Salem girl meets new President

Salem girl meets Obama

This past summer my daughter and I were at the Iris Festival in Keizer and Barrack Obama made an unexpected surprise stop on his campaign tour. We just so happened to be in the “right place at the right time” and got a chance to me him personally. We were unaware that a photographer from CNN was touring with Obama and captured the most adorable shot of her shaking his hand. My daughter, who is in second grade, was so excited about his victory last night and took the picture to show and tell today to tell her class she has meet our new president.
