What a great show! Thank you to all those who attended! The 2,000 programs were handed out at the entry–just one per couple or group–and all were gone by noon although crowds were steady until closing. So crowd estimates are over 4,000, and sales were the best since record keeping began over 8 years ago! A huge thank you to all who volunteered, exhibited, or attended!
