Food for Thought a La Fort Lauderdale.
That was the name of our event and I have to say, it went very well. We got nothing but compliments, no mayor glitches, most people came and everyone ate and had a nice time.
I’m not going to lie, I’m glad this is done. For the last three months we all worked so hard and the two days before, some of us worked really really hard. But it’s done. I’m ready to move to my next project, but not before heading to Montana for a little R & R with Beba. The husband will join me a week later, and we will be spending some much needed family time.
A few weeks ago, there was a Hurricane Preparedness event sponsored by the county. While we were there for the SWAG, we met a young lady by the name of Caitie Switalski who happens to work for WLRN. Our local NPR radio station. We chatted and I mentioned the Food for Thought event. Well, she came and she covered the event! Here’s the link:
If you look closely, the husband is in it.
My friend the writer also came. The next day we talked about the event, and she asked me if I thought that anything would come out of it and yes I do. On our table was sitting GG and the Director of the Athletic Department for the High School and they exchanged numbers because one thing that GG always needs is volunteers and one thing that kids in high school need are volunteering hours. Match made in free child labor haven! As I understand it, they already worked on some stuff together. So, even if that’s the only connection that happened, I would call the event a win. But I know that it wasn’t. We haven’t had our last meeting but I’m sure most of us feel that way. This was a room full of people that want to help make this city better, they are not shy and they can and often do roll up their sleeves to get to work.
