Yes We Can!, a program that showcases the wisdom and experiences of people who are 80 and over, is back at Creative 360 and begins with a luncheon honoring Arthur and Judy Frock on Friday, July 29th in the Creative 360 Bayliss Street Gallery.

The Frocks, both Miami University graduates moved to Midland in 1985 when Art became superintendent of Midland Public Schools.

Judy taught 5th grade in the Coleman Schools and was recognized by Central Michigan University and the VFW for Excellence in Teaching. She was also honored by the Voices program as one of the Extraordinary Women of Midland County.  Judy has served on the Midland Symphony board, was president of both the Chippewa Nature Center Board, and her PEO chapter, and was a founding board member of Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch.
