A big thank you to Louise Stuart for bringing her rotating collection of beautiful banners to use as back drops for the Photo Booth.

The printing of the photos from the Photo Booth were managed by lab supervisors, John Lafferty, John Moule, Larry Cunningham and Rick Vettraino. Some of the visitors were so happy with the result that they asked for several prints to be made of their images on the spot.
