Was sad to see the Pearson House demolished.It had important historical
value.
I am very glad to see Immigrant House moved and eagerly await a decision
on its placement.I think it would be a great asset in a community garden/pumpkin patch type setting.
For those that didn't make the parade it was a very good time and we all had fun.I hope to see the community have more events like this.
A float of a replica of Immigrant House was really fantastic with
wonderful touches and an enthusiastic crowd.
