My first Memorial Day Parade as a participant went great. All except the blisters. I was with Holly Hughes, the largest contingent by far of all the other candidates. I alone gave out 4 buckets of those little Tootsi Rolls. With twenty some volunteers for Holly the kids along the way were happy Holly was running. Karen Bui and her contingent was there with her family and friends and volunteers along with Sen. Van Woerkom and with his crew. We were all pretty close in the staging area before the parade started, alot of politicking was going on and just plain meeting old and new friends. I met a guy with a Van Woerkom t shirt and he turned out to be the staff member I talked with while I was tracking down the progress of Senate Resolution L which I had ended up blogging about. It’s always nice to put a face with a name.

As always it was a big parade. There were horses and motorcycles and bands. The Scotville Marching Clown band made their traditional appearance. The antique cars made my mouth water. They were from my era. The cars I dreamed of when I wwas a teenager. That little red T Bird was awesome. They were so nice I didn’t mind being reminded of my age. I’ll be listing the other parades as I get them on my calendar at my side bar. I hope to be in others, I assume there will be Independence Day parades. As Always if you want to join in let me know. The weather was perfect and the crowds were relaxed and happy. A Good thing all around.

Holly and Karen are both awesome. When folks think Muskegon they don't usually think GOP but there's some real top-of-the-line conservative talent there!

Thanks for helping her!

Sorry for the delay in replying. I was out of town. Yup not many elephants hanging out on my corner. In my precinct. Hence my user name. lol. I just hope I can help get a few to vote for Karen. My influence is small, but I'm trying to build something, an alternative to vote for on a personel level. Holly is out of my district but she has a real chance and I help when I can.
