Here’s our dedicated crew out early at the Mum Festival in Bristol, Connecticut on Saturday, ready to greet the people and tell everyone about the joy and wonder of Youth Journalism International.
That’s Kiernan Majerus-Collins, Mary Majerus-Collins and Steve Collins behind the booth.
We’ve got some cool YJI props and a few little gifts for donors. Those are mums out front on the ground, in case you’re unfamiliar with the city’s signature flower.
In the background, people are inflating a hot air balloon. Unfortunately for us, the drizzle started and the balloon was put away before we could get a ride.
Not long after the balloon departed, the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful day at the festival.
We’ll be back again on Sunday, with more YJI students and alumni, so if you are in the neighborhood, please stop by to say hello!
