This year it will be a Saturday Luncheon/Teacher Panel and will be included in your registration.

New this year is a raffle of fabulous prizes.  Each registrant will receive 2 free raffle tickets.  Some of the raffle items include: 2 one-night stays at the Hampton Inn, several $100 Visa Cards, original art – all valued over $100 each, and there’s more to come.  Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 each or 5 for $20.  Tickets can be purchased at the Art Center.  (Raffle open to anyone)
