Most of us look forward toholiday dinners, with specialdishes and sweet desserts.We appreciate the changefrom our normal meals andenjoy the company of familymembers and friends whomight not always be thereto share our dinners. Theholidays are a good timeto indulge a bit more thanusual, with foods that reallyremind us of home and fam-ily.For Peter Blank, thisyear’s holiday dinner wasan exceptionally memorableone. The meats, potatoes andsalads he ate at his parents’table were a far cry fromthe guinea pig he has beeneating on a regular basis forthe last 15 months. He washome in Sylvania from his
Peace Corps work in Peru,
where he is part of a commu-nity-based EnvironmentalManagement Program. Heand other volunteers work intandem with local Peruviansto develop and implementprojects to promote threemain goals: natural resourcemanagement, solid wastemanagement and environ-mental education. They allreceived three months of training in the language,cross-cultural understandingand the technical informa-tion they would need to dothe job. The training alsoincluded techniques on suc-cessful volunteering such asclass room management andworking as a facilitator.Blank is half-way throughhis period of service. Helives in a rural communityof 1,000 people, all of themfarmers. He lives with a localfamily, with whom he sharesmeals, household chores andstories. Their home is in theAndes Mountains in a spotthat lies beneath the highestpeak in Peru.How does a Sylvania boyend up eating guinea pig inPeru? For Blank, it startedwhen he was a junior atMiami University study-ing International Studies,History and Spanish. Hespent a semester studyingin Spain and accompanieda group from St. Francis deSales High School (his almamater) on a summer servicetrip to Honduras. He saysnow that both experiencesopened his mind to the com-bination of living abroad andvolunteerism.“When I returned home,”he recalls, “I started think-ing how most college juniors do: ‘What now?’ Ihad heard about the Peace
Corps through some of my
International Studies coursesand heard a talk from a cam-pus recruiter describing what
the Peace Corps is and does.
And that’s when I found thewinning combination of liv-ing abroad and volunteer-ism that I had been looking
for. Peace Corps provides
an amazing opportunity for
the volunteer: uency in a
language, the chance to trulylive in a culture vastly dif-ferent than our own, developinterpersonal skills and most
importantly, nd that sense
of service that comes fromvolunteer work in general.To me this was it; I start-ed my application the fallof my senior year (2008).After the tedious applica-tion process, I was accepted
into the Community Based
Environmental ManagementProgram in Peru. It soundedenticing enough to me andI jumped into the two yearadventure, not looking backsince.”His current project is a“Healthy Homes” projectwith 25 community familiesthat includes trash manage-ment, organic fertilizer sys-tems, nutrition and hygieneclasses and the implementa-tion of an improved cook
stove that is more efcientand healthy, using less re
-wood and taking out thesmoke with a chimney. Hehas done a variety of other jobs as well, including thedevelopment of a communi-ty-wide trash collection ser-vice, teaching Environmentand English classes, install-ing native species treesand offering AIDS preven-tion and Sexual Educationcourse.He explains, “The‘job’ changes every day.Describing a typical day
would be difcult. It could
be helping harvest potatoesby hand in the rural Andesmountains, playing in a local
folklore band, nally get
-ting to read such classics as
 Les Miserables
and
War and Peace
, walking down thestreet and having childrenand adults alike call out yourname, seeing people throwaway trash in newly installedgarbage cans or getting toeat
cuy
(guinea pig) on aregular basis. It’s tough tosay what the “best” part is,because it is more than a job.I love it all! It is life, and the‘job’ is what you make of it.You need to work closelywith your community andsee what they want and trulyneed. Once you have an ideaof that you get creative andthink of ways to accomplishthings and incorporate thecommunity members, whichis the most important aspect
of Peace Corps. The vol
-unteer is only there for twoyears and the hope is thatthese projects are sustainableand can remain intact afterwe leave.”There have been chal-lenges but not what onemight expect. Blank reports,“The biggest challenge Ihave experienced has beena cultural one. Here in theStates, if a meeting starts at4 pm, people are consideredlate if they show up at 3:55.
 La hora peruana
isn’t asstrict. You can be “on time”if you arrive 30 minuteslate, an hour or two late andsometimes not at all! Thatcan be challenging whenyou schedule your classesand meetings. But hey, thereis always more time, no needto rush things.”He notes that he haslearned a great number of things about himself, aboutthe concept of wealth andabout the differences and sur-prising similarities betweenAmerican and Peruvian cul-ture. Most importantly, hehas learned “that peopleare people at the end of theday, whether they live in anadobe house as a Peruvianfarmer or a brick house asan American investmentbanker. We have more incommon than some mightthink.”
When his term is nished
in November, 2011, Blankwill spend some time totravel, and get reacquaint-ed with friends and family.He would like to return toschool and pursue a career inInternational Developmentand Relations. For now, hesays, “I am more than con-tent living and serving as
a Peace Corps volunteer in
Peru.”

Many of us get booksfor holiday gifts, andSylvania native BobGoldyn was no excep-tion this year. His giftwasn’t a book that hecould read; it was a bookhe had written, and hehad the bonus of see-ing his book for sale onamazon.com. The SanDiego-based architect iswatching on-lines salesof his book,
Spacemakingas Human Experience
:
 Binding Light and Shadow to Architecture
,which started out as hismaster’s thesis for aMaster of Architecturedegree at the University
of Cincinnati’s College
of DAAP (Design,Architecture, and Artand Planning).He explained howthe online deal cameto be. “In college, wewere given one and ahalf years for researchand writing of our thesis,and then the remainingtime to design and createa project based on thatthesis. I looked at archi-tecture and all the artswith human experienceas the focus, then lookedat light and shadow andhow they were used tocreate human experienc-es.”Goldyn had sever-al offers to publish hiswork from publisherswho had seen his workon OHIOLINK, but hecharacterizes those over-tures as ‘scams.’ “Theyasked me to pay themmoney, and they wouldpublish my work. It wasmuch like the ‘you couldbe a model’ scams. In
New York City, several
people always told me,‘You could be a model,’and then they ask youto come to their studio,they give you some all-day classes, take yourphotos, and send you outin the market, they justneed $2000 to get start-ed. It is pretty much youpay them and they makemoney from you.”“But, then a Germanpublisher LAP--LambertAcademic Publishing—contacted me and saidthey were interested inreviewing my work andworking with me to pub-lish. All I had to do waswork with them, performsome small edits andrevisions for formattingand marketing, and theywould do all the market-ing and publishing, anddisperse royalties in myaccount a couple timesa year. I spent a coupleweeks on the edits, sentit in for review, and thebook was published in acouple weeks, much fast-er than anyone expect-ed. We signed contractsand I am ready to go.The book is really likea monograph, so it israther expensive (listprice $70), but it is anacademic title.”Goldyn brought plentyof hands-on experienceto his architecture stud-ies. He worked as an
intern in several rms (inSan Diego, Charleston,SC, and San Francisco)
and studied at Ecole’sD’Art Americaines DeFountainebleau-BeauxArts in France while a
student at UC. He livedand worked in NYC for
two years and movednearly three years ago toSan Diego, where he is a
 junior designer for RJC
Architects. He is pursuinghis architecture licenseand expects to have allhis exams wrapped up bymid-April.He returns to Sylvaniaoften to visit his parentsFred and Miriam Goldyn,his siblings and their chil-dren. He makes it a pointto visit local restaurants,
noting, “California has
wonderful Mexican food,but nobody has Lebanesefood like Toledo does.When I arrive here, we gostraight from the airportto the Beirut Restaurant,where my mom works.We don’t even go home!You can’t beat thatfood!”Goldyn is a 1999graduate of St. Francisde Sales High School.
Sylvania native Bob Goldyn, a 1999 graduate of St.Francis, wrote a book about architecture.

Written by: Sharon Amberg, Editor, Toledo Jewish News
With a passion to teach the gift of glass creation to others, Ellen Rubin decided to opena home art studio/school last year after teaching in the Toledo Public School system for 25years. According to Ellen, a gifted glass artist, anyone of any age or experience level can cre-ate these fun and affordable glass pieces in her studio. “You don’t have to be good at art,” saysEllen. “The glass comes out beautiful every time and you cannot make a mistake!” Ellen helpsthroughout the entire process and the glass that you work with is not hot.Recently, a woman who regularly attends her classes told Ellen that she never had a hobby
until she began attending the classes during the past year. She said that it is relaxing, fullling
and that it has “actually changed her life.” Some students attend a special four-hour drop-in
class ($20 fee includes supplies and ring) to see if they would like glass fusing, while others
make plans to spend a 12-hour day in Ellen’s serene and peaceful home studio, located on thelower level of her home. There is even a cozy area within the studio designed for bringing inand enjoying lunch or coffee.
Ellen is certied to teach Special Education for Kindergarten-12th Grade. She also has a
Bachelor Degree in Art Education and Art Therapy and a Master’s Degree in Art Education and
Glass. In addition, she took private oil painting lessons for ve years and has written a uniquereference book on advanced techniques of fusing glass, available for viewing at the Center for
Visual Arts Library at the Toledo Museum of Art.According to Ellen, “My home is my art gallery with an eclectic mix of glassworks of all
kinds. I have created many art pieces for exhibit at the Toledo Museum of Art, various out-of-state galleries and shows, and I participate in art shows, selling my creations from time to
time.”
Ellen will also make special accommodations that she calls “Art-on-a-Cart” which is a class
for groups or individuals that are unable to come to her home studio. She takes her portablestudio to hospitals, pre-schools, assisted living centers, rehabilitation centers and more.
Ellen adds with an enthusiastic smile, “I love to teach and I just wanted to be able to make
glass creating affordable and available to everyone.”For rates and more information, please contact Ellen at 419-699-2215or visit www.ellensglassact.com.
