The crane folding event at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum was a resounding success. It was a mix of children, young adults and adults. People kept stopping in over the two hours. At one point, Karleen Grummett reported, “After all the teaching had stopped and people were folding, a moment of zen hit and it was absolutely quiet except for the sounds of paper folding. My heart just melted. This small group made over 200 cranes in that time…all novices. Hooray!”
A big thank you to the instructors: Betty Marriott, Joanne Wilder, Joyce Mill and Jeanne Hansen. They made everyone feel successful! Thanks also to Jackie Triplette for coordinating yet another event as well as helping to instruct. She provided bubbly punch and the museum set out coffee and tea to compliment Joyce Hall’s Easter Peeps. Enough sugar was provided to keep everyone going.
Those participating were Anne Fuller, Ian Fuller, Barbara Pavitt, Mary Diven, Daemon Cook, Allen Cook, Sheridan Cook, Abigail Cook, Stacy Eldemar, Bruce Kato, Lindsey Kato, Jacki Smail, Russell Strandtmann, David Gray, Kris Gray, Janie Homan, Karleen Grummett, Jackie Triplette, Betty Marriott, Joyce Mill, Joanne Wilder and the Barnhill family of Peggy, Jamie, Laura and Johnny.
We are very grateful for everyone’s help on our way to 1000 cranes…..and more.
