    Hi Jennifer,
    We met at the Frenchman Bay Partners meeting back in May. I am working with Earthwatch volunteers this week at Schoodic and some of them have expressed interest in coming to your interactive art program tomorrow afternoon. I am just double checking… it’s at Frazer Point at 3:00 and, if they have them, they should bring their cameras or smartphones… is all of that correct?
    Thanks! Hannah
