Celebration of Smiles 2017

It is back- Celebration of Smiles 2017! Every year, we do free portraits to support Operation Smile.  For a donation of merely $25, we photograph you and give you the digital file.  No strings attached.  For every 10 we do, enough money is raised ($250) to pay for a child to have surgery.  What a deal!
