PBE at the New York State Fair

On 29 August 2008, the faculty, staff, and students of the PBE department set up at the SUNY-ESF tent to make hand-made paper.  While the day started out rainy, it stopped just before the tent opened at 10am and a steady business of customers came through to make and decorate a sheet of paper.
