I've got to say that Friday afternoon's Homecoming parade was about the best I've seen --- two bands, royalty, floats, lots of class reunion groups, honored citizens and, of course, fire trucks, rescue vehicles, big tractors, big trucks and lots of other stuff.
And I didn't do it justice, but it was darned cold, too; I was cold, the camera was cold and I was operating under instructions to focus on four specific entries. But here are a few snapshots anyway
There was a color guard and the high school marching band, including ...
One very happy drummer.
Old Betsy, of course.
Lots of enthusiasm.
Lots of floats.
A wicked witch who was having issues with the wind.
The Class of 1964 (and several others).
Chamber/Main Street citizen of the year Christopher Watkins.
Chamber/Main Street humanitarian of the year Bonnie Stone.
Chamber/Main Street lifetime achievement honoree Mary Stierwalt.
Little St. Nick and Little Miss Merry Christmas 2013.
And bringing up the end, the most diminutive entry of all.
