As a long time friend of Catherine Debs, I've always known her to have boundless energy.It is so great that the community takes away something out of this effort whatever it may be. The kids have fun, the parents all meet each other , people are waving and asking whats next....it is really inspirational and Catherines creativity shines through...she gets back 3x what she put out there....stay tuned!

I love tree decorations and I don't even live in that neighborhood. When my kids bike home from Paly they always ask if I've seen the latest. It's wonderful, it makes people happy. Thank you for brightening our day!

We enjoy the trees immensely and look forward to making those a destination on a walk. Thank you for the creative time and efforts that go into making these lovely and thoughtful public art displays.
