“Stever House cordially invites you to a reception and open house, with light appetizers. Mingle with current and past residents of 1030 Morewood Avenue. We will be displaying New House canvases and current student work on the first floor.”

Note from Andy: “Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this year, but if you’re in the area, you should definitely stop in for some fun. Who knows, maybe you’ll get to meet one of your favorite characters from New House 5…”
