Family and Friends Day

The concert was just the beginning of an activity filled weekend! On Saturday morning for Family and Friends Day, we worked together on projects throughout the community including: mulching paths; clearing rocks from the potato field; creating mosaics in the pottery studio and baking dinner rolls. There was time to rest and socialize, view the beautiful coursework exhibit hung by art teacher Alison Fox and Aroon Kalsi and have lunch together to reconnect with the Triform family.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this a wonderful weekend!
