"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

A Pretty Thing

The ceremony at  Queen's  Diamond Jubilee Park  yesterday was very nice.

Medal recipients were there.

 Aurora's  Town Crier  did the honours and read from a parchment scroll.

A reception was held in the Skylight Gallery in the town hall directly across the road . It was well

There was cake,key lime pie, pecan pie, strawberry cheese cake cookies and fruit. Fresh hot coffee
and soft drinks ....comfortable  and convivial seating  around large round tables.

A happy occasion. Friendly and homely.

People were talking about meeting  the Duke of  York   and how very pleasant.

The handsome Park sign faces into the park and stands in a pretty garden,

A few comfortable park benches would not be amiss.

The Leisure Services Department has produced spectacular bideos of towm parks and prohrams in the past.

Methinks its time for an update.

It should be on U-tube  on the town  web site.

It's unfortunate that we don't have this feeling of glad tidings and joy annually.

Possibly there should be a Feeling of Glad Tidings and Joy committee struck, to create an event that would resonate throughout the town, and make us all truly proud of our community and ourselves.

A small pat on the back, as it were.
