What kind of hat do you wear?

RTC breakfast

Pete Moore from the Ohio Association of County Boards leads a demonstration during the RTC Employer Appreciation Breakfast this week hosted by the Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Mr. Moore asked participants to consider which color hat they wear in life. He gave the example that people who are indifferent wear a white hat, negative folks wear a black hat, and red hats are for the forceful. He challenged everyone in the room to instead put on a green hat by sharing kind words and useful ideas and building positive relationships. The annual breakfast thanks the dozens of workplaces in Logan County that employ local residents with developmental disabilities. Each business was recognized and was presented with a certificate. Tables at the breakfast featured a special binder detailing the life and interests of several clients and their occupations. (PHOTO | LCBDD)
