    1. Good Morning Bobbi,

      It was so nice to see you at the Poinciana Business Expo this weekend. I am so glad you like the way our new administrative building is coming along for The Toho Water Authority. We plan to move in the second week in August (fingers crossed) and are looking to have the Grand Opening the last week in July or first week in August. As soon as a date has been picked I will inform you of the details. If you would like to have a piece of artwork displayed at the grand opening please let me know and I can also work on having that arranged.

      I absolutely loved your idea of setting up an exhibit during National Drinking Water Week in May 2011.

      Congratulations again for placing in the NRDC Environmental Art Contest! How exciting!!

    2. Dear Bobbi,
      Congratulations on the NRDC award. I think it is a great project.
      Can’t wait to see what you put in the new TOHO office building. I love your work, it is very imaginative.
      Hope to see you soon,
