Summer Internship Journal: Chloe Tooson, Week 4

June 9, 2014

By Chloe Tooson

Things started to pick up this week at Chene Park. This weekend was very very busy with it being the last week before our shows starts. My main goal for this week has been putting our hospitality book for the dressing rooms together. This book contains restaurants, shopping centers, health and casinos. All together the document is going to be around 50 pages.

The Komen Race For The Cure was held at Chene Park this year and it was quite the experience. Set up began at 4:30 a.m. and the event didn't start until around 8 a.m. It was such an interesting event to be apart of. That was the day that the other intern, Carmen, and I got dubbed the "Twinterns" even though we don't look anything alike. Carmen and I made sure that everyone in the office had what they needed. All of the vendor tables had flyers, and I managed social media along with my intern reporter and Ferris State public relations alumni Candice Fortman.

After a two hour break everyone came back for a Bollywood show. Man do they know how to party! The performance had dancers/flag spinners, and beautiful east indian costumes. Everything was so elaborate and I was so honored to be there for this show. The artist Sonu Nigam was a very talented singer and sure knew how to entertain a crowd.
