THANKS FOR THE BEAUTIFUL DAY
Editor, Times Advocate:
Thanks for the coverage given to us by the folks in the Times Advocate newspaper and also by the people who publish the Western Days magazine.
Thank you, Valley Center for the beautiful day. We were overwhelmed with the love shown from many friends along the parade route. It was very humbling, but yet felt so very good. We would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce, especially Mary and Stuart and the Board for being so kind as to select us to be Grand Marshals.
A big thank you to the Christys for providing the beautiful 1941 Mercury convertible as our chariot. Another thank you to the young volunteers who drove us around and around and took very good care of us.
A very special thank you to our family for being there; with a separate thank you to Steve and Jackie Olson (owners of Mike’s Bar-be-Que) who had to walk from Vesper Road to the Nursery on the long curve to be with the family.
A particular thank you to Abe and Sam of Country Junction Deli for allowing our family to park on their property.
Thanks to all the parents who have allowed us to coach their daughters to play softball through the years. You honor us and yet we are the ones blessed over and over again to have known these young ladies.
We could not have picked a better place to raise our two boys. You are the best, Valley Center. God Bless You All.
BOB & PAT TOUSLEY, Valley
