This month, I completed a painting to be given as a gift to the Director at the Monarch School in Rochester New Hampshire as a thank you gift for her hard work.
The Monarch School recently completed a new building on Monarch Way, off Eastern Avenue, and what a beautiful place it is! This school supports individuals with special needs so they can realize their greatest potential. The staff is truly amazing at what they do, and the best part of this experience was to see how much the staff love the school, their Director and especially their students!
There was such positive energy surrounding everything Monarch, it was contagious and wonderful and I wish the rest of the world was just a little bit more Monarch. :)
