SOS all it was promised to be in family fun

sos-09-turtle-scareFIRST YOU TOUCH YOUR TURTLE-Nick Heinen, 6, brought a turtle to the frog and turtle races, but wasn’t exactly ready to pick the turtle up. As a first step, he touches his turtle with one finger (and plenty of nervousness) while family friend Nicholas Brodowski, 13, holds the turtle for him

HOMEMADE FUN-You didn’t have to spend big money on the midway to have a blast. Families had a good time on their own. This ride was called “You’re blowing in the wind!”

WORTH WAITING FOR-Tiny future firefighters waited their chance to shoot the big water hoses with the help of local fire departments. New last year, the fire department event was another big hit this year.

THANK YOU, JOHN DECKER!-John Decker saved the Squire’s bacon twice during Start of Summer, once by loaning us the beautiful truck to pull our float, and again by fixing our little hitch problem (which made our float nearly half way to verticle). What a guy!
