    First, thanks to all for your kind words of sympathy and support. Despite a national search with dealers and centers of Large Format activity, and which persisted all summer, the equipment has not been recovered. The good news is that we have received an insurance settlement which will allow us to rebuild this package for the school, and we are now turning back to our national sources as well as our local APUG family for assistance in that happy task. We want to reproduce the set as closely as possible--it was sweet and complete as it was! In the coming weeks I will be posting some searches for specific pieces, and will appreciate all your help in locating them or their closest equivalents.
    While it's not a perfect end, we are grateful that we can pick up the pieces and rebuild, and equally grateful for your community support. Large Format survives to teach a new generation! Best to all, Holly Gettings

    Holly,

    Great news! I'm glad things have worked out well for you and the school.

    Cheers, Steve
