Springhill Mall-funding? I thought the mall did that for the community and bringing in customers. A shame. BRAVO to River Arts! I hope they put out a donation jar at the store, or we all need to donate something to thank this business for giving back to the community. ( Thank you Reprographics/Dick Blicks and Artistic Framing too!)
