   Thank you for publishing Joy of Medina County Magazine. Reading allows the person to immerse themselves into the article. The “Oh, Snap!” story in the June (2020) edition, along with providing links to the audio, really transported the reader into a quiet backyard listening to the birds and squirrels. To be able to get this feeling of calm is especially important today, with all the anxiety and tension present in our daily lives. Thanks again for sharing this with us. -- Rob Ziemkiewicz
