Bill Wood, Eldora Hoover, and Their Famous Friend

BY JEFFERY SCHIELKE
@ VOL 6 ON FEB 16, 2017

Jeffery Schielke, longtime mayor and local historian of Batavia, Illinois, shared his reflections on Batavia’s well-known educators, Eldora Hoover and Bill Wood, their collection of crosses, and their interest in Japanese customs and traditions. In their search for supplies for the Japanese tea ceremony, Eldora and Bill discovered a store in Chicago owned by Jun Toguri and his daughter, Iva. As their friendship grew, Iva revealed the story of an American citizen trapped in Japan during World War II—her story. Once called Tokyo Rose, she was imprisoned in the United States for treason. Ultimately, President Gerald R. Ford granted a full and unconditional pardon to Iva Toguri, which restored her U.S. citizenship.

From Siberia to Texas: Uncovering My Family’s Immigration Story One Recipe at a Time

BY MARY KALTENBERG
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Mary Kaltenberg best introduces her story herself:

"It started during a blizzard storm the first week I arrived back in the United States early 2016. As an activity for my mom and I during this cold snowy day, we gathered recipes and started compiling them into a cohesive cookbook. I asked questions about the origination of the recipe and through each recipe lived a different story. Translating and transcribing developed into a documentation of our family history, rich of funny, suspenseful and adventurous stories. One recipe at a time I uncovered the story of my Jewish, Russian, Polish family - how they became a family, survived in Siberia, were deported and stripped of citizenship and the humor of eventually adapting to American culture."

Engaging Citizens with PechaKucha

PechaKucha used as a best practice for citizenship engagement? That's what happened in Vancouver. 5.Tell Stories – Storytelling can be effective in bringing together a diverse group of people to share experiences in how to improve community. Storytelling can be used to peak citizen interest in an issue and access local wisdom that other methods struggle to access. Storytelling can involve many different kinds of communication—for example, the City of Vancouver partnered with a highly popular monthly “PechaKucha” event to launch the Greenest City 2020 Conversation and the TalkGreentoUs.Ca website. The Pecha Kucha event brought together 13 local change-makers to speak on the subject of Vancouver’s effort to become the Greenest City in the World by 2020. It not only had the largest attendance of any city engagement event in Vancouver’s history, but it also particularly brought new people and demographics into the conversation.
