Festivities, Bayview Style

Bayview Daze is over. The crowds are gone. It is so quiet all across the bay, you could hear a pin drop. Monday. The fireworks were spectacular, as usual. Parade and street fair went off well with no difficulties, although with Liz and Lorraine running the show, it usually is smooth. This is their last year at the helm. Ralph Jones did a great job supervisng over all.

Chan Karupiah, of JD's and Scenic Bay Marinas stepped up with a $2000 donation out of his pocket, while others, like MacDonald's, raised over $5000 from their customers. Two young ladies stole the fund raising show, however, buttonholing everyone in sight for donations. We don't have the exact amount yet, but we believe that they are the individual champs.

An unverified account, revealed several arrests for unruly behavior late Saturday Night. Apparently, the "visiting Fireman" condition still applies. Yours truly had a great time acting as Master of Ceremonies for the parade, Saturday Morning. I am entertaining my brother, Stan Huseland, and his wife, Marilyn this week, so I had a chance to show off for my older brother.

I see! So not only is he an Athol, he's a cheap Athol too!

My apologies to all Atholonians!

I am being severely criticized for saying thank you to Chan for his contribution for fireworks, even to the point that I had no right to accept the check on behalf of the community. Fine! If the chamber doesn't want it, they can give it back...

I was taught at a young age to say please and thank you.

No good deed, goes unpunished!
