Thursday – Day 2
This week is absolutely flying by with so much to do and what seems like so little time. Today, I made it a point to visit the Photo + Story Gallery. I entered the contest when it was first announced and was thrilled when my picture was chosen to be included in the gallery. It doesn’t matter whether I win a prize or not!
I chose my photo of the Calais Women’s Temperance Society summer picnic, c1890.
My photo was displayed on the first wall in the middle of the room.
Right after I arrived in the conference center this morning, Karen, a blogger friend who came all the way from Germany, saw me and said hello. Besides all the learning that happens at RootsTech, the next best thing is the opportunity to meet friends you’ve only known virtually.
Karen, right, and Myself
I didn’t make it to any sessions today, but had a fun time meeting and speaking to many of the new companies exhibiting for the first time at RootsTech. I’ll have a full report on those I visited, but today, I’d like to give you a firsthand look at the Expo Hall sights – and some are really sights to see!
This is just a small taste of what just part of one day at RootsTech 2018 looks like.
