Wow, what a great crowd of young artists, their parents and some grandparents! I helped greet people at the door and milled around a bit during the award ceremony. As usual the crumbs on the floor were first class – did I mention we have a great chef at the Blaine House? Here are pictures of some of the artists and their families.
Author of three children’s books, Angeli Perrow of Hampden, Maine , gave the First Lady a copy of her latest book, Many Hands, A Penobscot Indian Story, for her grandchildren. I’m going to make sure I am in the room with Nick and Olivia when the First Lady reads the book to them!
This is William Zidel with his family in front of his artwork at the Blaine House. Does his dad look familiar to you? Yep, his dad is Matt Zidel, the meteorologist for Channel 8 News! BTW – great art work William!!
