Entertainment for the evening included a live painting by artist Angela Shelstad with Project Hue and live music by Green Bay Preble High School Orchestra. Frank Hermans, local writer, publisher, singer and majority owner of Let Me Be Frank Productions, graciously volunteered his time to be the Emcee for the evening, as did Erica Bergers of Erica Jean Photography, who beautifully captured the evening through her camera lens and creative eye. The community support has astounded us once again.
