Happy 4th of July!
Get your Fireworks while they last! The Elmwood Fire Department has a grand selection of fireworks.
Stop by the stand, across from the post office. They are open most days and evenings and will be there late on the 4th!
Limestone Day’s Parade
We joined in the parade at Weeping Water Saturday. It was great to see all the kids that have come skating. Millie and Joe and Kabbie Mumford commandeered the car while Vince and I walked alongside. Kabbie used her best Princess wave to greet the crowd. We were in line ahead of a nice corvette and three entries ahead of the motorized toilet. That was my favorite one! And it is good to know when your motorized toilet breaks down on main street the plumber can not only unclog it but he can overhaul the engine!
