Showcase brings 1,000-plus to Springs Preserve

     The Friends staffed the central information table in the museum rotunda from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on March 21, which was designated a free-admission day at the Springs Preserve. Our table helped direct visitor traffic to the Museum Showcase – consisting of tables manned by 20 different local or regional museums.
     According to a Springs Preserve representative, more than 1,000 people came to the campus to participate in the Museum Showcase.
     Thank you to our volunteers for all your help: Sue D’Agostino, Barbara Ciocca, Diana Mason, Carol Swearingen, Sarah Hulme, Wayne Pichler and Joan Whitely.
