the State of Florida's Homestead Law which allows that one's solely owned homestead property goes directly to her child or children upon death. If Al inherits the home upon Mary's death, Al would then own the home at its "stepped-up basis." What that means is that Al's cost is only the fair market value of the home on the date of Mary's death. If Al were to then sell the home he would have little or no income taxes to pay because stepped-up basis in the home. On the other hand, if Mary deeds a one-half interest in her home to Al during her lifetime, Al's basis in the home would be what Mary paid for the home which could potentially be far less than today's market value. In this case, if Al sold the property, he likely taxes would have to be paid. All considered, Mary's desire to avoid probate expenses by deeding part of her home to Al during her lifetime could have some less than favorable consequences for both Mary and Al.

28 Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 By Holiday Mathis Saturn, the planet that rules paternal energy, is retrograde on of us down memory lane. The moon spends the morning in Capricorn, which Saturn rules, bringing the strongest fatherly focus of the day in the early hours before sailing like an expertly struck golf ball into the realm of Aquarius ready for games and socializing. Saturday opens the door to a new season, so get outside and enjoy. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). For now, its best to disregard your competition. Also disregard the limits of your ability. If youre aiming for a result thats within your skill level, know that it is too low to excite and motivate you. Ignore what you know about what you can do while you pay attention to what you would like to see yourself do. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A lack of awareness can be ruinous to relationships, especially new relationships that do not have the more reason to remember peoples names. Staying socially present and keen will pay off for you. Youll build rapport with someone who will enrich your future experience. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It may feel like youre playing a game of emotional chicken. You take a risk and reveal a part of who you are, and the other person does the same. How much to reveal? This is the million-dollar question, and with your discretion, taste and vulnerability, youll strike just the right balance in this regard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Its always easier to present to an audience you know. If youre in touch with their needs, wants, values, interests and situational pressures, youll let that information guide you. Unfortunately, its not always possible to know your audience, and when thats the case, all you can do is try your best to put yourself in their place. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The Zen master insists that there is no progress. Faith in progress is futile. The midweek brings the chance to take a break from accounting for the accumulation and direction of your efforts to feel the fullness of a moment. Being present is being happy. Those who help you stay in the moment will be your favorite people. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). This week shows you in an assertive mood. Youll feel emboldened to ask others for the change in their behavior youd no, and you wont be the least bit afraid to have a different opinion. You know yourself and stand in who you are. People will want to work and play with you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youll have a heightened awareness of time and the way you manage and join with it. In the planning stages of things, its necessary to send your mind ahead of you. However, once youve nailed a plan, the best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to become as fully present in the now moment as possible. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). and youll have good reason to do so this week. The bottom line is: The better you know your subject the better you will present it. Once you a bit of showmanship is all thats needed to make people sit up and pay attention. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everyone wants to be good at the task at hand, but not everyone is willing to be great at it -especially if the task is low on the glamour quotient. Thats what sets you apart this week. Each task you tackle, regardless of how small, you approach with the intention of excellence. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your projects go 95 percent right this week. As for the other 5 percent, you never blame others; you blame yourself. You do this not because its your fault, but because youre the only one you have control over. Youll learn more by holding yourself responsible, and of mind to learn all that you can. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just as expert investors recommend a diverse stock portfolio, you will become emotionally richer for placing your attention on a variety of interests -at least three. Becoming too embroiled in one venture is an easily avoided danger this week. If you feel yourself obsessing, quickly change your mental channel. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This week youll have the chance to spend time on that thing you do that increases your sense of peace, pleasure and beauty. This activity is misunderstood by overly practical that they do not understand efforts made for other reasons. Maybe you can educate them! This Week's Birthdays: The world will recognize your star quality this year, especially in July and September when youll be put in the spotlight for something you do beautifully. Unite your team and go forward with an August venture. A surprise will liven things up in October. Youll have to juggle the logistics, but the new way will be better. New powers of goal before the winter holidays, and youll show up strong with friends and family as you usher in 2015.

We'll send you some more buses to move them about and some lawyers for the children. Expect $1.4 billion. Strategy working. Expect Republicans to cave on amnesty for immigrants bill." but a very real problem for South Texas and for Tucson. Immigrants are packing the border and many of them are unaccompanied children. Total "arrests" from October to May, according to the Associated Press, are 148,000 in the South Texas area and 62,000 in Tucson. They're being Paso, Texas and Tucson, Ariz., freed and told to appear for hearings later. Some military bases are being used for housing, but some are just cut loose. President Obama called it a crisis and his attorney general, Eric Holder, expects to send 100 lawyers to represent the children. Also, there have been requests for $1.4 billion. One federal judge in the area declared that the government has simply chosen not to enforce the border laws. Republicans are indicating support for a form of amnesty for illegals already here, but, the new crisis is a new crisis on top of the old one. In spite of the fact that America is a racist, bigoted, oppressive society with blood on its hands from its imperialist (until now) policies, people want to come here. No, it's not those on-theborder Mexicans or Canadians who many in the open borders for North America crowd believe should be allowed to move back and forth. These are immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador who were supposedly attracted by a misunderstood directive from the administration that women and children who have been here would not be deported. Deportations have been curtailed, and it does appear that once you're here, you're here regardless of the way you got here. All in all, not counting the illegal in about 1,000,000 people a year. That's the legal process and usually includes people with pending jobs or needed skills. The illegal immigrants (not all from south of the border), more often are poor, poorly educated, is the possible health problems with mass import of unvaccinated adults and children carrying many diseases. a warning, but these new immigrants are not being quarantined. Of course, the reality is that there is a humanitarian crisis on our borders. Children can't be cut loose without any resources and support, nor can the adults. So, we're going to have to take care of these new arrivals. The problem is that the more we provide, the more come. The inability, or now, the refusal to control our borders has these consequences. Whatever comes of an amnesty bill for those already here, we're on the hook for the tab and the job pressures. Frankly, the whole situation looks politicalvotes for Democrats from the Hispanic community, pressure on the Republicans to act on an immigration bill. Is it a coincidence that Texas and Arizona, the two hardest hit states, are Republican states? Keep in mind that administration insiders have links to open borders advocates, that the administration is not enforcing the borders, that Holder has declared that illegal immigrants already in this country have civil rights. In a different twist, conservative Fox News commentator Brit Hume, who works with the immigrants, declared that these tough, resilient, bright and disciplined children who made their way across waste lands, are the kinds of new citizens we need. The problem is that with an open border we don't control what we get. Worse, even if we get a comprehensive immigration bill that includes stronger border controls, President Obama, based upon his recent actions, will only enforce laws he wants to enforce. Executive actions means legislative bills have no meaning.

In that donations be made to Woodside Hospice, Pinellas Park, FL. A private cremation has been planned. David C. Gross Funeral Homes, Central Avenue Chapel in St. Petersburg is serving the family. PETERSON, D AVID MALCOLM, 81, of Town Shores in Gulfport, FL, died Thursday, June 5, 2014. Born at Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco to Maurice and Elizabeth Marina District until age 5. After moving to Palo Alto, he attended the one-room Channing Elementary School. The family settled in Los Altos when he was 10 or 11. He fractured his skull running next to a swimming pool, and spent the next year at home with a private teacher. Although his parents and the local library provided him with ample books, this convalescence afforded him the time to read to his heart's content. He graduated with honors from Mountain View High School in 1951 and studied at San Jose State while serving in the U.S. Naval Reserve. In 1953 he joined the U.S. Army, stationed in Japan. Upon returning home in 1955, he decided to attend the University of California, at Riverside, a newly constructed "Athens on the Santa Ana River," where he was active in several clubs. Besides singing in the choir, he was a charter member served as editor of the Highlander student newspaper. It was at UCR that he met Carol Patteson, to whom he proposed marriage with uncharacteristic speed. His gambit eventually paid off, and in 1960 they married, remaining happily wed for 53 years. After graduating from UCR attended Stanford Graduate Business School. Finding more inspiration in tales of times past, he earned his MA in History at Princeton. David and Carol spent 9 years in New Jersey, where, among other things, he taught undergraduate history at Fairleigh Dickinson University ('64-68) in Madison, NJ. Moving back to California, he dabbled in real estate and in banking as a trust his true love, and he found his dream job in the cataloguing department at the UCR Rivera Library. During this period, they welcomed their only child, Eric (b. 1975). After David and Carol both retired, they set out to explore their world. Traveling once in 1998 to Britain and Scotland on a regimented tour, they asked Eric to guide them through Western Europe in 2002. Beginning in Amsterdam, they drove through eighteen countries in eight months. Although it was the trip of a lifetime, and the locals everywhere were kind and helpful, David and Carol learned how desirable a warm climate and American language and culture were to their sense of belonging. After nearly forty years in Riverside, they moved to Georgia to be close to Carol's sister-in-law and her family. When Eric moved to Gulfport, FL, David and Carol moved one last time to be close to their son and his new family. Once in Gulfport, David read the Gabber and enjoyed being outraged at the hijinks of local and state politicians. But nothing put a smile on his face like seeing his grandchildren at play, their antics "a tonic" for whatever ailed him. David was preceded in death by his parents, Elizabeth and Maurice Peterson; his sister Nancy Peterson Wagner and his nephews Carl Wagner and Jonathan Peterson. He is survived by Carol, Eric, and Grace (daughterin-law); grandchildren Oskar and Iola; Dr. Ronald Peterson (brother); beloved nieces and nephews Erica Woodcock, Jeff Wagner, Stephanie Willes, Elizabeth "Liz" Linford, Chris Peterson, Nathan Peterson, and Michelle Coyle; and many great-nieces and great-nephews.

Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 37 EqualitySo, its summer time, which means more grilling, later sunsets, and a lot of sand in my car. It also means we have a lot more kids roaming the neighborhood and that its time for PRIDE. I am proud to be a part of a community where equality matters. Which is why its so hard for me to write this column. Last week, the Gulfport chief of police and I were chatting about the recent bike thefts, and he said, Well, bike thefts always increase this time of year, when school gets out. I pointed out the only two arrests police had made in relation to those thefts were adult men. Adult white men, Id like to point out. I mention the white part because Ive heard more than one person blame that group of black kids riding their bikes around town, and it bothers me. Actually, theres a lot I hear that bothers me about how our loving community assigns blame and demands action. First, to those of you who say the judges should throw the book at the kids committing petty crimes (I believe someone actually suggested punching them in the throat and shooting them): Kids don't learn not to be criminals in jail. They learn that from their parents and, failing that, they learn it from their community. If you want a child to take the better path, include them in society, dont condemn them. If youre concerned about crime, help show kids how to make the better choice. Donate money or time to Gulfport Pirates, or Little League, the Childs Park YMCA or any number of youth organizations. Second, please don't assume it's all black kids. The two men arrested were white adults. It's tough enough being a black kid in south Pinellas without every ignorant person blaming you for things because of your skin color. I hear people bitch and bitch about kids today being too tied to their phones and video games and not playing outside "like we did when we were kids," but when they see kids riding their bikes or walking around outside and they happen to be black, all of a sudden, its a group of hoodlums. Every time I hear about roving bands of black kids stealing bikes I have to wonder, would we tolerate it if someone said gay instead of black? Pretty soon, well send a trolley full of LGBT supporters to PRIDE, and on the back about how we absolutely, positively do NOT discriminate about anyone living an alternative lifestyle. We do, however tend to ignore some of our mid-20th-century views about black people. I overheard a gay woman say, I know it was the black family because theyre poor and they have a lot of kids. While I understand that isnt how all gay people sound or that being gay doesnt mean you have no prejudices of your own, that someone who has likely experienced the harsh realities of other peoples prejudices would so brazenly express her own alarms me. Look, if youre a bigot about everything, I wont try to change you. I have better things to do with my time. But as for the rest of us, how about extending our acceptance (or, for some of you, tolerance) of people who dont look and act exactly like us to include black people? Its called equality, and its long overdue. I believe were familiar with the concept. Contact Cathy Salustri at


38 Gabber June 12 June 18, 2014 Aquamania, from front page organizer Lori Rosso. Since this was the third and the identity has changed all three years, Rosso said, this was the year that I hope will stick in peoples minds as we go forward. Debbie swept into town the same day as Aquamania. By comparison, this year the sun shone throughout the day. The morning highlight was Saber, the paddleboarding kitten. To help judge kayak races, and to offer beachgoers the rare chance to rent a kayak or standup paddleboard for the race, Kayak Nature Adventures received special permission to spend the day just inside the swim zone. Driftwood Jay, a Kayak Nature Adventures employee, brings his kitten to work. For Saber, that means a daily swim. A video at shows Saber making a beeline for the boat, but people onsite saw the kitten taking more leisurely paddles in Boca Ciega Bay. The dunk tank once again made an appearance, with Mayor Sam Henderson, Gabber publisher Ken Reichart, Gulfport Merchant Association President Lori Rosso and this reporter among those lucky enough to claim a seat in the tank. Gulfport Little League came to the dunk tank straight from the seasons closing ceremonies to demonstrate what theyd learned about pitching during the year. Throughout the day, business-sponsored goofy golf holes raised money for by Vice Mayor Christine Brown, let kids and adults decorate a rubber duck and race them along the beach. The day ended with the increasingly popular Recycle Regatta. The event grew see individuals enter alongside businesses. Gulfportian Don Chapman summarized the event: Small-town Florida at its best. Wa nt people to kno w what yo u re all ab out? Business Adve rt ising Fe at ur e Check Out This Exhibit at Creative Clay Five Years of Mail Art, collaborative paintings and drawings by Transition student artists, Creative Clay member artists, and Gibbs High School Pinellas County Center for the Arts students is open at Creative Clay, 1114 Central Ave., St. Petersburg and runs through June 18.

The exhibit is made possible with support from Pinellas County Schools, Pinellas County Center for the Arts, City of St. Petersburg and Culture Builds Florida. The Transition Program for ESE High School Students in partnership with Pinellas County School System began in 2008. It is a collaborative relationship between Pinellas County Schools and Creative Clay, with a purpose to provide arts-related transition services for 18 to 22 year olds with learning, developmental and/or emotional disabilities. The program focuses on easing the transition from the school environment to post-high school goals of independent living and employment. Creative Clays vision is to make the arts accessible for all. Its mission is to provide expressive, educational and vocational opportunities in the arts for people with obstacles to arts access. Since opening in 1995, Creative Clay has served people with developmental, physical and emotional disabilities, as well as people in healthcare settings, children, veterans and provide outreach art experiences in our community.
