Our small on-campus group met on Monday afternoon. To give you a very quick update: we are checking availability of the Great Hall in the McDaniel Center on Sunday afternoon, September 18, for a "family-day/pinwheel/origami crane-making event from 2 to 5 p,m, and availability on Wednesday, September 21, from 5 to 7 or 8 p.m. For the pinwheels for peace "Peace Fair-type" event that could be help outside in the Quad if weather permits.
Jennifer Long, one of the leaders of our group, has asked that we hold off on another meeting with the full group until mid-April after our presidential inauguration, which includes a week of events on campus, and our annual "Love, Not Hate" event, which Jennifer organizes.
Our group now includes an adjunct faculty member in justice studies who worked last year at OCCC last year when that school participated in the pinwheels for peace events that occurred at UCO.
So, just wanted to let you know that we are moving forward and have identified student groups that we will ask to help with this project. We really hope that the students will take the lead as much as possible as our understanding is that this should be a student & art teacher led event to honor its origins, right? I think that is how you started our first meeting on this.
I will ask Diana to set a next meeting on our campus for mid-April and will send you a list of our organizers. I'll also draft the letter of support as soon as I hear about the availability of our facilities.
Hope this all helps.
Oh, and I love the sketch!
