We left two hours early on Friday to drive to Dayton so to stop at the Air Force Museum just a few miles from the stake center for the workshop. It would have been so fun for our family, now all grown up to hear their Dad/Grandpa talk about all the bits and pieces of the many many airplanes he has helped generate over the years at Boeing, Air Research, Garret, Allied Signal & Honeywell for these beautiful amazing airplanes. It was obvious that Elder Hoopes could not be in Dayton without visiting this museum.
Workshops for areas outside of our Detroit Center are on weekends. Friday times are from 6:30 until 10:00 p.m. Saturday is from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm. It was my first time to do interviews. Imagine me, doing interviews. Very foreign for me but was fun. We record the interviews, and on Saturday review them with the group. #1 the group gives positive feedback, #2 the interviewee is asked what he or she liked about it, #3 the interviewee is asked what he or she thinks should be improved #4 the group is asked for any helpful feedback of what could be improved. This all goes well because the discussion first is that "feedback is a gift". When it is accepted as only one person's reality. Then the interviewed person receiving the feedback writes it all down and uses it as they choose.
The week after the workshop we received word that one attendee that Elder Hoopes stayed and visited with one-on-one after the workshop, was inspired and used the lessons and feedback and was hired.
On our way home from the workshop we were in route to see Anna's family who had driven three days to vacation in Ohio with Laura.
