Making More Holiday Magic, Part II

CCCGRS members creativity is on display during special public events, such as Holiday Magic at the Charles Paddock Zoo. Special thanks to Bob Cochran, Heather Cochran, Mark Edwards, Kalle Kangas, Will Kastner, Jesse Soto, Kelly Soto, Ric Thoroughgood, Marilyn Wammack, and Mel Wammack.

Discussions regarding ways to improve next year’s display, as well as how to adapt this layout for other public events throughout the year were overhead. Watch for announcements soon regarding our next public event!
