Sulphur's Summer Finale

Sunrise-7

Sulphur Springs Community Days, August 24, 2019.

God provided absolutely PERFECT weather for the summer celebration finale for our little Hoosier community.

 

5k-2

First on the day's agenda was the 5K Fun Run in the SON sponsored by our church.  Dana registered our 6th-grade grandson Karter, who is running middle school cross country this year.

Although it's officially not a "competitive" race (does anyone know a runner who is NOT competitive???) Anna, who is a 7th-grader, crossed the finish line first with a time just under 23 minutes.  Great showing, Anna!

 

5k-17

Karter ran great, finishing 9th of about 50 runners!  Woo-hoo, Karterman!  Later that afternoon, he still had plenty of mojo to play his first football game of the season.

Oh, the boundless energy of the young....you don't appreciate it until you don't have it any more....

 

Parade-5

Somebody's excited!  That's adorable little Madeline with my foster grand-daughter, waiting for the start of the parade...

 


Parade-9

Some parades in the area have banned the use of sirens, but not Sulphur!  The sirens were shrieking for at least one solid minute...

Gotta love a small-town fire department...

A very short but fun little parade!

 

Lunch-1

After the parade, the crowd headed to the Community Building for the traditional chicken & noodle lunch, sponsored by our church and organized for the past 20+ years by Kim.

When my man gives the thumbs up, lunch is served!

Kids-3

Later some of the youngsters participated in the kids' games.   

That's my 5-year-old grandson Krew, who with his sister Juni was staying with us for a few days, on the far left.

 


Kids-3

The sack race was a bit challenging with several tumbles by all involved, but they finished.

This Gramaw was pooped, so we didn't stick around for the afternoon/evening festivities, but I heard it was a great day all the way around.

Sulphur's summer finale.
