Franciscans Downtown at the 4th of July Parade 2015

It was a great day for a parade this weekend and all three branches of the Franciscans were present for the Franciscans Downtown display.

I was nominated to drive the car with our signs on it while others including Fr. Placid Stroik ofm, Sally Crane ofs, and Leo Jacoby walked along greeting people and handing out schedules for our July activities.
Sister Sandy ssj, Deb Peltier, and Bill and Pat Moronak stayed at the Franciscan House to entertain people who stopped in for a beverage or a treat during the parade which passed right by the store front where we are located.
I was impressed at how many children ran out to the street yelling “Mrs Crane” and then gave Sally a hug, apparently they are really missing school already.  I don’t recall being that fond of my teachers at that age, she must be doing something right.
Father Placid, at the age of 79 certainly has more energy than I, to walk that great distance, in a hot Franciscan habit, visiting with so many people along the way, and smiling every minute.
Most of my photos are from the beginning of the parade, but watch our facebook page for more pics in the next few days from Leo, his are much better shots.

Good morning Bob,

I do remember a couple of teachers I did like; but not enough to run out in a parade and hug so Sally must be a step above.

Make yourself a great day.

Bob - Everyone seems to be having a great time.  Sally must be the unoffial mayor of Stevens Point.

Hi Bob Crane , From looking at the pictures, it looks like you had a great turnout.  Did you have the air conditioner on in the car, while everyone else was sweating in the hot sun and walking on scorching hot asphalt?
