Lovely day in the Park

A couple of hundred folks reminded us all what is special about where we live! The event video will be produced as usual but in the meantime here are some photos.

Opening act with Pete M (originator of RP bluegrass festival) is followed by Bennet surveying the action, the bean bag toss field, Arlene – lived in RP 60+ years and still loving it, Teri G from Rebuilding Together LB resting from all the good times, 8th St. Block party set up early Sat morning, the final game of the day water balloon toss. Last but not least, intrepid videographer with photo taken by granddaughter Savannah!
