More Sights and Sounds of Civic Fest
I'm going home tomorrow. I'm glad. I need to get back to my torch and make beads. I'm glad I volunteered to be a part of Civic Fest. It was tiring. I'm exhausted, but I'm still glad. I thought I'd end this series with more of the sights that were available to enjoy. This is not all of them, by any means. This is just a sampling of what I saw.
Presidential memories were available in abundance. These were some of the memorabilia from President Bush's campaign.
To be politically balanced, here are some memorabilia from Bill Clinton's campaign.
In the same area were samples of Presidential entertaining. Look at these beautiful dishes from the Bush White House!
Now, here's a dining room table set and ready for guests.
I would love to be a guest for dinner using this table!
Outside of the White House is a small sample of the Rose Garden. I only wish you could smell the fragrance of the roses. Wow!
Now, as we move away from the White House, there was an exhibit with this beautiful eagle. I was amazed at how calm she was and how close I was able to get to her. Her trainer was excellent, and you could sense the bond between them.
At another part of the exhibit was this eagle's nest. I was amazed at how big it was! I only wish you could see something to give you an idea of the size of this nest!
One of the fun things to do at Civic Fest was to go to the "Oval Office" and sign a bill into law. I did it! Here's the photo. You can see I was busy on the phone!
If ever I can figure out how to put the video of me being "sworn into office," I will do it. However, we tried last night and could not do it. That was something you could do and was sponsored by C-Span.
There were many more sights and sounds of Civic Fest. I wish I had room to show them all. I'm glad I was able to participate. However, I am really looking forward to going home tomorrow. It will be good. I have a little bit more to show you about my adventures with Civic Fest. I'll do that tomorrow, and, who knows? You might be able to see a video, too. We'll see.
