Bob Wood, A Conversation with Ukraine
 
Bob is a retired Social Studies teacher from Oakridge High School.  He has visited 26 major league baseball stadiums and has written and published the book DODGER DOGS TO FENWAY FRANKS.
 
This past fall Bob spent five weeks volunteering in Ukraine.  He travelled by himself and put himself "to use" wherever he could:  working in warehouses, delivering humanitarian supplies, and teaching courses at a university.  Bob recorded many videos of Ukranian citizens who were asked to answer questions which he gathered from his friends and acquaintances in Michigan.  Those videos can be seen at youtube.com/bobwoodmsu1980.
 
Bob is currently working on establishing a 501 C-3.  He plans to return to Ukraine in late January or February 2023.  He will be speaking about his experiences in Ukraine at the Loutit Library on January 9, 2023, and at the Muskegon Public Library on January 26, 2023.
