You will find a delightful array of art work, woodworking, home furnishings, sewing and needlework, and much more. Best of all, every exhibit has been painted, designed, built, or sewn by our youth.The knowledge, skill, and talent of these future citizens are sure to make you proud. Young people are so creative and we are proud to be able to offer them a platform so they can show off the fruits of their labor.
