IYC 1985: Friday, July 19th - Macomb, IL - Day 2 of IYC

today was the International Fair. Under the big tent in the Campus Mall were booths from many countries, territories & divisions. At the "giveaway" table I got a photo album & a pair of Foster Grant sunglasses. At the University bookstore I bought a college windbreaker & a Spanish dictionary [so I could talk to my new Argentinian and Paraguayan friends]. Dinner was held outdoors on bales of straw while country-western musicians performed for our Hog Roast. At the evening meeting, titled "Building a New World," Joni Earekson Tada & Tony Campolo spoke. They both waved Army flags while the crowd sang "On We March With the Blood and the Fire." They both gave dynamic messages! It was quite an evening! (Saw the musical Ruth again.)

I believe this was at the musical, Ruth
