PSI gathered at Anderson Public Library this past Saturday, May 13, for our Spring Meet. A huge thanks to Last Stanza Poetry Club for being EXCELLENT hosts! Our theme was "The Comforts of Home," and they certainly played it to the hilt! They served us mounds of delicious homecooked comfort food and decorated with vintage tablecloths and antiques that were alter given away as door prizes. Tom Barmes entertained us with his original songs about his family. Premiere Poet Michael Erdelen handed out envelopes with quotes about the significance of poetry. We opened and read these inspiring messages aloud in turn. Our round robin portion featured family memories. Each member told a story, read a poem, or shared a treasured possession from their family's past.
