The Women of the Moose generously donate funds to underwrite the Elementary Student Art Show, and volunteer to hang the artwork for display once it comes back from the Libraries. Assemblywoman Alicia Hughes-Skandijs will present awards to students whose art is selected for the show.
Community Day on Campus is a do-it-yourself event, with artists and groups bringing their own tables, chairs, tents and other booth accoutrements and clearing them away at the end of the day. Electricity is available to participants upon request. In the unlikely event of rain, Community Day on Campus will move inside to the Egan Library.
