Our brave film crew and our intrepid interns braved the 90 degree heat on August 16 to begin work on a short documentary. Thanks to all the folks who have volunteered their time and stories so far. We will be organizing another filming event soon so stay tuned.
Thanks to Rheannon Rice, local filmmaker, for donating her expertise!
