Excuses us. If you would like to know even more about that and see a picture of that event, you can go over to our craft sales tent and we may have a few copies of Jack's book left. You'll find the picture, I don't remember the page.

Okay, I'd like to make a couple of announcements.
For our deaf visitors, we'd love to have you share your stories with us. If you could go over to our other tent we have a video tape crew from Gallaudet College.

They're working to make a collection of stories by deaf people; life stories, jokes, anecdotes for the Gallaudet archives and would be glad to interview you over there at any time.

Also, we will be having a volunteer interpreter for the deaf-blind at this festival, during the next three days if you have any friends who would like to take advantage of that service.

So please if you have a deaf-blind friend, tell me, tell one of our staff and well get that interpreter here for them. Okay thank you all very much.
