Branching out a bit...

Something different, for a change.

I liked the food festival, as it brought the various ethinic groups together. We had a few Italian families making spetza and sausage and peppers, the Mexican families making their food, and some Polish people making theirs. It was a great display of diversity and unity at the same time, long before those words became buzz words.

Bringing it back is a good idea, but I'm not sure that asking for people to donate time, food, and all the profits from their work (and it is a lot of work) is going to be as sucessful as it was in years past. Old Dover Days involves a lot of people in a lot of different groups, especially kids, and people are stretched thin already.

We'll see how it goes, but the sign up sheets this weekend didn't look promising.
