Hat N' Boots

We had a successful event, building awareness of the amazing Hat N' Boots. Lots of press coverage, a radio interview and many folks stopping by, even donating money. Had a nice BBQ also. The flowers remained on the Hat for several weeks and looked simply gorgeous...a great big colorful Arbor. A lot of work by many volunteers but well worth it. Stop by any time. We hope for more funding and full restoration in the future.
