We had a booth at the annual SW Florida Reading Festival on March 7, 2020. Nine busy FOCCL volunteers took shifts during the day as children used our art supplies to create 86 entries for the annual Coloring the Earth kids environmental art contest. Theme this year: Let's Save the Monarch Butterfly!"
