from Victoria with CWG: Catholic Charities has now asked Us if we can officially adopt Marcos Antonio Bautista Vasquez for almost an entire week. We have been asked to entertain him from Sunday October 26th at noon, bring him back for a 2 hour school talk on Wednesday afternoon, reconnect with us and have us return him in time for Mass Sunday morning November 2nd.
The Us really is the entirety of the Northeastern Ohio Weavers community. We are planning gatherings throughout Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Medina, and Loraine counties. Any member of Us is welcome to attend any of the planned events. Point people in each guild or community will be in charge of their parts of the plan, but contact information will be easily available to anyone interested in attending any function or gathering.
We have plans for a trip to CMA with a fluently Spanish docent available Friday or Saturday. We have hopes to arrange a trip to the Kent Museum for the Tapestry exhibit. Mention has been made of a Finnish display up in Fairport Harbour and the Century Village in Burton. Oberlin will keep him into Monday night into Wednesday afternoon if allowed and Betsy Bruce is dilligantly planning things at the college we may all be welcome to atttend. Marcos will have a warped loom, so demonstrations are all over the plan.
We will have to feed him, so potlucks seem the best way to gather a dozen or so to enjoy a meal without having to talk or listen over a bunch of uninterested strangers.
We have less than a week to get this arranged before the young man arrives in our fair town. Please contact me if you can host a potluck meal or want to play along in any way.
Catholic Charities would like a copy of our schedule by Friday (today!) I may have to play fast and loose with the finite details. Maybe I’ll just tell them “It’s ok. He’s with Us”
