Saturday was a day for sharing smiles and hugs. Pockets the clown got to make silly balloon animals at the Palace Theatre for “Light up the city” and it’s aways fun to meet new people. The children were out in force to sample the delights of the season, from breakfast with Santa , “The Polar Express” on the big screen, to a tree-lighting finale and I’m proud of all the parents who bundled up the kids, despite the windy chill, to share old-fashioned fun. Organizers and volunteers did an amazing job of providing a fun kick-start to the holidays.
Later on, at the benefit for Faith Moore, it was standing room only as musicians rocked the house and friends gathered to support Faith. The turnout was amazing and the show of love is just an example of the really caring community we live in. There were folks there from all the neighboring communities; a real gathering of friends. Faith did come home from the hospital on Friday after a bout with pneumonia, but was not able to attend the benefit. Our prayers are with her!
