Happy Holidays from C2C!
We’ve begged for and borrowed the following pix to share holiday cheer (from various North Carolina cultural heritage institutions) with colleagues across the state and others in our national network too. Thanks for following us this year and enjoy your time away from the office. We’ll be back in touch in 2013!
