The Mastermind

This post is in honor of my last ribbon cutting assignment in York PA.

It was a rather unique event. St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church got a new elevator. They held a ribbon cutting
ceremony that included a few tears from participants, elevator rides and a cake decorated to look like the new contraption,
(complete with a red frosting bow.) Instead of having the usual PR agent, I got to learn about the details of the event from
Lavern Brenneman, pictured above. He helped create the event, is an enthusiast for St. Matthew's renovations and is a treasurer
and co-chair for the church's capitol campaign. He came prepared for my arrival with a handwritten press release containing
the four names of those who would be involved in the ceremony.

Philadelphia's Magic Gardens

In the south side of Philly, a building and neighboring vacant lot were converted into one giant mosaic. 
I was visually overwhelmed by my visit, to say the least.
