Carolyn’s note: and Happy Halloween 2017 this year, full of ghouls, mysterious occurrences, and resistance.
Standing room only last night for this opening reception for Dia de los Muertos, with several ofrendas and lovely art pieces. Former Ward 6 Councilwoman Molly McKasson present, with her son, in celebration of the 7th anniversary of the passing of her husband Rich Morgan. Delicious pot luck followed the blessing ceremony.
