We are back from vacation and have had time to decompress and adequately review all of the details from the 2016 Festival. We are already beginning to plan for the 2017 Festival and welcome your suggestions for teachers, classes, activities etc.
The 3 Grand Prize winners were selected on site. Congratulations to:
Leslie Stouffer of Slippery Rock, PA – Winner of the Just for me Basket which included various fun products to help you relax
