- Just wanted to make a correction in my name as it appears in the Feb. 25th article about the LBKCA's Members' show. My name is Carolyn Campeau not Carol Campean. My first place piece is called "Green Rules!" Thank you for your attention to this detail. The show is hung beautifully and is up till March 19th. The Center is open 9-4 Mon.-Fri.
