Dont Fence Me In Sucess

Jul 24, 2017

Don’t Fence Me In was a huge success last Saturday. We had a large amount of the community come out to celebrate the unveiling and to find where their pickets ended up.

It took a lot to make this 1200 picket display happen! We had 16 organizations and individuals donate materials.
