After taking the week off during the 4th of July, I was back in the office once again. Because OPC has a heavy presence at the Ohio State Fair, my responsibilities shifted a bit to focus almost primarily on preparing for the fair. This included editing menus, contacting potential volunteers, updating last year’s documents and other tasks. Outside of these tasks, I also attended two meetings with county commissioners. These meetings are set up to establish a relationship between OPC and counties in the Western Lake Erie basin. During the meetings, I began the conversation and then turned it over to to a board member to discuss improvements in the industry, environmental concerns, and more.
