Summer Pageant Makes a Great Community Gathering

by Chelsea Gilman, Business Manager

The last 2 summers, I have attended Theatre Action Project’s Pageant in the Park at the downtown farmer’s market.  It was so much fun to see all the great puppets the kids had made, and march in the parade with a giant piece of paper mache fruit.

It’s a great feeling to be a part of the community gathering, teaching youth and their families about how our food grows.  In addition, it’s a fun spectacle to watch.

This year’s pageant will take place on Saturday, June 23 at 10:00 am.  Hope you can make it out!

P.S. I have plenty of summer camp memories.  Having spent 9 summers of my life at a camp in Bruceville, TX, I’m excited to return this summer for a camp reunion.  They’ve made so many additions to the camp, including creating a garden of their own, to teach campers about growing local produce and healthy eating.  I can’t wait to see what they’re growing.  Perhaps I’ll get ideas for my own garden.
