For the first time my husband and I went to the PAC 5 Coffee with Council, held in the 2nd Floor Committee Room at Durham City Hall on March 12, 2015. We were unprepared in a number of ways.
The near-carnival atmosphere that greeted us when we entered made us pause and look around…were we in the right place? Food for all, a packed house, a celebratory atmosphere. Why? I'm not sure I ever figured it out. But there were important lessons to be learned.
