A picture is worth a thousand words.  Here are a few that might fill in the blanks left by my reporting:

The fact that Art Creation Foundation for Children offers three meals a day to its youth is very very important.  Here is where money for food goes:

You can see how the children’s imagination and skills have evolved in these images.  And they are so proud of their work!

ACFFC will celebrate its tenth anniversary as a 501c3 corporation later this year.  This milestone is the perfect time for us to reflect on the amazing achievements of the past decade and move ahead on plans for the future.  A future that looks very promising for the Art Creation Foundation for Children youth!

    Hi Diane,

    Great blog. I really love it. About the Berkshires triploid carp escapade: I know the farm, Sally and her family fairly well. Our house is less than a mile from the White Oak Farm. What a small world. Didn’t know about the carp and Fred’s expertise. Have you tried Pete’s BBQ sauce?
