Had another fantastic experience at Case Western Reserve University Leonard Gelfand Stem Center's SHIPWRECK CAMP held at Cleveland's beautiful University Circle CWRU campus in mid July. The young students are awesome, and organizers, instructors and volunteers are top notch. I never cease to be amazed at what the students do and create. I feel privileged to be part of this experience. I also had the opportunity to meet and talk with some of the parents of the students, and enjoyed our interesting discussions. Thank you, Kathy and crew for inviting me back!
August, I attended a Civil War event held at Hale Farm and Village in Akron. The reenactors are always eager to share the history of the subject matter they are representing or performing. I learn a lot at such events especially because these folks are sticklers for accuracy and authenticity. It is an opportunity for me to be immersed in a time period I enjoy studying.
