Every year since moving here, we have attended the Annual Pork Chop Dinner, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. I am always amazed by how many people drive by community events and don’t stop. While on our bikes, I did talk to one person who was driving by, and I am pretty sure I convinced her to stop. We have some excellent businesses, who often sponsor events by providing entertainment, and fun child friendly activities. Usually that means bouncy houses, face painting, balloon animals, kid crafts, etc. this time I was pleasantly surprised to see a photo booth.
The girls and I biked down, and for $15 we got dinner, music, and a souvenir. We also, got to visit with lots of people we haven’t seen in a while. Even though this is a small town, it is amazing how long you can go, between running into someone. I even got to talk to a few blog followers! When the girls were finished, (tired of listening to me gab) we loaded up our left overs, and headed home.
My Vet wasn’t able to come with us this year. Since the girls really only wanted chips, cookie, and soda, he still got to eat 2 pork chops when he stopped home between work and the council meeting.

This week alone, We’ve had music in the park, where the Dairy Princesses brought a calf to pet. The pre-show story tellers, passed out bubbles to all the kids. Santa visited with kids in the Splash Park on Wednesday, and Princeton Insurance is sponsoring a day at the Splash Park on Saturday. If you don’t want to miss any more, all of this is listed on the Community Event Calendar. Go there bookmark it, and use it. If you know of an event add it, so others can find it too. (As a business owner, My Vet is a member of the Chamber, but this is not a paid advertisement. We are proud of our community and want you to have pride as well. It Starts Here!)
