We also will be decorating a Christmas tree with DooDah ornaments on tortillas, perhaps made at home, or as part of the free day or a tortilla-making workshop – need to think about that more………

WE and THE SHOW NEEDS: Volunteers who know construction… color printing and color enlargements for free (or a willing company you know?), to come to the cocktail party and recruit others to come, people to help lead aspects of the exhibit (this may include research, driving to pick things up, meeting folks, sorting through lots of pictures, organizing a timeline), Graphic artists are sorely needed!, people who can use photoshop and are good with computers…historical stuff about Doo Dah!
