We had a great time in St. Johns! RACC's Public Art Department and St. John's Main Street gave the community an evening of fun, and creativity in the St. John's community spirit. And Signal Station Pizza was a fantastic location host taking really good care of us with their yummy pizza, great beer and delish ice cream! Pictures and more details on the event are coming soon!
