"I want you to know how much I appreciated receiving the main prize for the 2021 juried show. The money that accompanies this is fantastic and the experience has been so very encouraging for me. Thanks so much to all your volunteers and also the jurors for the work that they do. The former have been so welcoming and helpful whenever I have visited. Please also express my thanks to the Town of Bancroft".   Regards, Marilyn Simpson
