At the Women’s Show yesterday, Trish gave a speech about what the city council is doing. She had a pretty nice little group gathered to hear her talk. She was explaining all kinds of things the council is looking at and some upcoming votes we’ll be doing.
She also had a booth for the first time. She was doing free legal checkups and talking to people. Every time I looked down her way she was busy, so I think it was a good experience for her.
We happened to be on the same aisle with Trish and with the Volunteer Center and the Zoo. It was a nice location. I was gone last year when they did the show, and other people set it up for me. They tell me this was our spot last year, too. It’s a good location.
I didn’t even take a photo of my own booth yesterday. It’s one of those things that never looks as good in the photo as you expect it to. People do really elaborate booths, but I keep mine pretty simple. I like to be able to set it up and take it down pretty quickly – otherwise you’re just overwhelmed with it after a long day.
This show runs from 9-4. They tell the non profits to not pack up before then and that you’ll lose your spot if you do. On our aisle Leah and I were the only ones that waited until 4. Some booths were already completely clear by the time we started.
Trish had a nice banner done. That’s something I’ve got to get is a new banner for the MHA. It’s always one of those things I’m going to get around to but now that we have the new logo I need to actually get it done.
