August 5th, Friday night, proved to be a great night at the Captains’ Ballpark in Eastlake…it did not rain, a soft breeze was blowing over the ballpark, the Hungarians were well-represented, and the Captains won the ballgame in extra innings!! During the game the Museum hosted many children as we painted faces with Magyar folk motifs, but we also painted names on arms and cheeks written in ancient Hungarian runic letters called “rovás írás”. A special shout-out to the Magyar Club of Fairport Harbor who arrived in matching t-shirts! It was wonderful working with our Mary Jane Molnár who was wearing her hat as president of the Hungarian Cultural Center of Northeast Ohio and Richard Sárosi who is on the Board of the William Penn organization. Our three organizations have been a part of this event for many years. To see the Magyar colors on the stadium’s jumbotron screen as we sang the Hungarian National Anthem was a particularly moving moment.
