July 4th Kingfisher Celebration a Blast

Small town America knows how to party! We set up 100 Thanking Our Troops--God Bless America Touring Quilts in the air conditioned (thank goodness) Girl Scout House at the Kingfisher Park. Ninety-three year old Opal Baum and her daughter Ina Smith and Dee Paddack helped me sign books with all profits going for quilts for wounded soldiers and families of the fallen.
Dee sold cooling neckties and survival bracelets for The Hugs Project and had 10 Home of the Brave Quilts that people signed to give to families of the OK fallen soldiers. They loved the exhibit!
Kids had face painting, egg toss games, free swimming in their beautiful new indoor aquatics center and rides on the train and fire engines. They had a big parade, fireworks of course, food booths, art show and a rubber duck race.
