Ann Arbor, Michigan

August 6th, 2010

8-6-10Jeff McCabe and Lisa Gottlieb introduced themselves to me at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market earlier in the week; they wanted to know all about the Kindness Bus Tour. An invite to stay at their home and have breakfast at their Selma Cafe’ grew out of that meeting. Arriving late last night I rolled up in front of their home and called it a day. On Fridays, people from all around the area and beyond come to meet at this once a week establishment. Lisa was kind enough to introduce me to the crowd and it started the conversation. Over 150 people come to catch up with the goings-on in the community. It was a perfect opportunity for me to spread my message to them.
Local farmers and groups were stationed near the entrance to provide fresh produce and information to the crowd. I stayed until late morning when most everyone was gone. I met a very interested Valerie in a nearby shopping center, she took a small stack of stickers to pass to her friends.
We headed to the University of Michigan one last time and was able to talk with many of the “early risers” this late morning. Ann Arbor proved to be a very friendly town as all three nights here, we stayed at three different homes, a virtual accommodation “hat trick.”  My sincere thanks to all.
