The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Forida has an "Apple Pie Tree" at their entrance that needed restoration. The RMHC supported the Cape Coral Art League SUMMER ART CAMP and the CCAL gives back too!
The Cape Coral Art League thanks the RMHC for their support by giving back. Thank you to Christine Dekkers and Hal Klingler who completed a restoration project of the "Apple Pie Tree". Thank you for your tremendous experience in knowing the right materials to restore the tree to its former glory!
The best "Apple Pie Tree" that Christine recalls was at Frank & Sue Behan's restaurant in Glastonbury, CT. They had a mirrored window that children couldn't see. The tree would tell stories but also commented on the chilren in the audience, because the storyteller could see them. Christine reflects back on the many smiles on the children's faces as the tree would comment about a bow in a child's hair and they couldn't figure out how the tree knew!
Many thanks to Laura and her staff for encouragement and excitement as the tree came to life again!
