Tremont Festival

September 12th, 2009

I attended an art/cultural festival in Tremont, Ohio at the request of Darla and John, who were gracious enough to let me stay at their house Saturday night.  The bus seems to act as an attractant, and the people were incredibly interested in what I’m trying to do.

Earlier in the week, I had the good fortune to meet and speak with a young lady named Maggie, who is president of the student council at Chagrin Falls High School, Chagrin Falls, Ohio.  As a result of our discussion, during the festival,  the president of the senior class and a friend came up and said, “You talked to Maggie, and we would like to make OMAK our senior project.”  I thought that was one of the best ideas I’ve heard in a long time.  Implementation plans are now in the works……and the beat goes on. My special thanks to Julie, Bob, and Lorraine for there wonderful help and attention.   I’m seeing every day in one way or another that this project is becoming contagious. 

Out of the blue I received a call from a high school student in Tucson, Arizona who is running for class president.  He requested 500 stickers for his campaign.  How he got wind of the OMAK work I don’t know, but I can see that word is getting out.
