Can't we just buy something as a donation?

"June 12th and 13th"? Well, I missed out on this one.

Mr. Eckleburg, I’ve never posted a comment here before, but since I did post the photos andRead Morey our reaction was (to be respectful, just silly), I felt I needed to respond. First of all, the “major road” was closed from 9:30 – 11am. It was originally supposed to be on the 4th of July, but was moved to the 5th due to weather conditions. I really don’t think hoards of shoppers would have been out between those times on the 4th or even the day after a major holiday. Is it that imperative to get office supplies from Staples on School Street within that short time span on a Saturday morning? And the other shopping centers past the middle school can easily be reached by other routes. So do you suggest our Veterans should only be honored in a VFW parking lot, or our children’s sports teams in their field lots or Saint Patrick’s Day celebrated in the lot where the Hibernians meet because you need to shop at the precise time those events are happening ? Perhaps you can’t identify with the joy and fun a parade brings to a community for both adults and children, as well as the thrill for those marching in the parade. I posted those photos to show the wide variety of children in our community coming together to have fun. And because you can’t (directly) get to your store of choice for 90 minutes, you want to banish a tradition that has gone on for years to a parking lot? We’re talking about 5 or less times a year. Mr. Eckleburg , I suggest you attend a parade and pay close attention to the faces, especially the children’s, and maybe then you can wait until noon to shop.

They are very nice photos, Steve. You did a wonderful job.

Thank you TJ. I appreciate the compliment. I actually did a weekly "around town" photoRead Mores eries for The Patch for a year when I first moved here. So when I finally had time to cover an event after so long, I didn't expect to see your comment as a reaction to posting photos again. I just want to share the details people may have missed if they were there or not.
