LA County Fair Parade, Sept. 5, 2008
We had a great time at the parade again this year. As always, it was hot, crowded, and the food smelled great. We had a great time. Our City of Pomona truck was driven by our good friend John from Community Services. As you can tell from the pictures, our truck was in front of the Pomona Police vehicles and I got a candid shot of our Chief Joe Romero. All of us in the truck yelled "Hi Chief!" Maybe that's why he's not smiling...
The pictures of all of us in the truck didn't turn out so well and the individual pictures turned out much better. I was holding our big read book for this year: "To Kill a Mockingbird," by Harper Lee. Our Senior Administrative Assistant, Maura Montellano, made signs we held up in the back of the truck such as, "Book lovers never go to bed alone." And "Libraries: Medicine Chest of the Soul." We chanted, "Knowledge is free at the Library!" A lot of people waved back and cheered for the Library. It was GREAT fun! We'll do it all again next year!
Joke of the day: What do you call cheese that's not yours?
Answer: Nacho cheese! :)
