Here's a look at the final product; our display board. I say "our" because the project was supposed to be for the kids and parents.

This would explain my love of Swedish Fish.

|A little history about the town; Kristianstad, Sweden|
|You thought the clubs were hot on Saturday night.|
They've got nothin' on this place.
Here they are, tearin' it up before the sun's even down!
As for me, apparently I'm genetically wired to be this good.
|I think this picture speaks for itself.|
