D1 got to attend her first official government proceeding last night, as DOB took us down to introduce us to the Marion Township Trustees. (Townships are an aspect of government I had never encountered in pre-Ohio days. Why people need yet another governing body I'm still not quite clear on, but I think the theory is it keeps power from accumulating so much in the counties.) She made no disturbances--although since the meeting was conducted with rather less formality than a Rotary meeting, and most of the members were proud grandparents, I don't think it would have mattered if she did. She was duly entered into the minutes.
