    Chaundra, this is a solid start, but I would like to see you do some original reporting. The flyer that they have on their Facebook gives a contact name in number that you could/should interview. It would also give you the chance to use the artwork that they’re using. https://www.facebook.com/ArcofLaramieCounty/photos/a.430301463680227.98213.169756653068044/783357871707916/?type=1&theater

      Thank you for the information. It took me a while to create my little German guy so that I wouldn’t violate copyright laws. So I will probably incorporate him into the post, along with images from the Arc of Laramie County.
