Thank you to our volunteers at the Menil Community Arts Festival!
A huge THANK YOU to those who volunteered with TALA at the information booth for the Menil Community Arts Festival on Saturday, March 13th.  The festival was a great success with beautiful weather, record attendance and great programming provided by the participating organizations.  More thanks are due to the sponsors of the festival and to the staff of Aurora Picture show for doing much of the legwork for the event.
