Children, volunteers, and staff members enjoyed an arts residency with Tracy Szanto from Dreamland Machine Quilting. Tracy offered all an opportunity to work in her professional studio in Penacook, as each generated whimsical pieces in contribution to a larger group quilt that will be placed on display soon at the Friends Program office at 202 North State Street in Concord. The piece is titled, Joy Valley. Special thanks to the Rite Aid Foundation KidcentsTM for the financial support to make this possible.

Participating in this special activity, in addition those pictured above, were:
