NACHE Conference

This last weekend we had a booth set up at the Catholic Family Expo in Baltimore. The conference was presented by the National Association of Catholic Home Educators (NACHE), so, as you can imagine, there were a lot of families with a lot of kids running around. When they discovered that the Wash for Life table had both chocolate and 500 bouncy-balls to give away, we became pretty popular!

We were able to tell lots of people about the project. Many took flyers and promised to bring them back to their parish youth leaders. Hopefully these groups will decide to hold car washes.

We were surprised and encouraged to learn that a lot of people had already heard about us! On the first day, one man saw our sign and said, "Oh yeah, the Wash for Life. My parish is doing one of those." Other people mentioned having received emails or mailings about it - not from us, but from someone else. It hasn't even been two months yet since we were really able to start working on this.. It's in the Holy Spirit's hands and He's doing a good job!

All in all, it was a good conference for us. Most of the vendors would have liked there to have been more traffic in the exhibition hall, but we did alright. Our 'neighbors' - Eric from University of Dallas, Bob the K'nex guy, the folks from the Archdiocese of Baltimore, and Joe of Life Values Financial - were fun to talk to. And the daily drives of 1 1/2 hour each way weren't bad, despite John's tendency to sail blissfully past the correct exits..

We'll be posting some pictures shortly, so check back soon..
