Opening Night April 1st was a dream! I couldn't have hoped for more. I was completely blown away at the response to ECHO and the beauty in the room. Many people came who had connections to Picher. Those many were having wonderful, connecting conversations with others in the room who were there to see the exhibit. I counted at least 4 people who were in tears. This man pictured here, Ray Moore, was a graduate of Picher High School 5 years before I was born. He brought me beautiful, sparkling lead ore rocks that he had collected from the Picher mining site many years ago. He thought I should have them. He thanked me many times for the exhibit. My heart is full of gratitude for the wonderful response.
