Thank you BING Design, Brian Housh and the Chamber of Commerce. Bing Design created these great bookmarks using some of my photographs and Brian got them printed, I DID help cut them, phew! They are a wee gift from moi for each YS-Opoly game. 

Press Release
YS-Opoly Pre-Launch “After” Party

YS Brewery, 305 N. Walnut St, Yellow Springs, Ohio
Experience Yellow Springs…Monopoly Style! The Yellow Springs Brewery is hosting a YS-Opoly Pre-Launch “After” Party on Sunday, June 2 from 4-6pm. Show your YS-Opoly Spirit by wearing your official “YS-Opoly Button”  Let the games & festivities continue all afternoon!
The Pre-Launch Party is from 2-4pm at Antioch University Midwest. Enjoy food & fun with YS-Opoly Sponsors, Villagers and an array of VIP guests including Young’s Jersey Cow Barnabe, the YS Schools Bulldog and several of our favorite local musicians including Will C, Ryan Stinson and Warren Kearney (a.k.a. That Uke Guy). Notably, the “Project Peace: Confronting Bullying through Art” student-produced artwork will be on display, and tour the YS Arts Council’s Permanent Collection housed at AUM.
We invite everyone to “BE the Board” with prizes for the best costumes, and enter our “Free Parking” raffle for a chance to win a fabulous prize! One lucky winner will choose a Yellow Springs nonprofit to receive the Free Parking raffle donations. Several local artists and organizations such as the YS Bicycle Enhancement Committee, YS Senior Center, Yoga Springs Studio and Johanna Mosaics will be highlighting their work, and there will be loads of Free Art from around the world to enjoy!
Through a collaborative creative community effort involving over 200 business, organization, family and individual sponsors, Yellow Springs has created a customized Monopoly-themed game representing the true flavor of our cultural oasis, promoting the many wonderful aspects that make YS “Everyone’s Favorite Place.” YS-Opoly maintains the classic feel of the original Monopoly game while embodying the unique character of our Village. Ultimately, YS-Opoly provides a cool experience reflective of personal interactions that Villagers & Visitors have with Yellow Springs.
Welcome to YS-Opoly and the Village of Yellow Springs. Every aspect of this game is uniquely Yellow Springs and tells the story of a community of artists, activists, entrepreneurs, educators and citizens in love with where they live, work and play. People call YS their “Favorite Place” for many reasons. There is something indefinable about this Village and the people who have made and continue to make it the special place it is. You'll learn much about Yellow Springs just by playing YS-Opoly; if you'd like to learn more, visit Play YS-Opoly and have your own YS Experience!
