Oh, how I love it when things come together nicely. After a work emergency that kept me from attending our planning meeting on Monday, I’ll admit I was a little worried about how the Tooele Chamber of Commerce Business Expo (or The Taste of Tooele) would go. I was even more worried on Wednesday, the day of the expo, when I realized I was already suppose to be there; I had only one known volunteer, and our banners were still attached to our float.
Well, I pulled my delicious peanut-butter bars from the oven and prayed a volunteer with a food handlers’ permit would show up. Then I stuffed the canopy, volunteer sign-up, and my three kids into the car and headed over to the Tooele City Park / Pratt Aquatic Center.
Expo volunteers were waiting to help me unload and set up. Rick (Vice Chair) was already there with our banner, “I’m In!” Obama materials and “Save the Stockton Sandbar” sign. Shortly after I finished setting up, Rose (a new Activities Committee volunteer who had come to Monday’s meeting) showed up with a bowl full off blue ribbons and the food handlers’ permit. Kendall Thomas (Activities Committee) also showed up to converse about how we can all work together on saving our sandbar.
By the end, the peanut-butter bars and blue ribbons were gone, the volunteer sign-up had a handful of names on it, and the masses were anxiously anticipating the Stockton Sandbar redistricting meeting at Tooele County Building on October 5th at 7pm.
The food was delicious, the people were friendly and exited to see us, the event was a complete success. Even Republican Senator Daniel Thatcher for SLC & Tooele (see below) stopped by to visit and graciously volunteered to take our picture (shown above).
Thanks again to all of those who made this event a success!
