May I present what I think is technically our second actual 'exhibit'! A PVC pipe building play set. Many thanks to Kris at the Oneonta Home Depot for all the great pvc materials! Lowes is also contributing to the project (I'll know to ask for more of the little connecting pieces.) I must mention http://blog.orselli.net/ (Exibitricks) for sharing the great advice and ideas with us. And enough can't be said for The Daily Star, who is generously sponsoring the ice cream social next Sunday, June 7th (1-5pm in Oneonta's Wilber Park). All the ice cream you could want, all for free, plus family friendly entertainment: The Utica Zoomobile, The Farmer's Museum (children's games), entertainment throughtout the day by various local groups, storytelling, remote control aircraft... I could go on.
I also need to thank my husband, Tom Pondolfino, for doing all the cutting and sanding. The only problem with the playset? It's a little hard to get the pvc pipe stuck into the mat, but then, it needs to stay stuck so no way around that. And my son decided that he wants one of his own!!!
