Elaine Comegys Black Film Festival

I didn't know Elaine, but we always shared a smile, she had such a lovely smile. I do know she was a very special person to many and her death was a great loss to the community (see article). When Nancy and I saw the post office bench (dedicated to her ) looking a bit worn we wanted to decorate it with knit graffiti.

I like to think that she would have appreciated this and enjoyed it.
(we are getting ready to replace it with some new knitted/felt pieces late spring).
"Before she died in November, consummate community woman Elaine Comegys, (shown in the photo above with Barbara Fleming at her left), came up with the idea of a black film festival to jump start conversations about race relations. source: YS News
