Boyceville Bits and Pieces – 8-20-2014

Wow what a weekend! Boyceville was full. People were coming for class reunions at Glen Hills, Eagles Nest, and Legends. But they all made Pickle Fest one of the stops. Also there was a reunion at Blodgetts.

The Memorial Park was full of campers. I’ve never seen it that full. Good Bless the place for them.

I also thought on Sunday that when people came into town, they were surprised at how clean the town was, and were surprised that this started on Friday night. Thanks to the Community Action Club for their hard work and planning.

What a parade on Sunday! The lack of bands was missed.

I had six pickle creations, two vegetable displays and five beautiful flower displays. I gave out $1.50 for blue, $1.00 for red and 50 cents for white. Remember this for next year if I’m here.

On Friday night for the Horse Parade, Fred’s brother Ted from Prairie Farm, his son Art from Oakdale, Fred’s niece from Colfax, and Norman’s daughter Kathy were all here. It was nice to see them all, and also to see old classmates of mine.

On Sunday Fred’s brother Ted was here with his son Todd. Also Fred’s niece Tanya from Amery and her son Cole spent the week here. She had her display of Jamberry nails. It was quite a weekend!

The clues must have kept them all thinking.

I heard that the quilt guild had some beautiful quilts again this year.

Wasn’t the fireworks show great on Saturday night?

As you noticed the rain held off for the Sunday parade. We sure needed the rain we got throughout the night. Thank God for the rain!

On July 27th the girls had a 80th birthday party for Fred. A beautiful turnout. 87 friends and relatives turned out to wish him  well, from Texas and Minnesota. The girls had a nice picnic lunch.

On July 20th I hosted the Wagner reunion. Close to 50 attended. Now I might have time to relax.

At 4:30 the Golden Pickle had not been found yet…now at 5:00 Cooper and Tanner Anderson came in with the pickle.

Please let me know of your whereabouts.

God Bless,
