Goodbye Fayetteville!

Posted on Monday, April 2nd, 2007.

On one of our last nights in Fayetteville, we went to see Big Smith, a Springfield, Missouri bluegrass band that is very popular in Fayetteville. We brought along Jenna Weiss-Berman, another facilitator who just got into town to help us pack up and move the booth to Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she will be facilitating with Susan Lee.

We were also confronted with the very sad task of saying goodbye to our good friends Leigh Wood, the Membership Director at KUAF, and her husband Robert. Then a dog drove the booth away to Kalamazoo. Really, look closely at the driver!
