For the past year (or more), Oliver’s been focused intensely on October 1, 2018, the day he turns 18 years old and becomes an adult.
A big part of this has involved organizing a birthday party that includes people that have been a part of his life to date. What we’ve discovered this week is that’s a lot of people: schoolmates, daycare workers, teachers, farmers’ market vendors, politicians, childhood friends, and the doula that was there at the very moment of his birth.
We’ve rented the St. Paul’s Parish Hall for the evening, organized a meal of vegetarian chili, and booked a cross-section of musical acts that have touched on Oliver’s life.
It promises to be a barn-burner of an event. If your life has overlapped with Oliver’s and somehow the reach of his invitation blanket had missed you, please come.
