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.

He looks pretty intense. Any indication as to what he is staring at so intently?

Perhaps his stare is out of shock from having a ribbon enter his mouth and shoot out the back of his head.

hey just wanted to let you know I enjoyed your package on the mom and her two boys- i pimped it on my new education blog twitter account, @ydblogwork.

Hope you have a good rest of your summer! The new intern isn't very talkative. Borrrring.
