Today was the concluding celebration at Jibe for a recent placemaking project. For the past year, local residents were featured on pole banners throughout North Natomas. Participants were invited to pick up their banners and meet the artist who told their stories, Janine Mapurunga. I knew several of the residents chosen to participate: Ray, Amal, Cathy, and Laura. Their stories were also on display at the local library.

Seated are Donna and Ray. Ray fixes LOTS of bikes out of the goodness of his heart.
