Lights, Camera, Story

Jay loved a good story and he was the best at telling them. We would like to honor him by letting all of you tell your stories about Jay!

Please share your memories of this special man. A professional filmmaker will be setup during the art show and ready to record your stories, your tributes, and your unknown tales of mischief. We will also welcome photographs or memorabilia which we could include in the video archive as well.

Filming will take place in a quiet room adjacent to the art show:
Thursday, Aug 19: 6pm–7:45pm
Friday, Aug 20: 10am–12pm, 2pm–5:45pm
Saturday, Aug 21: 10am–12pm, 2pm–5:45pm

Special Guest
