A traditional town Independence Day parade. Thanks to all!
Shout out to Allen Anderson, Jim Morgan, Judy Rigby, Ramona Porter, Mariah Morgan Campbell who put in the bulk of the time. Also a big thanks to the two Daves who loaned the museum the truck, trailer, and fabulous buggy! Thanks to the kids of Mariah, Ryan Ward, Cara Morgan Trujillo, Tim Allen Hodges, and Trish Duncan, and to our volunteer Sarah Wittwer, all of whom braved the heat with cheer and bravado – the parents, too! A nod to the Kaysville-Fruit Heights Museum of History & Art board which contributed time and money.
DID YOU KNOW that $200 worth of donations will only purchase enough bulk candy to make it around the corner onto Main Street? The next float you see distributing candy at the end of the route with candy to spare spent a bundle! Thank them! We will ask for contributions next time – unless RAMP passes and we get some program funding.
Happy 4th of July and much gratitude to our patriot forerunners. And thankfulness to the suffragists in Kaysville whose effort made it possible for women to vote and keep our freedoms. WooHoo to #BetterDays2020 for making it possible to celebrate two years in a row. Another nod to my Great Grandma Winnie Hyde, a native Kaysville citizen, whose dress Sarah is wearing. And, might as well remember Amazon who rushed us costumes and suffrage-colored decorations right to our front doors.
Hope you were lucky enough to get a star from a retired U.S. flag or a kit made by volunteers. Your service projects are awesome, Duncans, as usual!
