Ms. Merkle has a long history with the theater and has been a Director in the past as well as a loyal supporter When ask for her reaction to this news she commented, "This means so much because it recognizes my photography in a really meaningful way, and increases the sentiment that I have always felt for the artistic community in Bloomfield. It would have made my late husband so happy to see this happening because Shawnee was so instrumental in forming who he was as an adult."
