Menu Plan Monday
Happy Monday to everyone. I want to begin with a big Thank You! to the Lawton-Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce, the City of Lawton, Fort Sill, and the many sponsors and volunteers who were involved with the Armed Forces Day Celebration this weekend. They provided a wonderful, all-day, family event that was free to the public. A warm Thank You! also goes out to those folks who came out to cheer on our troops and veterans at the parade and the festivities; your support was very much appreciated. The luncheon on Friday with Maj. Gen. Tommy Franks was a success. The parade on Saturday morning was damp, but very patriotic, and the rest of the day's activities were dry. The entertainers and concerts were all great, with Lee Greenwood putting on the finishing touch in a superb 90 minute concert, followed by a spectacular fireworks display!
It was disappointing, however, to see that a little bit of rain, early in the day, kept many people from attending. The time and money were still invested...and by probably, as soon as tomorrow, some people will be complaining, again, that there's nothing to do in Lawton-Fort Sill, and then traveling to outlying bigger cities and states to spend their money instead of putting it back into their own community. Please support our local events; they build up our quality of life, and the ability of local businesses to give back to the community.
Here's my weekly menu for all of you patient souls who have endured my venting; just what you need on Monday, huh?!
