Civic Media Center May/June Events
May/June 2005

We'd like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the people who helped to make SpringBoard 2005 a raging success. Thank you CMC members and members of the community for attending and for your generous contributions. Thank you CMC volunteers and board for helping to set up and staff the event. Our hostess, Paula Stahmer, would especially like to thank everyone who assisted in the cleaning-up process at the end of the evening-- your help was greatly appreciated. Now that the CMC has raised some money, we're ready to get back to work!
