In May Anne and I took over the Cherry Hill Book Store when Steve Baker retired. So now we have the opportunity to introduce SafeNow to some new people. Here Anne is engaged in a book discussion while Morely, our frog mascot, lounges on the SafeNow display.
The Arc of Illinois had a very vibrant conference in Lisle, IL. In attendance were Kevin Casey, DD director for the state of Illinois. He did stop by the booth long enough to hear about how SafeNow is creating jobs and funding for people with disabilities. I, fortunately, had my video gear with so video taped the director’s lunch talk on Thursday.
Then on Friday, Governor Quinn made a special appearance at lunch which I also had the opportunity to tape. His talk was also well received.
