[sarah] Three Springfields in one day, the most we’ve covered in a single day so far on this trip. Indiana was fun. In Michigan, we got to pose with Jeanette, the municipal finance director. But the best was far and away Ohio. As we stood outside the historic downtown post office we were stopped by not one, not two, but five different people who didn’t just want to say “Good Afternoon” but actually told us that they’d heard about our visit!
Turns out we’d made the cover of the Springfield News-Sun local section from that morning! Our favorite? Hey, I’ve heard about you guys! You’re from Omaha, right?
When they asked, we reminded them that they could easily donate through our website or by sending in a check. And then we got interviewed by Channel 2 WDTN – our second on-camera interview. Before leaving town we made sure to pick up a copy of the paper-and-ink Springfield News-Sun. Thanks for a great afternoon, Ohio!
