[Lucy Burick, an 8th grader at North Canton Middle School, participated in the Canton Dreamoratory last summer. We asked Lucy a few questions about her experience. We are thrilled that she is joining us again this summer!]
TomTod: The Dreamoratory is awesome because…
Lucy: The Dreamoratory is awesome because you can learn so many new and interesting things. Another reason it is awesome is because there is no limit to where you can use your imagination. The Dreamoratory also lets you explore the world around you.
TT: What did you learn about Canton throughout the week?
Lucy: There was a lot that I learned about Canton throughout the week. First, is that on Cherry Ave there used to be an abundance of shops, it was a very small community. I also learned about what the Lighthouse organization and how they help kids over the summer and after school. Plus, I learned that there are community gardens in Canton!
TT: What was your highlight from the week?
Lucy: My highlight from the week was going to the Onesto Hotel. It was amazing to see what Steve Coon had done. The architecture inside the hotel was phenomenal. Though going into the elevators was a little scary, it made the trip up to the top floor worth it. There was a beautiful view of Canton.
