It all began with a sketch.
With input from the town, Jen created a sketch of many of Rock Hall's most prominent landmarks, the first step in the process.
Then, over the course of a couple of months, the RHGC organized several community participation days in different locations throughout the town like the municipal building, elementary school, fire department, and the Easter egg hunt.
Jen and members of the RHGC were available each of these days to assist anyone who wanted to be a part of the project with cutting and laying glass.
I'm amazed at how quickly and beautifully the project came together.

Jen has an incredible talent for taking the essence of a town and turning it into a work of art, made out of glass! And not only that, she helped teach a town (of novices!) to help.
It took a tremendous amount of hard work on the part of the RHGC to coordinate this project. I love that they did this for our town and that they organized and encouraged community participation.
Since I joined the RHGC this past year, I've been amazed by how much they contribute to the town!
From the town sign to the gazebos at the beach to the flower pots along Main Street to so much more, they have done so much to beautify our town and we're so lucky to have them.
Much of the money they use to fund projects like the mosaic and the ones listed above come from the Rock Hall Garden Club Annual Plant Sale (click the link for details).
One of the very best ways you can support them in their efforts to give back to the town of Rock Hall is to stop by the plant sale and buy something for this year's garden or for Mother's Day.
And, if you haven't already, check out all of the pictures I captured of this project, and download copies for yourself (complimentary, of course), in this online gallery.

Hi, I'm Jen. I'm a suburban mechanical engineer turned Eastern Shore family storytelling photographer. I'm also an observer. A family historian. A legacy preserver. I create authentic photographs full of emotion and heart that help sentimental families maintain a nostalgic connection with their past (such as this extended family photo session at Spring Cove Manor in Rock Hall).
