Remember Rocky? He's the dog whom authorities say was scaled by hot water. His owner surrendered ownership in court. He's living at the Animal Shelter still. He's one of several dogs Volunteers for Animals walked through the parade, all in need of adoption. Rocky is a sweet, loving canine. Hopefully, he finds a new forever home soon.

Glad they at least still have the parade still on Main Street. Since they moved Labor Daze down to the park, however, I haven't been. It's just too much walking around on uneven ground down there for me. I'm old.

Thanks for getting a good photo of my kids carrying the Alexander Fire Department banner.
