Fifth Anniversary of OSI
On April 22, 2010, the spring leaves were brilliant and the sap was running full, a wonderful match to the spirit of One Square Inch as we celebrated its Fifth Anniversary on Earth Day. This milestone occurred live on NPR with Jane Clayson for On Point. Americans in 175 different cities sent a landslide of support. Additional coverage occurred on AOL , New York Times, and NPR’s To the Best of Our Knowledge.
Prior to this event the Board of Directors met for a hike to One Square Inch followed by new business. Kenya DeBois received the new title of Communications Director. Sean Owen was elected to the Board and named Finance Director. We also have a dedicated and inspired young man, Steven Broom, a 15 year old high school student from Chehalis, Washington, who is now serves our Youth Volunteer Coordinator. Jean Waight now serves as Operations Manager. Welcome, Jean, Sean and Steven. We look forward to our future together!
One Square Inch continues to attract attention from visitors around the world. Celebrated globe trotter, Flat Stanley, visited the Stone that marks One Square Inch of Silence in the Hoh Valley with travel arrangements by Pattison Elementary School in Milford, Ohio.
