Add another wet Maifest to your memories! Fun but wet. Some businesses I talked to did very well while others not so good. Isn’t that always the way? Traffic was good and drinkers were kept off the streets for the most part.
Something I learned a couple years back from Linda Miskel is that volunteers need thanking. She’s right. Thank You to all who spent their time working on the Maifest. Some were paid to work hard at it; some were volunteers. Most were volunteers. Where would this town be without volunteers, anyway? Not every far. I think you all earned a jewel for your crown in Heaven.
Just a note, but when the Concert Hall and Barrel has BBQ, you better get there fast! Last Thursday they ran out in like 30 minutes. Yep, must be really good BBQ. The next night they made sure they didn’t run out and plan to never run out again. Is Hermann a brat town or a BBQ town? Maybe both! See the ad.
If you knew Dr. George Workman, you know what a supporter of Hermann he was. In his honor, the Hermann hospital is holding its 20th Memorial Golf Tournament. See the ad but golfing with a dinner/music party afterwards? YES! It’s not until June 2 but you have to let them know you’re coming by May 25. See the ad and plan on going! Fore!
Graduation was last week. Take a look at the graduates in this week’s special section. What a great-looking class. Rambunctious, rowdy and perky kids turn into adults in the blink of an eye. If you pray, a prayer for their future is in order.
Memorial Day is next weekend. Oh, my!!! Time for swimming, grilled brats, cold beer, soda and wine and thinking. Much thinking about those gone and those who died while serving our country. Not a day to mourn the broken families of war or the broken soldier but to remember those who died in action.
Definition: noun, a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered, traditionally observed on May 30 but now officially observed on the last Monday in May.
A perfect quote:
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived.”
– George S. Patton
