In 2012 Lisa responded to Presidents Obama’s request to help our Veterans return home from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. She was inspired to create an event that would allow Veterans to experience glass blowing in their hometowns by organizing glass studios and workshops throughout our nation. The project called “Veterans Glassblowing Day” is scheduled for November 9th 2013. Veterans and active service members, will be able to attend a free Glassblowing Workshop at participating schools. Lisa hopes to take the VGD further by creating a non-profit that will fund Veterans interests in pursuing a career in art glass.
