The volunteer spirit began with the 1st Annual Children's Museum Art Contest, sponsored by Dr. Sanjeev Vasishtha. The art created by the 32 children who entered the contest is on display on the 3rd floor of the Museum. Winners include: Emily Torbitt, Fransisca C., Nicole Briata, Victoria Fevolo, Aakash Vashishta, Malini Verma, Anthony LaPorte, Hannah Ruzala, and Alya Suliman. Several consolation prizes were also given. Our thanks to Dr. V., his volunteers, and the judges.

The month saw several programs presented every Saturday and Sunday, as well as every day during the school break week. Giving of their time and talent were: Becky Kessler & Thanh Bui; Gus Napoli; Tim Butcher; Janice Rolling; Christine ShahinWood; Paul Harnik; Matt Renninger; Lucille; Utica College Gospel Choir; Stevens Swan Humane Society; Ellen Meyers; Doug Preston; Patrick Scalise; Suzie Lamm, Dr. Sanjeev Vasishtha.
