Six or seven years after doing more than 50 oral history interviews, ohoberlin is being repurposed to serve as a public journal for my Spring 2021 internship toward my Public Administration degree at Lorain County Community College. Thanks to the Oberlin Recreation Department (for which I also sit on the city’s commission), I am interning with the purpose of finding out the social and recreational needs of seniors in the city for their purpose of identifying how the city might engage those needs.
This week I interviewed Oberlin resident Gina Makris. Some context. She references IGA. I work at IGA. She mentions my father a couple times. Sid Comings, by name, he can be frequently seen around town walking or biking.
Know anyone who might have an important take on social, recreational or other needs of senior citizens in Oberlin? Send them my way: firstname.lastname@example.org.
