Crafts, Photos and Stories
Its summer and the Ballot Box Projects you voted for are getting started.
Craft Up Collinwood began their Ballot Box Project activity Friday, May 20th. The tables at Memorial-Nottingham Library were covered with large roles of vinyl, scissors, staplers, and phone wire. Children of all ages were sitting around the tables folding the vinyl over and over again. These were turned into flowers that will eventually decorate vacant lots in the neighborhood. Each Friday through June, different craft projects will happen at Memorial-Nottingham before installation.
