CHECKING THE CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS
Although we had a prior social engagement out of town, my wife and I made a stop at City Hall this morning around 10:30 and found a veritable beehive of activity, with many volunteers working hard to get the various components of the Snoopy House display placed on the lawn. Among the hardworkers I saw Steve Mensinger, Jim Righeimer, Bill Lobdell, Tom Hatch, Terry Shaw and Larry Weichmann and head elf Jim Fitzpatrick - and many others I couldn't identify.
GREAT JOB SO FAR!
We stopped again on our way home around 4 p.m., just as the crew was wrapping things up for the evening. Clearly, much progress had been made. Kudos to all those volunteers who contributed time and, in a few cases, money and chow, to help make this wonderful event come true.
GRAND UNVEILING TUESDAY EVENING
As I understand it, the Grand Unveiling (turning on the lights and other moving parts) will take place on Tuesday, December 13th, at 5:30 p.m. Since the weather report calls for rain Sunday night through, maybe, Tuesday, everyone is hoping that forecast is wrong.
TRYING TO BEAT THE RAIN
Tomorrow, Sunday, will be another full day of final preparations and testing for the grand event Tuesday. Good luck to all involved as you work hard to beat the storm.
AND NOW, A LITTLE "JINGLE BELLS"
