A Royal Audience, Ohio Style

August 6, 2012

With everyone occupied by the Olympics, it’s easy to forget that the British aren’t the only folks with royalty. While I was down in Gallipolis, Ohio, visiting HOPE Intervention with our Incredible Human Machine program, some local royalty came out to help with the day.

Abby Hammond (left) and Michaela Hall (right) are two of the Gallia County Fair Princesses competing to become the Gallia County Fair Queen. These two royal ladies came out and helped run a few of our activities for the group of Autistic students and their families that came to the HOPE Family Fun Day. The princesses even rolled up their sashes and helped set-up, tear down and even helped load the truck at the end of the day. You won’t ever see the Queen Mum or Kate Middleton loading up a truck. This week Abby will be showing her goats at the fair while Michaela will be showcasing her seamstress skills.

Thanks again to these American Princesses, Julie Short and all the other volunteers at HOPE Intervention for a great time!
