Just about a month ago Jillian was here in our community. She is doing a special presentation about Native Americans and had chosen a family here in this community as her subjects.
The day this picture was taken, the people in the community had planned a welcome event for her and the camera crew. I came to the event which was at the local park, and waited for her to arrive. The family that was chosen was there also and asked us all to welcome them. There was food to be served but I wasn't planning to stay long to eat. After the speech I went right up to her and hugged her and my sister took a picture and then I left. Sorry guys it wasn't a big hoopla meeting but I just wanted a picture.
The rest of the story, is that she upset quite a few people because she threw out a whole box of freshly cooked bread. I agree that it was not healthy food but someone had taken the time to cook it and she didn't have to eat it if she didn't want to.
Anyway Jillian and the crew were here about a week and had even done a community health walk, but I was busy that day and didn't make it. But next month Jillian is scheduled to come back for more filming and updates on the chosen family. Also there is some Native cultural events happening, so maybe then I will get to really meet her then.
