So long till next year ~ Enmaichi is over for another year!
We spent the whole day downtown yesterday. We bike/wiked to church and directly after, we went to ECS. After a quick lunch we set up for Open Door.
Festivals will be festivals...
We had several old friends stop by. We made some new friends. We were there for a child in need - just as we were getting ready to close things up a mother came asking if there was a toilet her young one could use.
Open Door was a success!
One mixed result of Open Door - Garbage. We have a table & stools for people to sit down at. We also have boxes for garbage & recycling. Festival goers are not always careful where/what they pitch. Several times we need to check to make sure trash has been properly disposed of. When I was doing this, I noticed several of the cute little ice cream bowls in our trash box. I took them in, washed them up and have given 20 of those poor little orphans a home!
YES - I turned dumpster diver!!
