 Iona Muniz came from Puerto Rico to participate in the Magdalene Fair.


 The food was donated by several people, starting with  Judy Delerme, who inspired us to have a meal for all our guests!

 Jorge LaTorre helped hang the show. I'm so grateful to him, Wanda Rosario, Elisa Evora and her friend Elia who made this exhibition the least stressful ever!
