The Rescue Mission held the Awards Reception for their 6th Annual Permanent Art Collection Competition in the Men’s Shelter at the Rescue Mission on Sunday, May 6. All entries will remain on display throughout the men’s shelter  through Thursday, May 31.  Winners were announced on May 6th, including a special category called The People’s Choice, which was selected by overnight guests of the shelter.
