We’ve just received this photo and a note, transcribed below, from Novella about her visit to Kalamazoo...
Thanks again for the good times in Kalamazoo!
What I really loved about K:
1. It felt like home; everyone there was so welcoming and down to earth. It was like meeting old friends.
2. Conversation. You guys know how to ask questions, be honest, and you all are so curious! It’s an amazing & rare thing these days.
3. Places that matter. I was only in ‘Zoo for one night but got to experience a lot—the Food Co-op, Tabitha Garden and the Art Museum/KIA, and the food trucks on the square, and of course, the Library and K College campus—these are all awesome, beautiful, functional, fun, accessible places where the town can grow and thrive.
Anyway, I had a blast—thanks for the opportunity and I’m telling my friends about Kalamazoo!
Love, Novella (and Franny)
