Once again, I truly hope you all had a safe and happy Independence Day. While my family was away on the 4th, I know that many gathered on and around the beach. Despite the unfortunate sign that was brought to my attention, we need to remain inclusive of our law abiding and tidy neighbors / visitors. Speaking of tidy, I would like to offer a huge thanks to every one of you that cleaned up on the 5thmore than you polluted on the 4th. The world would truly be a better place if we all tried to follow this general practice: Let’s start here in Indianola.
Even though I wrote this prior to another Indianola Days, July 13 – July 15, I am sure I enjoyed preparing corn and hot dogs and seeing everyone come out for the Annual Salmon Bake. Don’t forget to volunteer next year as many hands make light work. Keep safe and enjoy another magical summer in our not so secret utopia.
