    1. Hi Elinor, my apologies for the delayed response. I’m our volunteer website manager and have been a bit behind. We would love to see any photos! Thank you so much. The best way would be to send to my e-mail at and I can share them with the rest of the group here and on our Facebook page. -Hillary
