This weekend made my heart swell with gratitude. Community members and local leaders volunteered countless hours all over town to make this one of the best weekends of the year.
Weston Memorial had a blowout June Fair on Thursday. Hundreds of kids, just sizzling with joy, filled the yards. I had a little insight into the planning: the fair took heroic amounts of work from very generous volunteers. They brought in a bird and dog micro circus, pony rides, bouncy castles and excellent games. Even the food was spectacularly good: I had a pork cutlet on a bun topped with tomatoes and fried onions. It was superb.
The Farmers’ Market had its grand opening on Saturday, and it, too, was jumping. There were lots of people and plenty of vendors, as well as castles, clowns and music.
The Queens Drive yard sale was packed, and delivered on the promise of untold treasures. While your correspondent continues to search for his next pasta-powered bike, he could have bought a Triumph or Harley.
Finally, on Sunday, 12 Division hosted their annual fair. There were ponies, food, games and music provided by the ever-excellent York Lions steel drum band.
