When I got there I was told which room we were going to meet in, it was a very large open room with a stage and lots of people having a good time. We had some space sectioned off from the rest of the crowd and some women were setting out food and it was really, really noisy. The instructor realized that it would be impossible to give a talk so he suggested we eat first then go back to the class room for my talk. No problem, looking at all that food was making me hungry.

As they were setting up the lunch someone started playing some music and the crowd started singing along making up new words to celebrate President Obama's victory on Tuesday. I looked around the room and saw that a line dance had formed and people were singing and dancing even if they needed a walker to help. That kind of celebration just makes you smile.
My hour long talk was shortened to about 15 minutes but stretched to 20 because of the questions and answers. It was a great visit, I hope to be invited back.
