Thanks for the memories

A SUCCESSFUL SECOND YEAR

The sun didn’t shine for our second annual Fall Festival, but that didn’t stop us from playing!

Whether in the classroom or in the courtyard, attendees were up and moving at the Shisler Center in Wooster, Ohio, trying their hand in the GaGa Ball pit or galloping like a horse in a morning breakout session.

Interactive exhibits encouraged attendees to touch and feel products and even jump into a friendly game of Murbles, examine rifles up close, and take home samples of nutrients guaranteed to make your garden grow.

And by the end of the day, everyone had an opportunity to learn something new from one of our speakers, vendors, and even our keynote speaker, who was sure to let everyone know why he or she was important to the agency they serve.

We couldn’t have done it without the support from our vendors and attendees who challenge us to provide even more hands-on exhibits and adventures in years to come. So thanks to everyone and rest assured—we take all of your suggestions and observations to heart and promise to incorporate them into the next Fall Festival.

Whether you had an opportunity to attend or wish you had, we look forward to seeing everyone again on October 12, 2017.
