This month I took some time to reflect on how much a community can do together. I assembled the photos I took over the year during “An Evening with Ellen”.

“An Evening with Ellen” limited audience prepares for ceremonial stroll to Odd Fellows Hall

“An Evening with Ellen” started with actor Mary Baird and non-profit sponsor The Famous Marching Presidents and grew and gained momentum throughout 2020…best of all, it kept me creatively engaged during 2020.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
