At the Grand Opening celebration on June 3, 2017, members of the BARN Board and studio leads cut a long red ribbon into pieces, which were theirs to keep.

Just before the ribbon was cut, they split into two groups to alternate in reading the following phrases:

It takes a community

To raise a BARN

Thanks to all

Who gave so generously

Your time

Your ideas

Your donations

Your love

The entire group joined to say:

Together we did it! Welcome to BARN!

And the ribbon was cut!
