Day 20: Event in Clyde. We held our 5th event today at the Clyde Public Library. The original building dates to 1905. This beautiful old stone building is impressive with its stonework and attention to detail.
This event was quite different from our other events, as our guests were all middle school and high school students. The young folks were part of an after school program at the library called SPLAT, facilitated by our host, Rachel. At the high point, we had 23 students in the room. Some chose not to participate, as we expected. That didn’t prevent the rest of the students from having a great time adorning books and playing with the cheesecloth.
11 of the students adorned books of their choosing. The results were some of the best we’ve seen yet. Their use of color and materials was particularly good.
The part of the event they enjoyed the most was when they got to cover their facilitator Rachel under a mountain of cheesecloth. The joy and laughter in the room echoed how much fun they had. Rachel was a good sport about getting “buried” by the students.
After the event, we drove from Clyde to Fort Wayne, IN through more miles of beautifully maintained lawns and a couple of cool towns in Ohio named Mauwee and Perrysville. We crossed into Indiana around 7:50pm, just before dark. It’s our 5th state; 7 more to go. We’ll be in Indiana for the next few days for one of our library events on Sal’s birthday and to visit multiple car museums.
Car museums in Auburn, IN (home of the Duesenberg, Cord, and Auburn) for Lynn today. Sal has a work day planned, hanging out in one of our new favorite hotels, Hyatt Place.
