A Little R+R

For most of the campaigners in this neck of the woods, Sat. in Scottville marked the end of the “Parade” season. This parade was really small, a fire engine, a nice band, a church float and a couple of other participants. But there were a bunch of kids. Goeff Hansen also was there and some of his crew.

The parade was pretty short also. The amazing thing was that there were people out watching. The word does get around about these things, and the kids were there with their bags for candy and we gladly filled them. For the size and length of it the people there enjoyed it. Usually we have to be a little careful how much candy we give out. This time however, the kids that were there were getting handfuls.

The kids after all are what the Christmas parade was all about, and at the end. Santa and crew came in all his glory. As it should be, we were just the warm up act for the Headliner. Santa.

Campaigns and the campaigners now put up their gear and turn towards their families and friends. As with Thanksgiving we try to remind ourselves this Christmas what we are campaigning so hard for -- family, hearth and home and the freedom to make and enjoy our lives and raise our kids to do the same.

Marve Engle County Commissioner from the 5th District is hosting the 5th, Fruitport's "Old Fashioned Christmas 2009” Just for that reason. Details below Pictures.

This is not a partisan affair, but rather a celebration of community and friendship and a nostalgic look back at what Christmas used to be like. From the results of the first one last year – A look at what Christmas can be again. All are welcome.

Time for all to take a little R+R
