I receive notices of or invitations to a lot of events, and it would be impossible to attend all of them. Occasionally people or organizations who have invited me to events will follow up and let me know how they went.
Here are a few recent reports from the field:
Last Thursday President Obama's re-election campaign opened their Philadelphia office. According to follow-up emails over 600 people attended. Senator Anthony Williams spoke. Photos are available online.
This past Saturday SEPTA held its annual Rail Rodeo. From the press release:
Each year SEPTA Market-Frankford Line and Broad Street Line operators, Regional Rail engineers and conductors and yard motorpersons form teams to participate in various tests of operational and mechanical skill on SEPTA’s trains. The competition is tough and top teams will represent the Authority at the 2012 International Rail Rodeo in Dallas.
Today Abington Township (Montco) Commissioner sponsored a "Flourishing in Challenging Times" event. A steady steam of people visited, stopping at tables with information from smoking cessation programs, PECO (energy efficiency), local colleges and businesses, and others.
