Thank you, everyone who participated! Like us on Facebook to stay current with future games and contests.
Keep an eye out for photos of the construction process. Our joyful volunteers will be gluing the pennies into panels, with holes drilled just a bit larger than the actual size of a penny. The panels will then be adhered to the ceiling. Interested in becoming a volunteer? Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how to get in touch with you!
