Thank you once again Art program volunteers for making this year’s Art Program, "Art Magic" a huge success. You are appreciated for inspiring our young artists to accomplish such enjoyable and beautiful art. Many residents of the community and families of JES attended the show and were awed by the scope of our volunteer cooperative and our students artistic talents. Well done! We are so fortunate to have the support of the staff and teachers at Jacksonville and the use of our very own art room. I hope you all return next year as volunteers. We want to acknowledge a few very important volunteers that were missed in our show program:
Louis Robertson, Marion Denard, Ashley Campanella, Jessica Cabalo and Molly Nyberg.
