Stained Glass window installed today

Michael Pilla installed the first set of three stained glass windows at the House today. What an artist! What a gift to the families, staff and volunteers who see these beautiful windows on a daily basis. Michael's use of clear and white glass, stars and a band of blue representing the Mississippi River forms a dramatic, but calming focal point on the exterior wall of windows. As the light changes during the day, the various colors and shapes also change.

We are so fortunate to have Michael willing to give of his time and talent to make these windows a reality. Thanks also to Andersen Windows who donated the trim kits for installing the windows. Many donors accepted an invitation to make a donation, which was matched dollar for dollar, to fund this project. We look forward to the remaining windows Michael is going to create for the House. Drive by the Oak Street side of the House or stop by and ask to see the new windows.
