I'm hoping someone would like to step up and be an assistant organizer for this group-its neither here nor there but the economy changed my um, work situation, and I was forced to take a retail management job at a Big Box store which means my weekends havent been all that free. As such I missed scheduling a whole lot of festivals this summer I wanted to have the group attend. I've just re-upped for another 6 months and see no reason I won't do it again in 6 months, so Im hoping someone might step up and be willing to be the organizer and go to person for those weekend events I cant make it to.
As the summer comes to an end I'll be scheduling a few events coming up and would like any suggestions for ideas.
Meet diverse people to satisfy your curiosity about any specific culture or multiple-cultural interest. The goal is to have all world cultures, as well as regional ones around the U.S, made available to or be represented by members,. Through simply getting together over dinner, at movies, seeing live music or visiting the many neighborhoods or festivals in NE Ohio the group just wants to make available for its members the kinds of culture we might not run across in our normal day. If it fosters a bit of understanding of the world outside NE Ohio for us, then more the better. But at least let's check out some of the variety this region has to offer.
