And, Worcester County; Buckingham, Ocean City, Pocomoke, Showell and Snow Hill Elementary.

Members of WAF personally presented each of these Dick Blick gift cards to the art department representatives or art teachers at the schools. It was very gratifying to WAF to provide these additional funds to promote the creativity of students in their art projects.
