Clothesline Project

April 23, 2011
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the Crisis Center has organized The Clothesline Project to honor women and men who have been affected by sexual and domestic violence.

Join us and enjoy local music, food vendors and make t-shirts that reflect your experience or... the experience of a loved-one. The event is free of charge. Donations are appreciated and will go to the sexual assault program at the Crisis Center.
