ARTS OF UTOPIA- welcome back Brook Ochoa (owner)! This young lady will be gracing us with her great artisic ability doing face painting in our Kids Zone, although I believe I saw more adults there; which is completely okay. Remember we are family friendly.

The Flores- these lovely ladies join us each year to offer their wonderful diabetic friendly treats. They also offer a wonderful cookbook that has a complete Thanksgiving meal that is diabetic friendly as well.

Wharton County Junior College Nursing Program- This crew joined us last year and I was extrememly proud of them.
