City Block Party a major success

Original post made by Morris Brown on Aug 16, 2007

Congratulations to the City Council and especially to Mayor Fergusson for another successful block party. City staff and others who put this all together did a great job.

The turn out for this one seemed even better than the Aug. 1st party. I talked with some of the merchants and they all seemed very pleased.

I should hope that next year similar events will take place; it's a lot of fun.

I took some photos of Mayor Fergusson and also councilman John Boyle in the dunk tank. To view go to:

At last night's City Council meeting it was proposed by the Chamber to hold next year 2 block parties in each month of June, August and September.

It was noted that dunking Mayor Fergusson and Councilman John Boyle had raised $1000.00 for the Boy's & Girl's clubs.
