Spot us at Spring Jefferson!

Tomorrow, I'll be heading down to the Spring Jefferson Car Show and Swap Meet, one of the harbingers of spring in the upper Midwest. Be sure to catch me out there -- I will put out Iola Old Car Show posters, free issues of OCW and more on the publications/flyers table at the event's main building. You'll probably see me behind the lens of my camera, shooting pics and covering the event for OCW, too.
