And, by all indications, a very good one and well attended.
WION interviewed 15 Expo exhibitors, and had many more as "Expo Week" sponsors on the air, and our thanks goes out to them for helping spread the word of this "rite of spring."
The Expo is a huge effort, and without the Ionia Public Schools to host, Michigan One Community Credit Union, and the Ionia Area Chamber all working cooperatively, it would not be the huge event it is today. Please contact Maureen Meade of Ionia Schools, Tim Hemmenway at M1CCU or leave a message with the Ionia Chamber to say, "thank you" if you will...they work very hard to make the Expo happen.
Is it a rite of Spring? It comes on the eve of Daylight Saving Time, (which had me up early checking on the many computers that run WION in our absence to make sure they moved properly) and....the early part of this week has a warmer forecast. Let's hope we have escaped the brunt of winter and can think warmer weather is just around the corner.
Helen Cook of Portland was the winner of our Logitech Internet radio on Saturday, and we congratulate her, as her name was drawn from the hundreds of entries....spun in the big hopper at our WION booth, just as Expo got set to close.
We're taking our microphones to the Lowell Expo next, in two weeks, and we hope you'll come over and learn more about Lowell's businesses, and enjoy our broadcast from there....with Liz Baker of the Lowell Chamber, our host.
