1995 - The Ocean Show-A VAL Project. This is a theme we continued to build on, changing shape as opportunities arose. How many people from all over?? who can say! explore the links! The fish bricks framed each 8' X 4' piece and they have been moved to the Stone Museum.

The PIPE DREAMS Adventure began in late October, 2000 and is still going on, although winding down! Over forty schools involved. Making the count of people in this show is practically impossible. The Rubber Hand Pipe alone had hundreds of hands. We lost count..may well be a thousand for the one pipe.
