Look and feel decisions

  • Get a photo of Tilikum Crossing for first row "banner" image
  • Reformat menu: scratch news, add subcategories to events: community action; Fairs and Parades; Celebrations; Meetings; Announcements. (Note: press releases to go on main page below immediate asks)
  • Lora for headers, Verdana for all else, subject to further research by Brooke.
  • Coloration to depend on logo - which we will try to keep narrow
